Abstract/Notes: Dans la continuité de mon parcours professionnel au cœur des soins palliatifs, d’abord comme infirmière coordinatrice d’un réseau de santé puis comme cadre de santé d’un centre de soins palliatifs rassemblant une unité d’hospitalisation et une équipe mobile, j’ai décidé en 2015 de me consacrer à la formation des soignants à partir de mon expertise métier. Afin d’acquérir des nouvelles compétences en pédagogie, j’ai suivi plusieurs cursus de formateur. Sur ce chemin j’ai eu la chance de croiser l’organisme de formation AG&D (Accompagnement en Gérontologie et Développements), qui proposait une technique d’accompagnement des personnes présentant des troubles cognitifs, basée sur la méthode «Maria Montessori» déjà utilisée dans le monde éducatif. Curieuse d’en savoir plus sur ce concept, j’ai suivi la formation proposée par AG&D et animée par le professeur Cameron Camp, psychologue américain à l’origine de cette adaptation. Les valeurs fondatrices de cette approche correspondaient à celles sur lesquelles s’étaient construits les soins palliatifs et cet enseignement est venu théoriser la pratique que je connaissais. Chaque mot et argumentation avancés par Cameron Camp et traduits par Jérôme Erkes, neuropsychologue directeur du département recherche et développement chez AG&D, résonnaient dans un monologue intérieur qui disait: «mais bien sûr, c’est tellement logique et évident!» [In the continuity of my professional career at the heart of palliative care, first as a nurse coordinator of a health network and then as a health manager of a palliative care center bringing together a hospital unit and a mobile team, I decided in 2015 to devote myself to the training of caregivers based on my professional expertise. In order to acquire new pedagogical skills, I followed several training courses. On this path I had the chance to meet the training organization AG&D (Support in Gerontology and Developments), which offered a support technique for people with cognitive disorders, based on the "Maria Montessori" method already used in the educational world. Curious to learn more about this concept, I took the training offered by AG&D and facilitated by Professor Cameron Camp, the American psychologist behind this adaptation. The founding values ​​of this approach corresponded to those on which palliative care was built and this teaching came to theorize the practice that I knew. Every word and argument put forward by Cameron Camp and translated by Jérôme Erkes, neuropsychologist director of the research and development department at AG&D, echoed in an inner monologue that said: "But of course, it is so logical and obvious!"]

Abstract/Notes: Montessori materials were used in two adult day-care centers to slow cognitive decline in adults with Alzheimer's disease. Using a within-subject design, participants in one adult day care received three months of the Montessori materials, then standard intervention later. Participants were administered a battery of cognitive measures at baseline, three months, and six months. Favorable scores for the Montessori condition were significant with the subscales of the Ordinal Scale of Psychological Development-Modified (total, object permanence, means-ends), Dementia Rating Scale (total, attention, concept, memory), Parachek Geriatric Behavior Rating Scale (social behavior), and the Wechsler Memory Scale (digit forward). Montessori materials appeared instrumental in positively influencing basic cognitive abilities of attention, object permanence, and social behavior.

Abstract/Notes: Robot-assisted language learning (RALL) is an emerging field of human-robot interaction to support language acquisition and literacy development with a social robot in multi-modal ways. As learning is an inherently social activity, the effectiveness of dyadic and triadic types of social interaction in RALL and child-robot interaction (CRI) needs to be investigated. In early literacy education, the Montessori method is a remarkable child-centered and collaborative learning approach. Bridging these two spaces, our work attempts to examine if the nature of social interaction, dyadic and triadic, affects children’s outcomes in an environment that adheres to the Montessori principles. To this end, we conducted a between-subject design experiment with 33 Kazakh children aged 6–8 to compare the effectiveness of learning Kazakh Latin in the dyadic and triadic conditions in a Moveable Alphabet learning scenario with a social robot. The analyses revealed mixed results for dyadic and triadic conditions in terms of cognitive gains, while emotional engagement was better in the triadic condition. We discuss these results in the perspective of key insights from the current study and implications for future research.
