Wikis, Clickers and Online Quizzes - Safe Places to Fail

Published March 30, 2014  |  Chemistry

Michael Lautman Teacher, Cégep John Abbott College

How do you learn if you don’t do something wrong? If you’re a research scientist, 95% of the things you do are wrong. You celebrate those tiny little bits that you get right. Technology provides opportunities for students to learn from their mistakes safely. The true wisdom for the teacher is discovering what students don’t know in order to guide them to knowledge.

G Suite For Education: Collaboration-Based Pedagogy

Published January 26, 2017  |  Multidisciplinary

Kurt Vignola Teacher, Cégep de Rimouski
Maxime Ross Learning Technology Advisor, Cégep de Rimouski
Michel Ouellet Teacher, Cégep de Rimouski
Lyly Lessard Teacher, Cégep de Rimouski

In November of 2015, Maxime Ross, a Techno-pedagogical Advisor at the Cégep de Rimouski, published an In-depth report on Profweb entitled Le projet Chromebook et le déploiement des outils Google pour l’Éducation. In this report, he presented the main steps that led to the introduction of Google Classroom and Chromebook laptops to a cohort of students in the Arts and Sciences program (AS). This first experiment aimed to explore Google's cloud-based tools, to verify their pedagogical use and to justify their deployment to the entire Cégep de Rimouski college community. So where are things now, a year later?

Using Action Research to Create an Inter-collegial Student Learning Community

Published November 10, 2016  |  Multidisciplinary

Gina Lavine Coordinator of the Modern Languages Department, Collège Laflèche
Susan MacNeil Editor, Profweb

Having collaborated on past endeavours, we were excited about our latest initiative that would bring together students from different colleges, to work together on a common project. With help from an Entente-Canada-Québec (ECQ) grant, we were able to implement our project – Action Research: Learning Communities in Sustainable Development. The main objectives were to engage students in action research, related to sustainable development, and to participate in a learning community using an Internet based platform. The theme of the project made it very accessible, touching courses from various English second language classes, to geography, humanities, social science, science and more!

Unlocking Research Everywhere

Published September 1, 2014  |  Multidisciplinary

Nicole Haché Library Coordinator, Champlain College - Campus Saint-Lambert

The library at Champlain Saint-Lambert has an amazing support from our campus director, Don Shewan. Knowing there were grants available, he came to me a couple of years ago looking for a project idea from the library. I came up with the idea to develop more information literacy tools and videos. Given the impact that we had with our students’ academic successes from that project, I can now expect a phone call asking, “Do you have a project?” whenever funds are available. I therefore need to keep scanning the blogosphere and twittersphere for trends in academic librarianship. This keeps ideas with respect to different technology related projects that could help not only our students but also other colleges and libraries within the province simmering on the back burner.

3 Platforms to Create Video-Based Tasks that Actively Engage Students

Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

In 2018, cell phones, tablets and computers combined with free applications or software give us the ability to create high quality video and broadcast it within moments. The internet gives us access to vast free video resources. Yet in spite of these technological innovations, students still consume digital media mostly passively in classroom settings. Three free online platforms allow you to create different types of video-based tasks that engage your students more actively.

Active Learning

Jean Desjardins Learning Technology Advisor, Collège Sainte-Anne
Isabelle Senécal Director of Teaching, of Pedagogical Innovation and of International Development, Collège Sainte-Anne

The active learning methods have in common of placing the students in the middle of the learning process. Their teachers can then also think about giving them a role in the planning of the evaluation. Active learning is inspired by real-life contexts that are meaningful for the students, which can increase their level of motivation for the tasks that are suggested to them. It encourages durable learnings rather than using only their short-term memory.
