The deployment of digital technologies, particularly the web, has transformed society and the teaching profession. Their initial training is therefore being called into question, even obsolete. This has led to a great deal of questioning about the content to be transmitted to the teenagers in front of them. The meaning of today's teaching had to be questioned.
The two authors, both documentary professors, explain: " We were looking for a global and systemic vision that could give meaning to our pedagogical practice. Both of us have always liked to keep up with the latest research. ".

"To pass on a little of the breath that inspires us and the joy we experience every day with the students."
