Fostering Interactivity in the Classroom in an Intuitive Manner with Wooclap

Published May 3, 2019  |  Multidisciplinary

François Simard Teacher, Cégep de Saint-Jérôme

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.

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.
