OneNote: Office 365’s Virtual Notebook

Published April 7, 2017  |  Multidisciplinary

Angie Stevens Editor, Profweb

Having had access to the Office 365 suite of applications for a few years now, I have slowly been exploring the potential uses of these tools. This semester I found myself searching for a way to organize and centralize information for the various projects and committees and I am involved in. A colleague at Champlain-St. Lawrence presented OneNote in a pedagogical activity in early March 2017, so I decided to give it a try. It is beginning to replace the paper notebook I usually carry with me to meetings, committee work, and interviews, giving me a virtual place to store and organize notes from daily life.

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.

Active Learning

Jean Desjardins Educational Advisor, Cégep du Vieux Montréal
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.
