H5P: A Tool for Gamifying Learning

Published August 16, 2019  |  Multidisciplinary

Catherine Rhéaume Editor, Profweb

In April of 2019, the VTÉ (Vitrine technologie-éducation) organized a laboratory entitled Innovative Pedagogy: Play, Gamification and Serious Games in Service of Seriously Motivating Lessons! (La pédagogie innovante: le jeu, la ludification et les jeux sérieux au service d’apprentissages sérieusement motivants!) During the laboratory, all kinds of ways to gamify learning were discussed, including the use of a web-based tool named H5P that integrates well with Moodle. H5P allows you to create a remarkable variety of attractive and fun interactive exercises. This on-line tool has proven its worth, notably amongst the “francization” teachers at Collège de Bois-de-Boulogne.

Using LEGO to Learn About the Agile Approach in Computer Science

Published August 15, 2019  |  Electronic Data-processing

Catherine Rhéaume Editor, Profweb

In April of 2019, the VTÉ (Vitrine technologie-éducation) organized a laboratory entitled Innovative Pedagogy: Play, Gamification and Serious Games in Service of Seriously Motivating Lessons! (La pédagogie innovante: le jeu, la ludification et les jeux sérieux au service d’apprentissages sérieusement motivants!) During the laboratory, there was definitely an emphasis on technological tools, but I will be focusing here on a "low-tech" way of gamifying in a domain which is, without question, very technological: computer science. See how Stéphane Lévesque, a teacher in software engineering, uses LEGO to initiate his students to the Agile methodology (a project management methodology for teams which is prevalent in business).

Immersive Digital ‘Pre-labs’ with Panoramic 360 Degree Pedagogical Videos

Published June 5, 2019  |  Multidisciplinary

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb

The digital frontier affords many opportunities for approaching educational and institutional constraints with creative solutions. Roger Maclean at John Abbott College has started to address certain organizational challenges to teaching by using panoramic 360 degree videos to allow students to immerse themselves in a virtual environment for learning. I recently sat down with Roger, who assures me that the barriers to entry have never been fewer than now for teachers to try out 360 degree immersive video technology.

Harnessing the Power of IA to Help Students Become Better Readers with Quillionz

Published May 23, 2019  |  Multidisciplinary

Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

Effective and critical reading is a key skill in any field. Even if you do not explicitly teach reading strategies and skills, chances are your students have to engage with written content in a multitude of ways (course notes, mandatory readings, research, etc.). In order to get the most out of the documents they are asked to read, students often need guidance to identify important information and to understand why it is useful. In an educational context where time is often a luxury for students and teachers alike, Quillionz, a platform using the power of artificial intelligence (AI) to generate comprehension questions from a text, can efficiently help you provide such guidance.

A World Wide Web: Engaging Learners Online

Published May 20, 2019  |  English (Second Language)

Linda Manimtim, M.Ed., Red River College, Winnipeg MB and EAL Specialist, PEG Canada

In this digital age, information is available to our students at the click of a Google search. They have access to amazing tools as well as unreliable information at the touch of a finger. As instructors, we have the opportunity to help guide this rushing river of data to benefit our students and ourselves. They’re online at home, on the bus, while they’re eating, while they watch TV, while they socialize, and sometimes while they are in class. So, why not take advantage of this almost natural proclivity, and make use of it for educational purposes?

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.
