Connecting Classrooms Across the Border with Technology

Published November 2, 2014  |  Multidisciplinary

John E. Fowler Assistant Director, SUNY COIL Center

Knowledge comes from many sources and through a wide range of human experience. In today’s increasingly interconnected world, internationalization and globalization link the local to the global, multiplying the sources of knowledge and making intercultural interactions an increasingly significant aspect of our professional and personal lives. Today’s students not only need to have access to knowledge, but must also be equipped to understand the many contexts and cultural points of view that give meaning to what they know in order to apply their knowledge effectively and sensitively. For that reason, cross-cultural competence has become a key skill in the 21st Century.

Zotero – A New Paradigm for Citation

Published December 7, 2014  |  Multidisciplinary

Denis Côté Teacher, Champlain College - Saint Lawrence
Daniel Perreault Teacher, Champlain College - Saint Lawrence

Five years ago, when Denis saw that Zotero was free and developed by a university, he realized that it was not like a lot of software that comes from a start-up company where you don’t know whether it’s going to be there in two years or whether they have a bare bones free version, and then you have to pay for full service. He also thought that the way that it was designed as a plugin in Firefox was the way to go! It’s really easy. With just one or two clicks, you get your references in. And you have a choice of referencing styles, as well as an integration with Word! He started to use it to collect some of his references in his courses. And then at a Social Sciences Department meeting one day, he talked about it and realized that our students should all begin to use it!

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.

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. Three free online platforms allow you to create different types of video-based tasks that engage your students more actively.

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.
