What is CRI?

CRI is co-constructing and sharing new ways of learning, teaching, conducting research and mobilizing collective intelligence in the fields of life, learning and digital sciences, in order to address the UN's sustainable development goals (SDGs).

CRI operates around 4 main areas :

  • Developing and hosting educational programs, from preschool to high school (Savanturiers - École de la Recherche), interdisciplinary Bachelor, Master, and PhD (EURIP Graduate School) as well as lifelong learning degree programs of the Université de Paris.
  • Conducting research within its INSERM-Université de Paris research Collaboratory Unit, advised and guided by a Scientific Advisory Board, composed of prestigious international scientific leaders.
  • Developing the #LearningPlanet initiative in partnership with UNESCO, of which it also holds a Chair, and AFD to inspire and empower learners of all ages who wish to identify, develop and amplify the most effective ways to learn how to solve problems together.
  • Building a living campus where innovative makers can set up digital infrastructures for learning communities to help them to resolve global challenges.

CRI was founded in 2006 by François Taddei and Ariel Lindner with the Bettencourt Schueller Foundation as an essential and key supporting partner and Paris City Hall. It also benefits from the support of a wide range of foundations, corporate sponsors and institutions including the University of Paris, with which CRI co-founded the interdisciplinary action-based research challenge institute (“Institut des Défis”) to prototype a model of a Learning University enable of responding to the global challenges of our time.

[Premiers Cris] Épisode 3 : MOOC 'LA PETITE CULTURE NUMÉRIQUE : le développement du tout-petit à l'ère numérique'
La diffusion de l'épisode 3 du MOOC 'La petite culture numérique : le développement du tout-petit à l'ère numérique' sera suivi d'un débat avec des intervenant.e.s.

Synopsis Dans une démarche interdisciplinaire, ce MOOC réunit de nombreux acteurs et actrices de la petite enfance (chercheur•e•s, professionnelles de petite enfance, designers et entrepreneur•e·s, acteurs et actrices politiques, etc). En cinq épisodes, ce MOOC questionne la relation du jeune enfant aux outils numériques et encourage l’éveil de l’esprit critique, autour d’un sujet encore en pleine exploration.

Épisode 3. Ça se complique Si des effets néfastes sur le développement socio-cognitif et langagier de l’exposition de l’enfant de moins de 3 ans à la télévision ont été montrés, les recherches concernant les outils numériques mobiles (tablettes, smartphones, jeux vidéos) sont encore incertaines. Cet épisode propose de se questionner sur les différences entre causalité et corrélation, sur le lien entre contexte, contenu et contenant mais aussi sur les biais de la recherche clinique et en laboratoire. Afin de mieux comprendre les enjeux entraînés par l’utilisation du numérique chez le jeune enfant, la dédiabolisation des écrans et l’accompagnement à la parentalité apparaissent comme des réponses pertinentes.

Intervenant.e.s

Estelle Cheminat, Directrice adjointe de crèche Marie-Noëlle Clément, Psychiatre, Directrice de l'Hopîtal de jour pour enfants André Boulloche Olivier Grugier, Maître de conférences, Sorbonne Université / INSPE de l’Académie de Paris

Thematic Workshop: Data & Humans, a conflictual mutual relationship

In the modern world, data has become increasingly synonymous with humans. What are our shopping habits? Our metacognitive experiences? Despite the fact that some people might be "afraid" of the increasing availability of this data, studying human behaviour forms the core of cognitive science research, and is a powerful tool for understanding human cognition.

This data comes in all shapes and sizes: preferences, accuracy, response times, physiological signals, and many more. In our workshop, we will give you an overview of the incredible variety of methods current research uses to investigate human beings. If you're curious about what data can reveal about humans (and how humans make sense of this data) come and join us!

Registration is free but mandatory to have access to the zoom link.

CRI Research Seminar: Jake Wintermute

Distributed Approaches to Teaching and Doing Synthetic Biology

Emerging applications of synthetic biology promise major changes in medicine, food, ecology and other domains. Even as the impacts of genetic technologies become more diverse and widespread, the institutions that develop them remain homogenous and centralized. The result is substantial public opposition to many new biotechnologies.

What if we, the scientific experts, are doing everything wrong? This talk will be a conversation about strategies for including more people in the process of doing research and in setting research priorities. Who should be doing synthetic biology and what are their motivations for doing so? How can we balance expert knowledge with public values? What would a popular version of biotechnology look like and what would it take to transition from our current practices?

Themathic Workshop: Digital society symposium

How do digital technologies impact the world of yesterday, today and tomorrow ?

Digital sciences have created new spaces of exchange and discussion in our society. These new spaces have quickly taken an important role in modifying social relations, information sharing norms and many more aspects of our daily life. The following symposium will engage a reflection on these new spaces, in which sociological phenomena are observable, in order to have a better understanding of our society. In addition, it will guide you through an overview of innovative digital tools, developed by the students of the master AIRE.

The digital society and its new culture have led to consequent transformations in how we share information, feeding off the data its producing, all the while creating new knowledge. The use of the latest digital tools in the sector of communication, such as 5G, is not the only existing challenge. The current ecological crisis raises questions regarding the role of digital technologies in our society. Is it a self-serving phenomenon, that inevitably will remain in place and continue to take a huge part in environmental pollution, as it does now, or can it help find new solutions, new perspectives? How can digital technologies support and transform the society of yesterday, today and tomorrow?

During the symposium, students of the master AIRE, from the Learning and Digital tracks, Jean Philippe Cointet, researcher at Science Po Medialab and others invited guests, will propose an exploration of today's digital technologies and society, by focusing on these new spaces of exchanges particularly social media, computational sociology, learning and the environment.

All the informations to attend will be updated soon.

The Digital Society Symposium is part of the CRI Thematic Workshop. Do not hesitate to check out other events on CRi Events!

Thematic Workshop : Action Learning and AI In Educational Contexts

Artificial Intelligence is now a part of our normal lives. We are surrounded by this technology from automatic parking systems, smart sensors for taking spectacular photos, and personal assistance. Similarly, Artificial Intelligence in education is being felt, and the traditional methods are changing drastically. In teaching, the use of virtual and augmented reality has been on the rise, exploring different means of interaction and student engagement. Based on constructivist pedagogic principles, augmented reality pretends to provide the learner/user with effective access to information through real-time immersive experiences.

This thematic workshop is focusing on the role of AI for education and social change. Our speaker Atish Gonsalves will dedicate his speech in this matters. Master students' will also present their research topics and internship experience related to Education Technologies.

Our speaker : Atish Gonsalves, Humanitarian Leadership Academy, UK

Atish Gonsalves is a social technologist, entrepreneur and the Global Innovation Director of the Humanitarian Leadership Academy based in London.Atish has consistently implemented successful educational-technology (edtech) solutions that have helped democratize learning for thousands of learners in difficult contexts

Please registred here for the event. The event will take place virtually. Additional information will be sent by email.
