Pascal Plantard (Université Rennes 2)

I am full professor at the University of Rennes 2 in Brittany, Co-Director of the largest research network on the uses of technologies, the GIS M@rsouin and co-head of digital research at the CREAD laboratory. Specialist in multidisciplinary research programs combining empirical, qualitative and quantitative methodologies, crossed with cooperative methodologies of open science, I work on the practices of digital technologies in the fields of education, training, higher education and medico-social. I develop an anthropological approach to uses, inside and outside the institutional environment, which starts from the conceptualization of techno-imaginaries and representations, taking into account the historical depth and the symbolic dimension of uses, to result in an objectification of contexts of action and models of educational or social interventions.
