Published March 30, 2014  |  Chemistry

Michael Lautman Teacher, Cégep John Abbott College

How do you learn if you don’t do something wrong? If you’re a research scientist, 95% of the things you do are wrong. You celebrate those tiny little bits that you get right. Technology provides opportunities for students to learn from their mistakes safely. The true wisdom for the teacher is discovering what students don’t know in order to guide them to knowledge.

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.
