Living with Technology!

Published February 5, 2007  |  Multidisciplinary

Denis Thibault Editor, Profweb

In a typical Quebec classroom two students arrive for their first class, computer notebooks in hand. The prof lets them attend with the proviso that the computers stay closed. Is the NIMBY ('not in my back yard') phenomenon spreading to the realm of IT integration in the college classroom? How can technology learn to live comfortably with pedagogy?

Back to the future – Zenome recreates the collegial library on-line

Published January 29, 2007  |  Multidisciplinary

Zsolt Szigetvari Teacher, Dawson College

Inspired by the venerable card catalogues in libraries of yesteryear, Zsolt Szigetvari, a media studies teacher at Dawson College, has created a way to make browsing on the web less like a popularity contest. An experienced on-line teacher, he has taken the fruits of his experience with on-line courses and built a site called ‘Zenome’, which is an on-line directory that organizes material by communities of interest. For example, Zenome links students of urban design researching the topic of Paris to material on Notre Dame Cathedral and not to news about Paris Hilton. He calls his idea ‘a directory of communities’. In such a community, like minded people, real people, work together to evaluate resources on the web that relate to a subject of common interest.

When today becomes tomorrow!

Published January 22, 2007  |  Multidisciplinary

Norm Spatz Editor (retired), Profweb

This week, at our editorial meeting, we had a shining example of the value of the APOP U R on-Line Conference. The meeting was held using the Via Interface. 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!

The internet gives us access to vast free video resources. Yet in spite of these technological innovations, students still consume digital media mostly passively in classroom settings.

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.
