“Just-In-Time Flipped Classroom” Pedagogy in Biology

Sophie Dion Teacher, Cégep de Saint-Félicien

For a few years now, I have noticed the necessity of adjusting the teaching methods I use with the students in the Animal Health Technology program. This is most apparent in the Cells and Genetics course in biology, which is taught during the first semester.

Teaching Tourism… From Japan!

Ariane Arpin-Delorme Teacher, Collège LaSalle

In May 2015, Collège LaSalle’s ICT committee sent out a call for proposals to all teachers, inviting anyone interested in integrating technology into their teaching practice to submit a project proposal. At that point, I had just been invited to an Asian tourism trade show and to a familiarization tour of Tokyo, scheduled to take place in the fall of 2015. I applied for a grant and was informed in August that my project had been chosen. This meant I was going to be able to teach a blended course to my “Cultural and Tourist Attractions of Asia and the South Pacific” students, starting in a regular classroom. Then, from September 20th to October 5th, 2015, my classes would be live from Japan!

Liki Lab and On-line Stores: My New ‘Fave’ in Teaching

Natacha Tremblay Teacher, Collège LaSalle

During the fall semester of 2014, I attended a presentation on Liki Labs that was organized as part of the Ped Day at my college. It was love at first sight! Right away, I decided to work with the platform for second half of a course I would be teaching during the winter semester of 2015, entitled Sales Office or Store Layout.

Becoming an Omnipresent Teacher with Wunderlist

Murielle Cayouette Teacher, Collège O'Sullivan de Québec

As a CEGEP teacher whose workload is split between 2, sometimes 3 colleges in any given semester, I am well-acquainted with the challenges of following the progress of a group while physically being in a different location. This article is an account of how Wunderlist, a free online application designed for project management, facilitated my monitoring and counseling of the students both inside and outside of the classroom.

ClassCraft and My Quest for Student Engagement

Lisa Deguire Teacher, Cégep de Jonquière

I like to stay abreast of new technologies, and gamification is an aspect I have wanted to integrate into my English Second Language classes for some time now. I am not a gamer but I have lived with gamers so I am very familiar with the allure of the very popular Massive Multi Online Role Play Games. (MMROPG’s). Like many teachers I dream of seeing my students as attracted to, interested in, and excited about their ESL class content as I am. Unfortunately, most games I came across and could integrate into my planning fell short of my needs or were difficult to adapt to the ESL classroom. Then I discovered Classcraft!
