Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb
Andréanne Turgeon Editor, Profweb

Free and open source software (FOSS) provides an interesting alternative to commercially-available products. With continued pressure for colleges to find new ways to respect their budget parameters and increased privacy concerns related to what information our software is collecting and communicating to the multinational corporations that create most of our software, it is important that the free and open source movement continue to thrive so that we have alternative means for us to use our technology.

Create Gamified Interactive Reviews with Wordwall

Published September 9, 2019  |  Multidisciplinary

Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

Interactive quiz platforms like Kahoot and Wooclap are popular tools to liven up review sessions. They bring a game-like element to any review lesson, which motivates students and fosters retention. 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.

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.
