Information technology is not as essential to teaching an application such as Maya, a complex 3D software using animation, modeling and dynamics, as one would think, but sophisticated software such as this is acquiring a role in social media outside of the classroom.

Instagram: A Social Media Tool for The College Classroom

Published October 25, 2018  |  Multidisciplinary

Susan MacNeil Editor, Profweb

A picture is worth a thousand words as the old saying goes, but with more than 400 million users, half of which are under 30, the photo sharing platform Instagram can be worth a lot more than a thousand words if you are a teacher. Instagram is the mobile app that allows users to share the pictures or videos they have taken. In class, Instagram offers a visual alternative to students who are often overloaded with texts. In an anatomy class for example, isn’t it easier for student students to learn about the structure of a bone from a picture rather than a long description?

Getting Second Language Students Talking Together with Social Media

Published March 30, 2015  |  English (Second Language)

Gina Lavine Coordinator of the Modern Languages Department, Collège Laflèche

As I previously observed on Profweb, getting second language students to communicate in English can be a challenge, since they are often uncomfortable speaking in front of their peers - especially at the 604-101-level. Recently, my colleagues and I have come up with a great way to break the ice and to get my students to use the English language using social media.

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.

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.
