ClassCraft and My Quest for Student Engagement

Published November 10, 2015  |  Multidisciplinary

Lisa Deguire Teacher, Cégep de Jonquière

I like to stay abreast of new technologies, and gamification is an aspect I have wanted to integrate into my English Second Language classes for some time now. I am not a gamer but I have lived with gamers so I am very familiar with the allure of the very popular Massive Multi Online Role Play Games. (MMROPG’s). Like many teachers I dream of seeing my students as attracted to, interested in, and excited about their ESL class content as I am. Unfortunately, most games I came across and could integrate into my planning fell short of my needs or were difficult to adapt to the ESL classroom. Then I discovered Classcraft!

Transition to Electronic Marking with iAnnotate

Published February 13, 2017  |  Multidisciplinary

Angie Stevens Editor, Profweb

Are you feeling ready to make the move to correcting assignments electronically? Are you overwhelmed by the number of tools that exist? This article will explain one teacher’s experience with an application she has been using for several years. Anna Dera, a Biology Teacher at CEGEP Champlain St. Lawrence wanted a tool that made the transition to marking electronically simple; something that allowed her to continue writing notes, “by hand”. She began marking electronically on a laptop with a touch screen and a special stylus pen. Soon after, she started using an iPad, and in her search for an application that would allow her to continue this new electronic marking technique, she discovered iAnnotate, which has remained her marking tool of choice for over 6 years.

Moodle Platform Moderating the CERAC Community of Practice

Published November 30, 2014  |  Multidisciplinary

Orzu Kamolova Moodle Consultant, DECclic
Audrey Corbeil Editor, Profweb
Michel Cloutier Educational Advisor, CERAC Drummondville

At the Sommet sur l’Enseignement supérieur, in February 2013, it was announced that four CERACs (Centre d’expertise en reconnaissance des acquis et des compétences) would be created within the college network. The CEGEPs awarded a CERAC were: Cégep de Drummondville, Cégep de Ste-Foy, Cégep Marie-Victorin and Champlain Regional College. Over the last year, my colleagues and I have worked to design and develop a virtual space for communication and collaboration between these centers using Moodle (LMS). The goal was to create and support an online community of practice. The platform provides a space to bring together hundreds of pedagogical advisors in Recognition of Acquired Competencies (RAC), nearly twenty employees of the four CERACs and representatives from MESRS (Ministère de l’Enseignement supérieur, de la Recherche et de la Science).

Published September 25, 2017  |  Multidisciplinary

Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

Communication is one of 5 common competencies developed throughout CEGEP education. College students turn in written work in most, if not all, of their courses. Thus, to hone their writing skills, they need sustained support across classes. Training students on the concept of readability may help them become more mindful and effective readers and writers.

Dr Laurence Nixon, Dawson College

While interviewing Lawrence Nixon about his use of the Shared Drive at Dawson College, he mentioned the document we are reproducing below on plagiarism.

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.
