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.

Evernote and Teaching

Published September 21, 2014  |  Chemistry

Carole Emilie Baddour, PhD Teacher, Collégial international Sainte-Anne

Like all addictions, it started innocently. I heard so much talk about Evernote from others, that my journey simply began out of curiosity. I wanted to know for myself what it was and how to use it. A few years ago, I started using Evernote for my personal affairs and I fell in love. It was such a powerful organizational tool and I was hooked. Evernote allowed me to have everything I could possibly need (such as documents, audio files, annotations and website clippings) stored in once place and synced across every device I used. I loved Evernote so much in my personal life that I decided to bring it into my chemistry classes.

The Smartphone in Class: The Potential of Mentimeter

Published January 31, 2017  |  Chemistry

Basile Tchize Teacher, Cégep de Saint-Laurent

An enthusiast of active pedagogical approaches, I like the possibilities that technologies offer for my pedagogical practices. I will share with you my experience of a pedagogical use of cell phones in class with Mentimeter. This was a very enriching experience for my teaching in chemistry. I also gave a presentation to my colleagues during a pedagogical meeting and to my colleagues of the college network in the form of a workshop given during a thematic day offered by the ACPQ (Association des collèges privés du Québec), June 1st, 2016.

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.

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 Tale of 2 CEGEPs: Virtual Labs with Geographically-Dispersed Student Teams in Chemistry

Published March 29, 2016  |  Chemistry

Murray Bronet Teacher, Cégep John Abbott College
Petra Turkewitsch Teacher, Cégep de la Gaspésie et des Îles

What are the ingredients for a compelling distance learning and collaboration project in Chemistry? Take one large CEGEP in the city, one geographically remote CEGEP in the beautiful Gaspé Peninsula, add dedicated students and teachers, a sprinkle of technology and a whole bunch of seaweed!

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.

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.

Projecting Whiteboard Content Online

Published January 10, 2010  |  Chemistry

David Adley Teacher (retired), Dawson College

Although surprisingly easy to use, the combination of an interactive electronic whiteboard and a course management system has allowed David Adley to dramatically improve student access to the information that is presented in his introductory Organic Chemistry class.
