Creating a Personal Digital Learning Environment

Published March 6, 2011  |  Chemistry

David Adley Teacher (retired), Dawson College

You know the students that you’ve seen in your classes who are there in body but not in spirit and who don’t bother to take notes. These days, among the living dead, there are the ones who are depending on the SmartBoard because in my classes, they know that what was put on the board will be available to them later on. There are still some students, however, who are taking notes.

Immersive Digital ‘Pre-labs’ with Panoramic 360 Degree Pedagogical Videos

Published June 5, 2019  |  Multidisciplinary

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb

The digital frontier affords many opportunities for approaching educational and institutional constraints with creative solutions. Roger Maclean at John Abbott College has started to address certain organizational challenges to teaching by using panoramic 360 degree videos to allow students to immerse themselves in a virtual environment for learning. I recently sat down with Roger, who assures me that the barriers to entry have never been fewer than now for teachers to try out 360 degree immersive video technology.

Experiential Learning and Digital Storytelling: A Powerful Duo

Published February 6, 2017  |  Multidisciplinary

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb

Experiential learning is a means of moving from theory to application which allows for a fair amount of student discovery and serendipity to take place. Digital storytelling is a way for students to record, report or even be evaluated on their learning using modern technologies. The millennials, who are sometimes referred to as Generation C (and have a penchant for Creating, Collaborating and Communicating) seem enthusiastic about using mobile devices and technology. When students share what they learn through multimedia, they can even transport us to remote First Nations communities, providing us insight on places that we may never have the privilege to visit within our lifetimes. The result of combining their experiential learning with digital storytelling is most inspiring!

A Practical Ecological On-Line Textbook

Published October 5, 2008  |  Special Care Counselling

François Simard Teacher, Cégep de Saint-Jérôme

In order to increase students' laboratory time and consequently their success in my course, an on-line textbook (manuel-guide virtuel) or OLT is being tested for the second year. The multimedia capability of the internet has facilitated the mastery of theoretical concepts, and the project has proved to be easy, practical and stimulating. The virtual nature of the medium reduces paper use as well.

Creating Digital Course Notes to Make Learning Easier

Published October 22, 2018  |  Physics

Luc Tremblay Teacher, Collège Mérici

After some 15 years of teaching, I decided to create my own course notes. I used Word (with MathType) for the writing, and saved the files as PDF. I used PaintShop Pro to create the figures. I integrated clickable hyperlinks in my notes, which gives them a an added value when read in their digital format, but they can also be used in a printed format. Besides, that is what students prefer to do. My notes are online on my site, La physique à Mérici (resource in French only), and are accessible to all.

Digital Presentations

Published December 8, 2015  |  Multidisciplinary

Profweb Editorial team, Profweb

For many teachers, their first foray towards integrating Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) into their pedagogical practice comes through the use of digital presentation software (such as Microsoft PowerPoint) as a visual support for their lectures. Nowadays, these digital slideshows are undoubtedly the most common technology in college-level classrooms. This tool has become the norm and teachers who do not use it are becoming few and far between. Presentation software such as PowerPoint, Apple Keynote, LibreOffice Impress and Prezi all have interesting features (with the last two being freely available over the Internet). That said, they also contain shortcomings and traps that should be avoided. This in-depth report presents various uses of presentation software in class along with tips and advice for using slideshows within an educational context.

Published April 15, 2019  |  Multidisciplinary

Caroline Demers Teacher, Cégep Garneau

The Office 365 OneNote Class Notebook is my favorite online tool for distributing course content as it greatly facilitates note taking and includes the Immersive Reader, which is a great tool for eliminating difficulties related to screen-based reading. By integrating my class notebook into the Office 365 Teams application, I have developed a very comprehensive collaborative and structured learning environment allowing all tasks to be completed in one place.

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 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.
