Create and delete sections

Splitting a document into multiple sections allows you to vary formatting without necessarily starting a new page. In our example, we use the Word 2010 version. Note that if you use other word processing software, the procedures and location of the commands may vary but the section concept remains the same.

Format cells

When using a spreadsheet, it may be necessary, but also very useful, to format cells to bring out the information they contain. This is the purpose of this demonstration. To illustrate this example, we use the Excel 2010 version. You will see that the shape of some spreadsheets may differ from one software to another. On the other hand, the software still remains quite similar.

Regardless of the version used, it is possible to proceed in different ways.

Second Language Adventure Tourism

I wanted to give my International Baccalaureate (IB) students an experience where they would be working on their own, at their own pace and speaking with authentic Anglophones. All manner of information technology including Facebook and chat as well as a willing partner in a French as Second Language course at Cégep de Gaspésie des Îles made for a great way to realize these goals.

Student Facebook Pages - A New Agenda in the Classroom

Maggie McDonnell discovered that her Liberal Arts students had started a program specific Facebook page even before they entered college. Some students felt that the Facebook page was a more reliable way of staying on schedule with their homework than an agenda and that the Facebook page was an excellent way of catching up after missing one or several classes or getting additional information about concepts not totally mastered in the classroom.

Active Learning

Jean Desjardins Learning Technology Advisor, Collège Sainte-Anne
Isabelle Senécal Director of Teaching, of Pedagogical Innovation and of International Development, Collège Sainte-Anne

The active learning methods have in common of placing the students in the middle of the learning process. Their teachers can then also think about giving them a role in the planning of the evaluation. Active learning is inspired by real-life contexts that are meaningful for the students, which can increase their level of motivation for the tasks that are suggested to them. It encourages durable learnings rather than using only their short-term memory.
