Worldchat.live: Let Your Students Do The Talking!

Published April 23, 2020  |  Languages and Literature

Anne-Marie Lafortune Teacher, Cégep de la Gaspésie et des Îles

Imagine connecting with a second language teacher from around the world to design a speaking activity for your students. This is exactly what Worldchat.live, an Internet platform, does: it gives your English Second Language (ESL ) students the opportunity to actually speak and do the activity that was developed with that teacher’s ESL students. For example, Francophone students from the Cégep de la Gaspésie et des Îles de la Madeleine (CGIM) could chat in English with students from Indonesia. This stimulating pedagogical approach encourages the use of English language in an authentic context. Other language matches will be possible as well. Thanks to a grant from the Entente Canada-Quebec (ECQ) this platform is being developed and will be available as of Fall 2020.

Active Learning

Jean Desjardins Educational Advisor, Cégep du Vieux Montréal
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.
