Spelling, physics-chemistry, English, art history: 10 TikTok accounts to improve in class


They are a bit like the new generation Mac Lesggy and Stéphane Bern. On the social network TikTok, teachers have created accounts where they upload short videos every day to learn anecdotes to shine in society or improve in a subject. All areas are explored: maths, spelling, English, art history or even physics and chemistry. All these teachers point out that these videos will never replace lessons in school, but they do provide knowledge and open the minds of young and old. Thus, in the midst of the millions of videos of dances, songs, imitations or even cute animals, we discover nuggets that allow us, for example, to distinguish between an apocope and an apheresis or even to analyze a table by Gustave Caillebotte. . France Inter has selected 10 accounts to follow. Mistress Adeline will review spelling rules Grammar and spelling reminders in 30 seconds! This is what “Mistress Adeline”, a school teacher in Les Boques-du-Rhône, has to offer on her TikTok account. He threw it during the lockdown for fun. At first, the idea was to talk about her work, and then “one day they sent me a text message that contained a misspelling. It gave me the idea to make a video,” she says. And it works, “several people recognized each other” in this video. For this, we learn to make the difference between “in any case” and “in any case”, to conjugate the verb to send or to grant the color adjectives. This “responds to the needs of pupils but also of students and young parents”, he underlines. According to TikTok’s statistics, its videos are watched by users between the ages of 25 and 45. More than 1.8 million have subscribed. We also find Adeline’s advice on Facebook, Youtube, Twitter and Instagram and in a book published on September 7, “Finies les faults”. Athenasol to play with wordsIn his videos, “Athenasol” explains the etymology of words or their meaning with good humor and using all the codes of the social network on his own. In her presentation video, this teacher says she is “passionate about language, its nuances and its complexities.” Thus, in a few seconds, he transmits his knowledge of French, Latin and Greek to his many subscribers. That’s more than 694,000 to follow him every day. His most viewed video – in the longest word – has been viewed more than 3.2 million times. He also likes to answer the challenges posed by his subscribers. For example: find out what autotopoagnosia is; a word with three double consonants or an 11-letter word without an identical letter. Aartemis to analyze the paintings For a year and a half, Marlène and Héloïse, two visual artists and professors of art and art history, have been sharing their “analyses to be shown in a museum” in their TikTok account “Aartemis”. After realizing that the secondary and high school students were rather “disengaged” or even “refractory” in their subject, they had the idea to teach differently, to “change the way they speak, minimizing the art”. Marlene says. A method they also decide to try on TikTok. So in April 2021 they open their account. “The goal was to bring people back to museums, especially the public who don’t feel entitled to go there.” In their videos, they share their knowledge and help to understand the meaning of certain paintings. For example “La Lletera”, or rather “Server pouring milk”. Day after day, they are gaining subscribers. There are more than 111,000 watching their videos. Yanntoutcourt to delve into history and decipher the news “Yann tout court” is somewhat of a precursor to teachers on TikTok. This high school teacher from the Toulouse region of Languedoc launched on this platform at the end of 2019, “first out of curiosity”. The initial goal was not to do pedagogy. And then came the confinement and distance learning. “I was already uploading my video lessons on Youtube for my students and I thought it was an opportunity to try it. I heard that a lot of young people were going to TikTok and I thought why not me.” He was quickly spotted by the platform, which offered him to make, on a voluntary basis, educational videos for TikTok France, for example about the First World War. Then, “in the fall of 2020 I surpassed the 100,000 subscriber mark and started thinking about what kind of content I could offer.” He then refocused his story on the deconstruction of ideas received in history and the search for false information in order to provide the young – and the not so young – with the right tools to develop a critical mind. As the patent approaches, it also offers some methodological advice. “But I don’t see TikTok as an extension of the classroom. A video will never replace an in-person course,” he says. A method that pays: His account has more than 685,000 subscribers and some videos exceed 4 million views. Wonderwomath to reconcile with math With “Wonderwomath”, math is no longer a nightmare. Within seconds, this teacher explains the concepts of the lesson, gives review tips, suggests riddles, or even answers the famous question: “How will learning math help me?” His account was created in January 2021 and already has 278,000 subscribers. Monsieur le chat to discover scientific experiments “Monsieur le chat” is a teacher of physics and chemistry in a high school in the suburbs of Paris. He also launched his TikTok account during the lockdown, first to have fun and keep busy, and then to share his knowledge. “As long as it serves” the students, he explains. In short, “to link the useful with the pleasant”. In his videos he offers experiments and anecdotes about physics and chemistry. Convert mechanical energy into electrical energy, learn about chemistry equipment, or explain the usefulness of ant antennae. All with humor. Result: 324,000 subscribers and a video viewed more than 5 million times. What will be seen by the king in the matter, Jamy, from the show “It’s not rocket science”. Jamy to know all about science Yes! Jamy hasn’t really left his little round glasses. He also has his TikTok channel, @epicurieux, where we learn what the UV index is, how a wind turbine works or what hypervelocity is. He has 1.4 million subscribers and between 20,000 and 4 million views for each of his videos. Mr Reveur to learn how to draw On his TikTok account, “Mr Reveur” gives tips on how to learn to draw. This art teacher publishes short tutorials explaining how to draw eyes, a braid or even Superman’s S. He created his account in December 2019 and has over 18,000 subscribers. Mike the Chamaleon to improve English “I love to play, laugh and learn,” writes “Mike the Chamaleon” on his TikTok account. And it actually does all three at the same time: play, laugh and learn. This American teacher – who lives in Spain – has developed a very special method for learning languages ​​on TikTok: addressing the user directly and making him repeat the exercises. His way of doing things and his humor seduce 8.7 million subscribers. And the number of views soared: 41 million views for his video about a dialogue that allows training on the simple past and the “present perfect”. Patricia Ruiz to immerse herself in Spanish and English culture There are many TikTok accounts for learning a language. To improve both in English and Spanish, go to the account of “Patry Ruiz”. This teacher sees life in “Spanglish”, that is, she alternates between the two languages. Enough to learn a lot of vocabulary and everyday expressions.
