Game Thinking as a Strategy to Promote Deep Learning in Any Field

Published November 20, 2017  | 

Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

While observing my students in Cégep Limoilou’s Video Game Design program, I noticed their ability to mobilize a specific skill set comprising critical analysis, problem solving and creativity. As I built the generic course plan for a new course, English for Video Game Design II, I included a gamification project to specifically hone these skills, often referred to as game thinking. After testing this approach with my students in the fall 2017 term, I am convinced it can benefit students in virtually any program.

Published August 21, 2017  |  Multidisciplinary

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb

Within the Do-It-Yourself and Maker movements people are encouraged to tinker with building objects and playing with microcontrollers in order to interact with their creations. The movement seeks to integrate people from across disciplines, getting them interested in how things work and using this knowledge to problem-solve in innovative ways. Prior to the Summer 2017 break, LEARN Quebec held an event designed to initiate educators from different levels of academia into the world of microcontrollers as a pretext to harnessing the technology for pedagogical ends. What follows is a summary of the event, followed by information about the next event which will take place in September 2017.

Doing PD Differently: A Conversation with Avi Spector from the RÉCIT Network

Published September 13, 2017  |  Multidisciplinary

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb

The fall is upon us and many IT-REPs and REPTICs in the college network are back in the swing of things, supporting individual teachers who are trying new approaches and technologies in their classrooms. Many have also begun preparing for upcoming ped days - thinking about how to provide professional development (PD) opportunities for faculty that will have a positive impact on their respective college. I recently had the opportunity to meet with Avi Spector from Quebec’s RÉCIT network and asked him about his approach to working with teachers. The approach he is currently using can be an inspiration for us all.

Published November 16, 2015  |  Multidisciplinary

Benoit Bolduc AQPC Symposia Coordinator, AQPC

Are you implementing new methods of teaching and learning or experimenting with new tools (technological or otherwise) in order to help students to acquire their competencies? Are you designing activities to develop the discernment of your students or foster their participation as active members of society? Are you leading a research project or taking action to ensure the education of the ‘whole person’ within your program of studies, in your courses or as part of the services that you are providing to students? Are you seeking to understand the importance of physical attendance of students in a digital world, as much for their studies as for their citizenship? If so, we would like to hear from you at the 36th Annual Symposium of the Association québécoise de pédagogie collégiale (AQPC).

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.

Social media are the efforts from online collaboration to build a collective intelligence. Although our role as a teacher is not necessarily to use wikis or Twitter, it behooves us to at least understand the technological environment in which our students are evolving.

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 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.
