Owning Our History With Podcasts and Cognitive Maps

Published March 8, 2015  |  History

Martine Dumais Teacher, Cégep Limoilou

I begin each semester by telling my students that history is not something to be learned by heart. Rather, it is a kind of material that we work with. The imagery I like to use is sculpting with clay. They laugh a bit at this, but the analogy helps them to understand that they need to play with the material, as well as to interpreting and integrate it. This is how the subject matter becomes intellectually stimulating and, as a result, easier to learn.

Free and Open Source Software: Much More Than Touch Screens - Useful and Responsible Computing

Published February 24, 2017  |  History

Kurt Vignola Teacher, Cégep de Rimouski

I’ve been using Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) for more than 10 years now. In the beginning, the fact that I could use the software for free was what I found interesting. As time went on, I grew to appreciate their user-friendliness and their interoperability. My use of FOSS has now taken on a symbolic value: a refusal of hyper-consumerism, rejecting any restraints on the free flow of ideas caused by copyright laws and opposing the commercialisation of education.
