The Pomodoro Technique

Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

When presenting my course during the first class of the semester, I used to tell my students I would rigorously respect the start and end times of our classes while scheduling breaks in a more flexible manner depending on that week’s content and activities. I’d never questioned this practice until I was stuck in a rather tedious meeting without knowing how long it would go on for. Time seemed to take on another dimension in the absence of precise markers. Realizing my students might feel the same way, I decided to look for a more effective method to organize and manage time in my classes. I found this in the Pomodoro technique.

My Use of Francomane — Remedial French as a Second Language Courses

Rana El Gharbie Teacher, Vanier College

As a teacher, I am always on the lookout for new resources for teaching French as a Second Language (FSL). While there are numerous textbooks, online resources are rare for students in remedial courses. You can then imagine my joy when I discovered Francomane last year. That website, fun and easy to use, is very popular with my students.

Engagement, SEL and Positive Behaviours: A Conversation with Classcraft CEO Shawn Young

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb

Classcraft is a Quest-based system that promotes student engagement and positive behaviours by gamifying the classroom. The Quebec-based company has been moving from strength to strength and garnering awards since Profweb first reported on their platform in 2015. In January 2019 I travelled to Sherbrooke to interview Classcraft co-founder and CEO Shawn Young in order to learn more about a number of new features added to the Classcraft ecosystem in 2018, like their EMS analytics, the Quests Marketplace and a recent mobile app update.
