Student Facebook Pages - A New Agenda in the Classroom

Published December 4, 2011  |  Multidisciplinary

Maggie McDonnell Teacher, Vanier College

Maggie McDonnell discovered that her Liberal Arts students had started a program specific Facebook page even before they entered college. Some students felt that the Facebook page was a more reliable way of staying on schedule with their homework than an agenda and that the Facebook page was an excellent way of catching up after missing one or several classes or getting additional information about concepts not totally mastered in the classroom.

Spice Up Your PowerPoints With 2 New Apps

Published May 7, 2018  |  Multidisciplinary

Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

PowerPoint is one of those ubiquitous software programs few tend to laud. We’ve all sat through at least one tedious presentation commonly referred to as “death by PowerPoint.” Yet because of its relative user-friendliness, many teachers still rely on it as part of a lecture or to share content with students. Rather than introducing alternatives to the slideshow format, this article presents 2 applications that work hand-in-hand with PowerPoint to make it a more effective, dynamic and inclusive experience: SlideLizard and Hypersay (which also works with Google Slides).

It is not always easy to find the time, in the middle of the semester, to read all of the new articles from Profweb attentively and to integrate new practices inspired by your colleagues in the college network.

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.

Zotero – A New Paradigm for Citation

Published December 7, 2014  |  Multidisciplinary

Denis Côté Teacher, Champlain College - Saint Lawrence
Daniel Perreault Teacher, Champlain College - Saint Lawrence

Five years ago, when Denis saw that Zotero was free and developed by a university, he realized that it was not like a lot of software that comes from a start-up company where you don’t know whether it’s going to be there in two years or whether they have a bare bones free version, and then you have to pay for full service. He also thought that the way that it was designed as a plugin in Firefox was the way to go! It’s really easy. With just one or two clicks, you get your references in. And you have a choice of referencing styles, as well as an integration with Word! He started to use it to collect some of his references in his courses. And then at a Social Sciences Department meeting one day, he talked about it and realized that our students should all begin to use it!

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.

Teachers’ Use of ICTs: What Do Students Think?

This survey allowed the researchers to collect data on the teachers’ use of technology as well as the students’ level of satisfaction regarding this use.
