Videos, Google Forms and the Flipped Classroom

Emmanuelle Goulet Teacher, Cégep du Vieux Montréal

It was a bit of a fluke that I integrated the flipped classroom approach into my pedagogy during the winter of 2012. In the beginning, it was a solution to ensure that classes would start up again after the student strike. Since then I have been using this method by choice and for the pleasure of the experience of flipping some of my classes. With the right tools and the support of the ICT Education Advisor from my college, the transition to a flipped classroom went very well.

Dance and the iPad: In Step Together

Jessika Vigneault Educational Advisor, Cégep de Saint-Laurent
Mélanie Martin Teacher, Cégep de Saint-Laurent
Caroline Cotton Teacher, Cégep de Saint-Laurent

ICTs have always had a certain attractiveness for teaching students how to dance. The Dance program at the Cégep de Saint-Laurent has used technological advances in the past and is continuing the tradition by integrating iPads into the practice of teaching. Marc-André Laflamme, an Editor for the French Side of Profweb interviewed Jessika, Mélanie and Caroline. He gathered and summarized their thoughts into this Real Life Story on the use of mobile tablets in the Dance program.

Immediate Feedback to Students Using the Branching Feature of Google Forms

Kevin Lenton Teacher, Vanier College

As a basic instructional principle, learners need feedback, and to receive maximum benefit from feedback, it should be supplied as soon as possible after an assessment or ideally after each question. I recently experimented with Google Forms to find a way to provide this immediate feedback.

Getting Second Language Students Talking Together with Social Media

Gina Lavine Coordinator of the Modern Languages Department, Collège Laflèche

As I previously observed on Profweb, getting second language students to communicate in English can be a challenge, since they are often uncomfortable speaking in front of their peers - especially at the 604-101-level. Recently, my colleagues and I have come up with a great way to break the ice and to get my students to use the English language using social media.

Owning Our History With Podcasts and Cognitive Maps

Martine Dumais Teacher, Cégep Limoilou

I begin each semester by telling my students that history is not something to be learned by heart. Rather, it is a kind of material that we work with. The imagery I like to use is sculpting with clay. They laugh a bit at this, but the analogy helps them to understand that they need to play with the material, as well as to interpreting and integrate it. This is how the subject matter becomes intellectually stimulating and, as a result, easier to learn.

Mixing Business with Pleasure: Using Socrative on Smartphones in Class!

Susan MacNeil Teacher, Collège Mérici

Most students have smartphones. I didn’t used to enjoy them fooling around with these gadgets in class, whether they were browsing through their social media updates or texting. Since I don’t like policing my class either, I integrated the use of cell phones into my class. I made them a tool for learning!
