Game Thinking as a Strategy to Promote Deep Learning in Any Field

Published November 20, 2017  | 

Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

While observing my students in Cégep Limoilou’s Video Game Design program, I noticed their ability to mobilize a specific skill set comprising critical analysis, problem solving and creativity. As I built the generic course plan for a new course, English for Video Game Design II, I included a gamification project to specifically hone these skills, often referred to as game thinking. After testing this approach with my students in the fall 2017 term, I am convinced it can benefit students in virtually any program.

ICT and Success - Conclusions from the ARC Meta-synthesis

Published January 12, 2014  |  Multidisciplinary

Christian Barrette Project Manager, ARC

The Association pour la recherche au collégial (ARC) conducted a meta-synthesis of the results of 55 research projects using ICT in college teaching in 2012. Christian Barrette presents some of the conclusions that have been drawn from this meta-synthesis. One interesting conclusion is that experiments designed to increase deep learning benefit most from the contribution of ICT. Barrette also informs us about "winning conditions" that distinguish successful experiments from others.

Mathematics and Programming in the Cloud with CoCalc

Published June 13, 2017  |  Mathematics

Gabriel Indurskis Teacher, Champlain College - Campus Saint-Lambert

Cloud computing is an increasingly important part of the college experience in Quebec. With more and more educational establishments using Google Tools, Office 365 and Moodle, there is less and less of an emphasis on having computers with a laundry list of applications installed. When you can fire up a web browser and have access to a wide range of tools, it is a game-changer. The field of mathematics is also well-entrenched within this computing trend, with the appearance of cloud-based innovations in the past couple of years, not the least of which is a powerful platform for cloud computing known as SageMathCloud, which has recently been rebranded as CoCalc. Since this name change is very recent, most of the information and tutorials on the internet still make reference to the old name, and this article will use both names interchangeably.

Free software, Freeware, Open, Proprietary, and Cloud-based: How to Make Sense of it All?

Published March 3, 2017  |  Multidisciplinary

Christophe Reverd Learning Technology Advisor, Vitrine technologie-éducation

A great deal of confusion continues to exist around the terms open-source software, free software, and other software that is known as ‘proprietary.’ There are already a number of terms out there without adding the notion of cloud-based software to the mix. Let’s try and make things a little clearer.

Doing PD Differently: A Conversation with Avi Spector from the RÉCIT Network

Published September 13, 2017  |  Multidisciplinary

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb

The fall is upon us and many IT-REPs and REPTICs in the college network are back in the swing of things, supporting individual teachers who are trying new approaches and technologies in their classrooms. Many have also begun preparing for upcoming ped days - thinking about how to provide professional development (PD) opportunities for faculty that will have a positive impact on their respective college. I recently had the opportunity to meet with Avi Spector from Quebec’s RÉCIT network and asked him about his approach to working with teachers. The approach he is currently using can be an inspiration for us all.

The Low-Tech Active Learning Classroom at Cégep de Sept-Îles

Sharon Coyle Teacher, Cégep de Sept-Îles

The term active learning classroom usually evokes images of a sleek space packed with all of the latest technological bells and whistles. Not so at Cégep de Sept-Îles. To fit our teaching and learning needs and goals, we consciously opted for a classroom where inter-activity – not technology – plays a central role. This being 2017, of course it doesn’t mean we relegated electronic devices altogether. Here’s the story that explains the “how” and “why” of our low-tech active learning classroom.
