Hidden treasures: Free and Inexpensive Information and Communication Technologies for College Students

Published June 7, 2016  |  Multidisciplinary

Laura King Teacher, Cégep André-Laurendeau
Catherine Fichten Teacher, Dawson College
Alice Havel Research Associate, Dawson College
Mary Jorgensen Research Associate, Adaptech
Christine Vo Research Assistant, Adaptech
Evelyne Marcil, M.A Teacher, Adaptech
Jillian Budd, M.A. Project Manager, Adaptech

Our most recent project at the Adaptech Research Network has been to update our Free and Inexpensive Technology Database (FANDI), with a focus on the latest mobile, Windows and Macintosh products. These technologies not only meet the needs of students in many Cegep career and technical programs, but they also address one of Quebec’s greatest challenges: maintaining a qualified workforce in the areas of industry and technology. Furthermore, FANDI supports students in other college programs, students with various visible and non-visible disabilities and those who have weaker language skills. Read below to find out how the database was developed and to learn about some of our favorite technologies.

Teaching How to Navigate the Sea of Digital Information, if not You, then Who?

Published March 26, 2019  |  Multidisciplinary

Susan MacNeil Editor, Profweb

In the past information was found mostly in libraries where it was vetted and curated by librarians. Now with advancements in technology and the Internet, anyone can submit content on the World Wide Web; however, there are no “librarians” to assess the quality of the information that appears online.

Confessions of a Use-driven Consumer of Information Technology

Published October 30, 2007  |  Multidisciplinary

Joanne McCalla Teacher, Champlain College - Saint Lawrence

Joanne McCalla takes a no-nonsense approach to information technology in her teaching. Animated by a real need to help her students, she only uses IT when she needs it and only uses what she needs of it. This is one very successful way to use technology and still stay in charge. It reflects Joanne's problem-based approach to teaching which she has outlined in the Journal of Chemical Education and now in our pages.

What is ‘Unlocking Research’?

Published September 7, 2014  |  Multidisciplinary

Norm Spatz Editor (retired), Profweb

Unlocking Research is a guide developed by the library staff at the Saint-Lambert Campus of Champlain College to help college level students navigate their way through the research process from the initial definition and development of a research topic to the final citation of sources in the bibliography. Unlike many similar tools, Unlocking Research targets the college level student, avoiding topics such as how to write theses, which are too advanced, and focuses on topics where college students often have difficulties. For example, there is information on how to recognize the elements of a bibliography because college students trying to do a bibliography may not recognize the difference between the article author and the editor of a book or the title of a book and the title of the chapter. Unlocking Research and associated Glossary were created with the help of a grant from the Entente Canada Québec.

Unlocking Research Everywhere

Nicole Haché Library Coordinator, Champlain College - Campus Saint-Lambert

The library at Champlain Saint-Lambert has an amazing support from our campus director, Don Shewan. Knowing there were grants available, he came to me a couple of years ago looking for a project idea from the library. I came up with the idea to develop more information literacy tools and videos. Given the impact that we had with our students’ academic successes from that project, I can now expect a phone call asking, “Do you have a project?” whenever funds are available. I therefore need to keep scanning the blogosphere and twittersphere for trends in academic librarianship. This keeps ideas with respect to different technology related projects that could help not only our students but also other colleges and libraries within the province simmering on the back burner.

Is information technology at the leading edge of teaching practice?

Published September 22, 2013  |  Multidisciplinary

Claude Martel Project Manager, PERFORMA

In this column, Claude Martel suggests that the work of Dr Matthew J. Koehler of Michigan State University could provide a valuable resource to reflect on the question of whether information technology is becoming the leading edge of pedagogical evolution. The work of Dr Koehler centers on the acronym TPACK which stands for Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge. Mr Martel examines the skills that today's teachers need to master to remain abreast of the developments in their profession.

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.
