Les disparités culturelles et linguistiques de la Francophonie comme atout de son développement technologique en communication et en éducation

Abstract : In a world characterized by cultural and linguistic diversities, the French language community has always acted in symbiosis with the local languages and cultures of its geopolitical area. The Agency of French speaking Universities (AUF), an important academic actor in the field of education and research for many emerging countries, performs a strategic role in the field of e-Learning standardization defending the French language peculiarities in the international educational standardisation contexts and promoting its close cooperation and exchange with cultural and linguistic diversities of its international partners. This paper highlights some results of seven years of active contribution of AUF delegation to ISO Subcommittee 36 (SC36) charged with international e-Learning standards development. Our contribution to the work of SC36, has demonstrated the strategic importance of defending the cultural and linguistic diversities of all partner languages of AUF as a step against the world digital divide. We are intenting to bridge the selective and realtively closed framework of e-Learning standards and the emerging world e-learning communities through technical and research connectors. These principles must obviously go beyond the wishful thinking and be converted into concrete implementation of projects, strategies and actions. This is particularly the case of AUF delegation to SC36 with the creation of events and development of tools and resources that reinforce our positions into the ISO standards development for Information Technologies for Learning, Education and Training (ITLET). We conclude by the need for these projects to be subscribed within a framework of collaboration taking the French speaking world as a pragmatically concrete construction of these synergies.
