For close to 10 years, I have had the good fortune to work with a number of talented individuals in the college network in Quebec. A handful of them have become something more to me than just people I see in the course of my work. Among these I include Brenda Lamb, the ICT Education Advisor at John Abbott College who has had an enduring impact on both my professional perceptions and my approach to services for the English community in Quebec.

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

Published October 13, 2017  |  Multidisciplinary

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.

Susan MacNeil Editor, Profweb

I joined a webcast on the role of technology in improving generation-Z students’ experience and retention.

An Open Education Resource for Physical Education

Published April 18, 2018  |  Physical Education

Cindy Cook B.Ed. (P.E.) Teacher, Collège LaSalle

The Physical Education department at LaSalle College is small; there are 3 full-time and 4 part-time teachers. When we decided to create our own, tailor-made course materials, several members of the teaching team got on board. It has taken the shape of a digital format textbook, or eBook, which we called Moving Toward the Benefits of Physical Activity. Cindy Cook and Marc Beauchamp did the writing and content-checking, Samantha Haas edited every chapter, and Sylvain Desmarteau did the Word formatting, layout, graphic search, creation and set up of the hosting site (presently a Google site).

Spice Up Your PowerPoints With 2 New Apps

Published May 7, 2018  |  Multidisciplinary

Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

PowerPoint is one of those ubiquitous software programs few tend to laud. We’ve all sat through at least one tedious presentation commonly referred to as “death by PowerPoint.” Yet because of its relative user-friendliness, many teachers still rely on it as part of a lecture or to share content with students. Rather than introducing alternatives to the slideshow format, this article presents 2 applications that work hand-in-hand with PowerPoint to make it a more effective, dynamic and inclusive experience: SlideLizard and Hypersay (which also works with Google Slides).

Active Learning

Jean Desjardins Learning Technology Advisor, Collège Sainte-Anne
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.
