3D-print Technology for Smartphone-based Physics Experiments

Chris Isaac Larnder Teacher, Cégep John Abbott College

I’m not that great at building things, which, I guess, is why I ended up being a physicist and not an engineer. As previously reported on Profweb, I have been running accelerometer experiments with smartphones to help my students learn physics concepts through digital-era equivalents of “real world” examples. With the help of students, we developed 3D-printed equipment to make these experiments more accessible to our growing network of teachers outside of our college.

A Collaborative Program-based Approach Supported by Technology

Mélanie Langlois-Sabourin Teacher, Cégep de l'Outaouais
Denis Lavoie Teacher, Cégep de l'Outaouais

While he was the person responsible for the course Integrated Placement (Stage d’intégration), offered as part of the 5th semester in the Electrotechnology program, Denis noticed that students had some training gaps in communication, even though this was included within the program objectives. In their placement term reports, the students had to describe 3 problematic situations. Communication skills were a recurring theme. To counteract this difficulty, Denis started integrating some communication theory into his course in order to better prepare his students.

A Devil’s Advocate for IT

Judith Findlay Teacher, Cégep John Abbott College

The Nursing Department at John Abbott College is now using two nursing simulators or manikins as part of a program to encourage the use of information technology. The hardware, however, is only part of the equation. Teachers need institutional support to adapt to the changes that are happening around them.

A Different Sense of Moodle

Rajesh Malik Teacher, Dawson College

Rajesh Malik hasn’t let blindness interfere with his teaching. Prior to the age of computers and the internet, he used standard techniques of lecturing and showed videos on VHS, but as the computer took over classrooms, he used more multi-media devices and, of course computers. As well, certain software made his life easier.

A Digital Laboratory Notebook Within Moodle

Josée Debigaré Teacher, Cégep de Lévis

The laboratory notebook is indispensable within many scientific disciplines, as it constitutes the "memory of an experiment." The content is traditionally written by hand in a spiral-bound notebook. The observations,  measurements, calculations and results are recorded in a chronological and permanent fashion in the notebook. With the development of computing and the widespread use of digital tools, the laboratory notebooks are, little by little, transforming into scrapbooks.
