“Video Selfies” in Class

Published October 27, 2015  |  Mathematics

Charles Laporte Teacher, Collège LaSalle

The idea to suggest to my students that they use their mobile device to make videos came to me while I was presenting the solution to a problem in my Linear Algebra and Vector Geometry class. I wanted to let the students put mathematics operations into their own words, so that they could verbalize what they were thinking and explain the solution while they were doing it. Doing this with a paper-based assignment seemed a bit too laborious. Instead, why not try to use a selfie video (filming themselves)? This also allowed me to touch on one of the higher levels of competency in Bloom’s Taxonomy (we moved from working on matrices to explaining and even analysing these operations while in the process of resolving them).

Big Ideas Facilitating a Shift Toward Distance Learning

Published March 27, 2020  |  Multidisciplinary

John Spencer Teacher, George Fox University

As an education professor, I’ve had the opportunity to help teachers develop online and hybrid courses. One of the most common questions people asked me was, “How do I convert my face-to-face course into an online course?” The truth is, you cannot convert it. Learning isn’t like a file that converts between a .doc and a PDF and a Google Doc. We can’t simply substitute new tools and do the same exact activity. But what if we chose a different approach? What if we asked, “How do I transform my course?” rather than “How do I convert it?” The following are a few ideas to consider as you shift toward online / distance learning.

Teaching with Interactive Videos Thanks to Edpuzzle

Published March 2, 2018  |  Multidisciplinary

Basile Tchize Teacher, Cégep de Saint-Laurent

To diversify my teaching strategies, I use online videos. These explain concepts in a smart way through images and simple demonstrations that facilitate understanding. I use these videos in a flipped classroom approach or as part of a self-directed learning approach. Although I find the content of the videos relevant, I am not always satisfied with the students’ level of engagement. I was introduced to the Edpuzzle platform, which really meets my needs. Here’s why.

Mysterious Moodle: Transforming Teaching and Learning

Published February 8, 2015  |  Multidisciplinary

Orzu Kamolova Moodle Consultant, DECclic

Let’s be honest. Moving to Moodle is not always an easy proposition. Sometimes I overhear teachers saying that it is not intuitive, that it is a big learning curve. I agree with them. At first sight, this course management system may seem a little daunting. However, the more you work with it, the more you understand that there is a certain logic to the platform that allows you to carefully develop your course.

Published April 14, 2020  |  Administration 401

Myriam Laberge Teacher, Cégep Édouard-Montpetit

In 2012, I developed the course Gérer ses finances personnelles (Managing Personal Finances), a complementary course in the general education stream at Cégep Édouard-Montpetit. This course is an introduction to managing personal finances and is intended for students from all backgrounds who do not have any administration courses in their academic program. Since its inception, I have been giving this course in a traditional face-to-face format, combining lectures and discussion periods.

Video Tutorials for Teachers for the Inclusive Use of Smartphones

Published September 27, 2020  |  Multidisciplinary

Profweb Editorial team, Profweb
Anick Legault Teacher, Dawson College

Teachers are sometimes reluctant to use smartphones as a tool for teaching and learning since they can be viewed as a source of distraction in the classroom. The Adaptech Research Network, which performs research on accessible technologies, spearheaded an Entente-Canada-Québec (ECQ) project to share approaches to integrating these omnipresent devices into teaching and learning. In September 2020, Profweb spoke to Anick Legault, a Psychology teacher and Adaptech Research Network Research Associate at Dawson who developed a series of video tutorials within the ECQ project designed to inspire teachers to use smartphones as part of their teaching practice.

3 Platforms to Create Video-Based Tasks that Actively Engage Students

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.
