Auto-and Allo-Confrontation as Tools for Reflective Activities

Abstract : This paper presents a methodology of assistance to reflective activity, based on confronting subjects with the video recording of their own activity or of that of others. A typology of the various forms of use of confrontation is proposed and illustrated from a study based on the construction of technical procedures. Two categories of results are highlighted. On the one hand, individual auto-confrontation (confronting subjects to their own activity) reveals the cognitive processes underlying the activity. On the other hand, individual allo-confrontation (confronting subjects to an activity they practice but which is performed by someone else, without the latter being present) allows subjects to develop their knowledge by getting aware of other types of representations.
