Published August 10, 2017  |  Multidisciplinary

Laurence Saint-Cyr Proulx Intern and Research Officer at the Living Lab en innovation ouverte, Cégep de Rivière-du-Loup

Have you ever imagined what a school might be like without teachers? No one to tell you when to start, what to write down or when to stop. A school where students progress according to their own pace and motivation, where they will be the principal actor in their development? It might seem like some sort of unrealistic utopia, but the École 42 is hedging its bets on their surprising educational program.

Alexandre Enkerli Educational Advisor, Vitrine technologie-éducation

Part of VTE’s mission is the monitoring of emerging trends bringing pedagogy and technology together. The “quantified learner” is such a trend, related to the broader theme of educational data explored at VTE. Those matters may impact teachers’ work and there are plenty of tricky issues to work through. People in Quebec’s Cegeps monitor this topic while colleges elsewhere in Canada provide training in this field.

This is one of the conclusions of a study by the team of Patrick Giroux, a professor at the Université du Québec à Chicoutimi, on the use of a tablet by approximately 80 students, as part of their high school studies. Most of them are now in CEGEP.

Published November 10, 2016  |  Multidisciplinary

Gina Lavine Coordinator of the Modern Languages Department, Collège Laflèche
Susan MacNeil Editor, Profweb

Having collaborated on past endeavours, we were excited about our latest initiative that would bring together students from different colleges, to work together on a common project. With help from an Entente-Canada-Québec (ECQ) grant, we were able to implement our project – Action Research: Learning Communities in Sustainable Development. The main objectives were to engage students in action research, related to sustainable development, and to participate in a learning community using an Internet based platform. The theme of the project made it very accessible, touching courses from various English second language classes, to geography, humanities, social science, science and more!

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.
