Wikis, Clickers and Online Quizzes - Safe Places to Fail

Published March 30, 2014  |  Chemistry

Michael Lautman Teacher, Cégep John Abbott College

How do you learn if you don’t do something wrong? If you’re a research scientist, 95% of the things you do are wrong. You celebrate those tiny little bits that you get right. Technology provides opportunities for students to learn from their mistakes safely. The true wisdom for the teacher is discovering what students don’t know in order to guide them to knowledge.

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.

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.

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

As part of a collaborative laboratory course, the authors are creating an online cooperative science platform between students in the Gaspé and students at John Abbott. In order to test the use of both Google Docs and Moodle forums for writing an on-line collaborative lab report, a colleague was asked to conduct a two-week pilot study of the platforms.

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.

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!

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.
