Integrating Active Videos into Active Learning

Published September 8, 2013  |  Chemistry

Yann Brouillette Teacher, Dawson College

Yann Brouillette has created videos that reflect his interests in chemistry, film and active learning. As these films have been posted on YouTube, Profweb’s readers can use them in the classroom or as a model for other productions.

Creating a Personal Digital Learning Environment

Published March 6, 2011  |  Chemistry

David Adley Teacher (retired), Dawson College

You know the students that you’ve seen in your classes who are there in body but not in spirit and who don’t bother to take notes. These days, among the living dead, there are the ones who are depending on the SmartBoard because in my classes, they know that what was put on the board will be available to them later on. There are still some students, however, who are taking notes.

Information Technology and Active Learning – Good Chemistry

Published September 23, 2012  |  Chemistry

Murray Bronet Teacher, Cégep John Abbott College

In Murray's experience, active learning started independently of information technology. He has discovered, however, that the combination of these two instructional strategies makes for an extremely powerful blend.

Creativity as a Tool for Learning Science

Published May 18, 2014  |  Chemistry

Jailson Farias De Lima Teacher, Vanier College

Deeply rooted in rationality, the Sciences have historically been placed in opposition to the Arts, a field in which creativity is recognized as playing a key role. The false dichotomy that “artists are not analytical and scientists are not creative” was engraved in the foundations of our educational system, but information technology is being used to break down these barriers. A number of my cross-disciplinary courses use asynchronous communication to give students a better understanding of both sides of these polarities.

A Digital Laboratory Notebook Within Moodle

Published September 12, 2016  |  Chemistry

Josée Debigaré Teacher, Cégep de Lévis-Lauzon

The laboratory notebook is indispensable within many scientific disciplines, as it constitutes the "memory of an experiment." The content is traditionally written by hand in a spiral-bound notebook. The observations,  measurements, calculations and results are recorded in a chronological and permanent fashion in the notebook. With the development of computing and the widespread use of digital tools, the laboratory notebooks are, little by little, transforming into scrapbooks.

Producing Videos with Tablets to Facilitate Student Review

Published April 9, 2018  |  Chemistry

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb
Shazia Syed Teacher, Heritage College

Since Chemistry can be a challenging subject for students, I am always looking for creative ways to engage the students and to more effectively share the subject matter. With the realization that students often turn to online videos as a learning resource, I decided to create my own. In doing so, I could provide the students with videos that would be specific to their learning needs. After researching a few solutions, I began using an app on my tablet called ShowMe to produce summary videos for my students.

A Lightboard Studio to Record Professional-Looking Educative Videos Simply and Rapidly

Published February 16, 2020  |  Chemistry

Caroline Cormier Teacher, Cégep André-Laurendeau

Do you know Lightboard studios? They are video recording studios where teachers record themselves through a pane of glass on which they write. An application then inverts the picture so that even if the teacher is writing from their left to their right, the text can be read clearly in the video. As a bonus: a clever lighting system makes the fluorescent ink used look even more impactful.

The One-On-One Interview as an Innovative Assessment Method

Published May 6, 2020  |  Chemistry

Caroline Cormier Teacher, Cégep André-Laurendeau
Véronique Turcotte Teacher, Cégep André-Laurendeau
François Arseneault-Hubert Teacher, Cégep André-Laurendeau
Bruno Voisard Teacher, Cégep André-Laurendeau

The one-on-one interview ensures equity when we evaluate our students’ learning. In the context of distance education, this innovative method of evaluation could allow us to circumvent the potential integrity problems that distance evaluation can create. Here we discuss how to implement it, with tips and advice drawn from our practice.
