Abstract

While Quebec\u2019s students mainly use Web search engines like Google to find information for their studies, teachers are tasked with giving them the proper training to do it efficiently. But are future teachers well prepared to accomplish their mission? This study analyzes the information seeking process used by Quebec\u2019s pre-service teachers to find information on the Web. Results show that a majority of them are novice information searchers; they rarely plan ahead for their Web searching, they use basic search strategies, and scarcely diversify their searching tools. Results are discussed and recommendations are suggested to improve the information seeking process taught to pre-service teachers.Alors que les lves du Qubec cherchent prioritairement de l\u2019information sur des moteurs de recherche comme Google, il revient aux enseignants de les former le faire efficacement. Mais la relve est-elle bien prpare pour accomplir cette mission? Cette tude vise dcrire et analyser les pratiques dclares et effectives de futurs enseignants qubcois en recherche d\u2019information sur le Web. Les rsultats dmontrent qu\u2019ils emploient principalement un mode d\u2019action novice : peu ou pas de planification, stratgies de recherche basiques et faible diversification des outils. Une discussion critique des rsultats et des recommandations en formation initiale viennent clore cet article.
