Second Language Adventure Tourism

Published October 5, 2014  |  Multidisciplinary

Gina Lavine Coordinator of the Modern Languages Department, Collège Laflèche

International Baccalaureate (IB) students are generally motivated or they would not have chosen to go into such an intensive program. I wanted to give these students an experience where they would be working on their own, at their own pace and speaking with authentic Anglophones, a rarity in Trois-Rivières in order to deal with the multiplicity of language skills in my IB class. I knew that the Entente Canada-Quebec could provide a grant which would enable an actual immersion trip. All manner of information technology including Facebook and chat as well as a willing partner in a French as Second Language course at Cégep de Gaspésie des Îles made for a great way to realize these goals.

Sharing Content Efficiently with Mind Maps

Published October 15, 2018  |  Multidisciplinary

Simon Côté-Massicotte Editor, Profweb

If you teach in the Québec college system, chances are that you work with Omnivox. While MIO and LÉA are excellent for communicating with students quickly and easily, they are sub-optimal when it comes to sharing large quantities material. Luckily for teachers, there are ways to work around Omnivox’ cumbersome system, for instance, with the use of mind maps. Mindmeister, a web-based mind mapping application, provides a user-friendly interface to create efficient and aesthetically pleasing mind maps to share an infinite quantity of pedagogical resources from one link.

Creating More Accessibility to Classroom Content

Published October 12, 2014  |  Multidisciplinary

Anika Maloni Teacher, Centennial College

At Centennial we are moving toward Universal Design in Learning (UDL) and that framework is becoming more and more prominent in our pedagogical activities. The premise of UDL is that is that we give students as much accessibility to the course content and the school structure as possible. Creating maximum accessibility clearly involves the integration of certain technological tools that we have not been using or that we were maybe reluctant in the past to try, but that push toward UDL or Universal Design really has become the driving force for change.

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.
