When today becomes tomorrow!

Published January 22, 2007  |  Multidisciplinary

Norm Spatz Editor (retired), Profweb

This week, at our editorial meeting, we had a shining example of the value of the APOP U R on-Line Conference. The meeting was held using the Via Interface. Having gone to the conference with the Via Interface, we all agreed that the technology was perfect for our meetings, particularly when it is so inexpensive. I heard that a one hour session may cost as low as five dollars per participant. What a pleasure to see the expressions and body language of the other people on the Animaweb team!

Using Visual Storytelling to Explore Distressing Topics in the College Classroom

Published October 22, 2019  |  Multidisciplinary

Daniel Goldsmith Teacher, Dawson College

How do you speak about trauma without it becoming too personal? How do you provide support to a student whose painful memories and emotions might be triggered by such a discussion? An ECQ grant (Entente Canada-Quebec) in 2018-2019 allowed Mark McGuire at John Abbott College and I to develop a website presenting pedagogical materials using visual storytelling as a means of dealing with disturbing topics.

Fostering Interactivity in the Classroom in an Intuitive Manner with Wooclap

Published May 3, 2019  |  Multidisciplinary

François Simard Teacher, Cégep de Saint-Jérôme

Out of personal interest, I'm always on the lookout for new technopedagogical tools. To make my research easier in this constantly evolving field, I subscribe to several news feeds. This is how I discovered, a while ago, the keyword “audience response system,” associated with a tool that had captured my interest. Using this keyword in the search engine of my browser, I discovered several applications offering variations on the functionality of Mentimeter, Slido and Pear Deck, tools that I had already tried. It's Wooclap, which is designed specifically for higher education and offers a French-language interface, that caught my attention.

New Quiz Feature in Google Forms

Published March 28, 2017  |  Multidisciplinary

Dominic Fournier Teacher, Champlain College - Saint Lawrence

I have been an avid user of Google Forms for several years and I was pleasantly surprised to find a new feature added to the app. Google Forms has become one of the favorite tools I use for many of my courses. I not only use it for quizzes and surveys, but also for team project registration and topic selection, receiving internship information from students, and receiving online assignments, to name a few. Although I have tried other applications, I keep coming back to Google Forms for the ease with which other software and applications integrate into it and because it is free for my students, my college and myself.

Making college research pay off

Published April 2, 2007  | 

Luc Desautels Teacher, Cégep régional de Lanaudière - Terrebonne

It is common knowledge that expenses associated with research are enormous. Everyone involved in research — the people conducting it, the institutions making a living from it, even the companies supporting it — are all too often stung by its costs. On the personal level, should employees of both community colleges and college technology transfer centres consider research as a lifelong means of furthering their training? Is it worth the cost?

Reformed by the Reform

Published September 7, 2009  |  English (Second Language)

Patti Holter Teacher, Collège Lionel-Groulx

Facing the dilemma of how to respect course criteria which stipulated vocabulary and texts that target students' individual programs and career choices when each class had students from many programs, I turned to tools like Moodle. I've made the surprising discovery that Moodle makes it easier for me to spend more time on pedagogy. In spite of the limited number of times we see them in class and their busy lives outside of the classroom, I am reaching out to students through IT!

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.
