Create Gamified Interactive Reviews with Wordwall

However, the novelty effect of such audience response systems tends to wear off rapidly. Wordwall represents a worthwhile complementary offering, as the platform contains a wide selection of mini-games that can be used to review theory, concepts and vocabulary items.

Harnessing the Power of IA to Help Students Become Better Readers with Quillionz

Published May 23, 2019  |  Multidisciplinary

Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

Effective and critical reading is a key skill in any field. Even if you do not explicitly teach reading strategies and skills, chances are your students have to engage with written content in a multitude of ways (course notes, mandatory readings, research, etc.). In order to get the most out of the documents they are asked to read, students often need guidance to identify important information and to understand why it is useful. In an educational context where time is often a luxury for students and teachers alike, Quillionz, a platform using the power of artificial intelligence (AI) to generate comprehension questions from a text, can efficiently help you provide such guidance.

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.

An Interactive Tool to Help Students Avoid Plagiarism

Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

Students in virtually any college course that includes oral and written assignments are confronted with the concept of plagiarism.

In order to increase student awareness and autonomy in regard to plagiarism, Cégep Marie-Victorin’s Service du développement pédagogique, des programmes et de la recherche has elaborated a visual, interactive tool that helps students make the critical decisions necessary to avoid plagiarizing. It is available in both French and English.
