Having gone to the conference with the Via Interface, we all agreed that the technology was perfect for our meetings, particularly when it is so inexpensive. I heard that a one hour session may cost as low as five dollars per participant. What a pleasure to see the expressions and body language of the other people on the Animaweb team!

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.
