Evernote and Teaching

Published September 21, 2014  |  Chemistry

Carole Emilie Baddour, PhD Teacher, Collégial international Sainte-Anne

Like all addictions, it started innocently. I heard so much talk about Evernote from others, that my journey simply began out of curiosity. I wanted to know for myself what it was and how to use it. A few years ago, I started using Evernote for my personal affairs and I fell in love. It was such a powerful organizational tool and I was hooked. Evernote allowed me to have everything I could possibly need (such as documents, audio files, annotations and website clippings) stored in once place and synced across every device I used. I loved Evernote so much in my personal life that I decided to bring it into my chemistry classes.

Videoconferencing to Build Bridges Between Student Communities

Published February 20, 2020  |  English (Second Language)

Muna Shafiq Teacher, Cégep Limoilou

In 2017 and 2018, I organized 2 very successful trips to Vancouver with my students, enrolled in the Language profile of Cégep Limoilou’s Arts, Letters and Communication program. Because this type of cultural exchange adds great value to the career path of our students, but also to that of students in British Columbia, in the fall 2019 semester, I organized a virtual encounter to continue forging ties between these young people living on both sides of the country.

Published January 27, 2013  |  Electronic Data-processing

Allan R. McDonald Teacher, Heritage College

Allan McDonald feels we have to show students how to find information because in the computer science industry, one can’t know everything. As long as he can be the geek who lets them seek out their own answers, Allan feels he is giving his students the information they need to succeed.

Using Factile to Make Engaging Review Sessions

Published April 16, 2018  |  English (Second Language)

Simon Côté-Massicotte Editor, Profweb

Keeping students focused and motivated is a constant challenge for teachers, especially in classes where a lot of the material has to be learnt by heart. An effective way to address that issue is to turn review sessions into games: the informal context allows students to relax and the friendly competition keeps them motivated. The web-based application, Factile, which I have used in my English for Adventure Tourism class, allows you to turn your classroom into the set of Jeopardy and make your review sessions efficient and entertaining.

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.
