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.

Here’s why.

Active Learning

Published September 3, 2018  |  Multidisciplinary

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.

Schoology: an LMS that Truly Connects You with Your Students

Published November 19, 2018  |  Multidisciplinary

Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

In the digital era, learning management systems (LMS) have become a central part of our educational practices. Whether you send an electronic message to a student, post grades online, share a homework assignment in the cloud, or set up a web-based activity, chances are you use an LMS to accomplish this. With such a variety of tasks on offer, clearly no two learning management systems are the same. Schoology is an LMS with a strong emphasis on communication and collaboration, making it particularly useful for use with non-traditional course formats (active or flipped approaches, blended learning, distance teaching, etc.).
