ClassCraft and My Quest for Student Engagement

Published November 10, 2015  |  Multidisciplinary

Lisa Deguire Teacher, Cégep de Jonquière

I like to stay abreast of new technologies, and gamification is an aspect I have wanted to integrate into my English Second Language classes for some time now. I am not a gamer but I have lived with gamers so I am very familiar with the allure of the very popular Massive Multi Online Role Play Games. (MMROPG’s). Like many teachers I dream of seeing my students as attracted to, interested in, and excited about their ESL class content as I am. Unfortunately, most games I came across and could integrate into my planning fell short of my needs or were difficult to adapt to the ESL classroom. Then I discovered Classcraft!

Audio Feedback To Give Meaning To Marking

Published November 17, 2017  |  French (Language and Literature)

Jean-François Legault Teacher, Collège de Valleyfield

To mark my students’ essays, I have turned to giving audio feedback. I can see real benefits in this for both my students and me. It gives a lot more meaning to grading. In audio mode the number of detailed comments that can be left increases dramatically when compared to written comments. The number of grade reviews in my classes has also decreased significantly since I have been using this method.

Published March 1, 2019  |  Physics

Susan MacNeil Editor, Profweb

Behi Fatholahzadeh has taught Physics at Marianopolis College for 7 years. She admits that she never really liked the idea of going before the class right before the mid-term exam and somehow summarizing the entire content then taking 3 questions. She was looking to be more effective with the mid-term review classes. At the PeerWise worshop at Saltise in 2018 (the object of an article in Profweb), she discovered a tool that might be able to help.

Confessions of a Use-driven Consumer of Information Technology

Published October 30, 2007  |  Multidisciplinary

Joanne McCalla Teacher, Champlain College - Saint Lawrence

Joanne McCalla takes a no-nonsense approach to information technology in her teaching. Animated by a real need to help her students, she only uses IT when she needs it and only uses what she needs of it. This is one very successful way to use technology and still stay in charge. It reflects Joanne's problem-based approach to teaching which she has outlined in the Journal of Chemical Education and now in our pages.

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.
