Published August 23, 2009  |  English (Second Language)

Jean-François Roy Teacher, Cégep Garneau

Two infallible ways to fire up students' motivation are to have them create something and then to provide them with an audience to share their creation with. For me, the website software Joomla has turned out to be the best tool to reach that goal.

Using Moodle and Other Educational Technology to Reach More Students

Published August 28, 2014  |  English (Second Language)

Giel Hofmann Teacher, Cégep Édouard-Montpetit

I’m interested in Ed-Tech because students expect it more and more. The language of technology is becoming the language of this generation, and it is something that allows me to extend my teaching beyond the classroom.

Johanne Morin Teacher, Cégep Limoilou

The collaboration possibilities provided by Google Docs have allowed me to take teaching essay writing to both a higher and more effective level. Students advance through the notions of essay writing, working continuously on improving the same document throughout the semester, to finish with a polished essay. Peer learning with Google Docs creates an atmosphere of collaboration and makes it easier for me and the students to see the progress being made as well as the competencies being acquired.

Virtual Team Teaching is Gaining Ground in the Regions

Lisa Deguire Teacher, Cégep de Jonquière

The Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean region of Quebec is a bastion of the French language where students have few authentic opportunities to engage in English conversation with Anglophones or English-speaking Allophones. This can be particularly problematic for English as a Second Language teachers.
