ICT Profile and Digital Badge Experiments

Published March 23, 2017  |  Multidisciplinary

Nicole Perreault REPTIC Community Leader, Fédération des cégeps

The ICT Profile for College Students generated many projects, including two digital badge experiments, which attest mastery of digital skills. The fist took place in a situation of recognition of acquired competencies (RAC) in college; the other in regular day training. The system will be available to all colleges, in the DECclic/Moodle environment: colleges will award ICT Profile Badges to their students. They will also benefit from an institutional space within which they can award their own badges.

Confessions of a Use-driven Consumer of Information Technology

Published October 30, 2007  |  Multidisciplinary

Joanne McCalla takes a no-nonsense approach to information technology in her teaching. Animated by a real need to help her students, she only uses IT when she needs it and only uses what she needs of it. This is one very successful way to use technology and still stay in charge. It reflects Joanne's problem-based approach to teaching which she has outlined in the Journal of Chemical Education and now in our pages.

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.
