The purpose of this paper is to introduce the results of a research programme carried out by a multidisciplinary team, the Equipe de Recherche Technologique (ERT) of the IUFM1, University of Montpellier II. This programme was initially aimed at bringing “educational gestures” to the fore of reflexion in order to analyse how teachers perform in their classrooms. The perspective of this work was to contribute to the general reflexion on the teaching profession, on the one hand, and to enable the creation of computer assisted learning (CAL) tools for the initial training of teachers-to-be, on the other. We will first introduce the set of educational gestures the team has shed light on and which have been brought together in a “model”. We will then deal with the application which has been made of this model in a teacher training oriented CAL prototype. Eventually, we will discuss the implementation of this prototype in an initial teacher training programme, notably for the teaching of foreign languages.
