Published August 30, 2020  |  Multidisciplinary

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb

Profweb Editorial team alumnus and retired teacher Norm Spatz was called back to the classroom during the Winter 2020 semester. Like many other teachers, his class was thrown a curveball by the worldwide health emergency. When the semester resumed, Norm retooled for distance delivery by using his course website and started recording breakout room activities to get his English as a Second Language students talking again. I sat down with Norm prior to the Autumn 2020 semester to hear more about his experience.

Video Tutorials for Teachers for the Inclusive Use of Smartphones

Published September 27, 2020  |  Multidisciplinary

Profweb Editorial team, Profweb
Anick Legault Teacher, Dawson College

Teachers are sometimes reluctant to use smartphones as a tool for teaching and learning since they can be viewed as a source of distraction in the classroom. The Adaptech Research Network, which performs research on accessible technologies, spearheaded an Entente-Canada-Québec (ECQ) project to share approaches to integrating these omnipresent devices into teaching and learning. In September 2020, Profweb spoke to Anick Legault, a Psychology teacher and Adaptech Research Network Research Associate at Dawson who developed a series of video tutorials within the ECQ project designed to inspire teachers to use smartphones as part of their teaching practice.

Articles and Real Life Stories to Read (or Read Again) before the Winter Semester Begins

Published January 10, 2017  |  Multidisciplinary

Angie Stevens Editor, Profweb

It is not always easy to find the time, in the middle of the semester, to read all of the new articles from Profweb attentively and to integrate new practices inspired by your colleagues in the college network. I am therefore suggesting that you take a second look at 6 publications put online during the second half of the fall semester 2016.

Empowering Students with Liberal Education and Technology

Published January 11, 2017  |  Multidisciplinary

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.

Making: Tooling Up to Teach and Collaborate

Published January 26, 2016  |  Multidisciplinary

Christophe Reverd Learning Technology Advisor, Vitrine technologie-éducation

In the past, the Vitrine Technologie-Éducation has taken an interest in the potential of the Maker movement (Fab Labs) in the CEGEPs. Two projects, one at Collège Bois-de-Boulogne and the other at Champlain Saint-Lambert, were initiated to begin experimenting. Today, two more areas of ‘making’ are garnering more and more interest, namely robotics and programming (the latter brings the former to life). I would argue that both fields can be considered pretexts for developing our reflexes to collaborate and share expertise more with each other.

Farewell NewsActivist: Introducing linkr

Published June 1, 2018  |  Multidisciplinary

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb

The world of education technology is one of continual renewal. I recently had the opportunity to catch up with Humanities teacher Gabriel Flacks to talk about the development of a new platform called linkr, which is the natural successor to his well-received NewsActivist learning community platform. The new website offers greater functionality and creates networked learning opportunities for students through a social medium for the collaborative development of content, related to current events and contemporary issues.

linkr: Student Interaction and Collaboration without Boundaries

Published August 16, 2018  |  Multidisciplinary

Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

Active learning, distance learning, and personalized learning (whether or not integrated in a flipped or blended learning approach) are pedagogical methods that need little to no introduction. The opportunities and benefits they offer have been documented in many a Profweb article or real-life story over the yearslinkr, a teaching platform and global network of teachers and students, takes these concepts to the next level while making them easy for teachers to integrate into curricula. Cofounded by Humanities teacher Gabriel Flacks (Champlain College St-Lambert) and partners Gregory Mattei, Antoine Ricquebourg and Pierre-Olivier Bonin, linkr harnesses the power of technology to remove the physical boundaries between students and teachers around the world.

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 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.
