Empowering Students with Liberal Education and Technology

Gabriel Flacks Teacher, Champlain College - Campus Saint-Lambert

Enabling student empowerment by offering students access to a personalized and inquiry-based education is a hallmark of the liberal education model. When a student is invited to share their academic work with the local and global community, it helps them to devote the requisite energy, passion and creativity to their efforts, which promotes accelerated learning. Technology can be used to support the liberal education model and, further, can provided tools to teach more effectively and enhance curricula. Using Web 2.0 tools has allowed my students to bridge academic and non-academic interests, to connect to global partners and collaborators and to engage with online media in real-time.

Meandering Between Curriculum and Website

Gabriel Flacks Teacher, Champlain College - Campus Saint-Lambert

Researching local, provincial, national and international NGOs while teaching in the Humanities department of a cegep, it struck Gabe Flacks that there was a serendipitous connection between a curriculum where students were being asked to write and learn about what they cared about and researching how to foster change in that area. The dynamic relationship between the Internet resources used in his course and the course itself is not linear, they have evolved together and their current iteration is newsactivist.com.
