    Teaching is neither an innovation nor a fleeting vogue. It has been with human beings throughout history. Recently and in the wake of the revolution of new teaching methods and theories, competence of teachers in adopting the new methods has become appealing to many educational researchers. Eventually, it is maintained that taking part in teaching workshops and watching others’ teaching practice could be of a great help. Correspondingly, this study aimed at investigating student teachers’ attitudes towards teaching workshops and their effects on their competence in adopting the new methods. 40 student teachers who had some experience of attending such workshops were given questionnaires and to gain more in-depth data, semistructured interviews were conducted with ten of them. The findings of this study indicate that most of the student teachers had positive attitudes towards taking part in teaching workshops. Moreover they opine such workshops are effective and satisfactory. The findings of the present study leads us to the notion of necessity for teaching workshops as a supplement to the current internship course.

    It is widely acknowledged that optimal learning in children takes place when they are motivated to discover and learn in a playful and relaxed atmosphere. The purpose of this action research was to investigate the role of teaching accompanied by motor activities in the English achievement of Iranian learners. A sample including 44 young language learners were placed into a control group and an experimental group. The learners in the control group were taught in the traditional way, but those in the experimental group were taught English accompanied by physical activities in a gym-like class and through playing roles and acting out. At the end, a written exam was administered to both groups and the results were analyzed. Results from this study showed that the treatment had a significant effect on learners’ achievement. This finding is discussed and some pedagogical implications are provided.

    Au cours de ces dernières années, l’usage des technologies de l’information et de la communication (TIC) dans l’enseignement/apprentissage des langues-cultures étrangères s’est considérablement développé en Iran. Les enseignants sont concernés par l’usage des outils propres aux TICE (technologies de l’information et de la communication pour l’enseignement) et leur intégration dans les pratiques pédagogiques. Les TICE permettent aux enseignants d’actualiser et d’enrichir non seulement les contenus de leurs enseignements, mais aussi de partager leurs expériences avec d’autres enseignants. Aussi, les TICE participent à la mise en place d’un espace de partage qui peut se prolonger en dehors des écoles. Ce qui introduit vers un enseignement/apprentissage interactif continu. Dans cette contribution, nous présenterons les enjeux didactiques d’une enquête menée dans une école privée à Téhéran, avec un espace numérique de travail accessible aux élèves et aux enseignantes. Cette enquête nous permettra de savoir si la pratique des TICE correspond aux besoins de nos élèves ainsi qu’aux attentes du processus didactique mis en place dans cet établissement. Aussi, nous allons essayer de comprendre quels sont les réseaux sociaux et les logiciels les plus utilisés par les enseignantes et les apprenants de français et quels seront les autres outils de TICE nécessaires à former les enseignantes.
