eLearning@Dawson College

Published November 2, 2014  |  Multidisciplinary

Norm Spatz Editor (retired), Profweb

Should eLearning@Dawson be the subject of an article or be considered a digital tool? I first got wind of the concept when I interviewed Chantale Giguère for a real-life story in Profweb. The story was largely a listing of the many features that she had incorporated into her courses. Although we didn’t specifically mention the idea of creating an online site for teachers using eLearning, the contents of her story reflected her interests in transmitting what she had learned in developing her own virtual pedagogy to other teachers. eLearning@Dawson is in many ways a more developed expression of the interests that Chantale described in her Profweb article, and I feel, speaks to her general motivation to give teachers a helping hand with technology.

Zoom vs Teams: a Choice to Make?

Published August 24, 2020  |  Multidisciplinary

Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

In the Winter 2020 semester, as teachers started moving classes online for emergency remote teaching, Zoom became a household name. In response, over the past few months Microsoft has expanded the possibilities of its Teams platform, part of the Microsoft 365 suite of tools. Which platform is best-suited for synchronous videoconferencing-based classes, whether part of an online-only or hybrid teaching strategy? And is it necessary to choose between one or the other? This article explores a few considerations and answers.

YouTube in the Classroom

Published March 13, 2019  |  Multidisciplinary

Susan MacNeil Editor, Profweb

GenZers and Millenials use YouTube recreationally, but many are now using it to learn. They find it easier to understand something when they can watch a demonstration of the skill. They also like the fact that they can rewind and watch the demonstration as many times as necessary without having the feeling that they are inconveniencing anyone. Think of the trend of video-game walkthroughs where video game players film themselves playing a game and comment as they progress through the game. The new gamers learn all the tricks by watching more experienced gamers play.

Worldchat.live: Let Your Students Do The Talking!

Published April 23, 2020  |  Languages and Literature

Anne-Marie Lafortune Teacher, Cégep de la Gaspésie et des Îles

Imagine connecting with a second language teacher from around the world to design a speaking activity for your students. This is exactly what Worldchat.live, an Internet platform, does: it gives your English Second Language (ESL ) students the opportunity to actually speak and do the activity that was developed with that teacher’s ESL students. For example, Francophone students from the Cégep de la Gaspésie et des Îles de la Madeleine (CGIM) could chat in English with students from Indonesia. This stimulating pedagogical approach encourages the use of English language in an authentic context. Other language matches will be possible as well. Thanks to a grant from the Entente Canada-Quebec (ECQ) this platform is being developed and will be available as of Fall 2020.

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. Three free online platforms allow you to create different types of video-based tasks that engage your students more actively.

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.
