Use editing and pasting tool

Whether you study in a technical program or a pre-university program, sooner or later you will be asked to calculate, process and present data. The manipulation of data in an array, this is the purpose of this demonstration. The demonstration uses Excel 2010 from Microsoft.

Resource

Insert objects

Your work may require adding data, tables, or graphics from other applications. This tutorial explains how to insert objects from another application into a word processor, such as a spreadsheet or slide show. In this example, we use the Word 2010 version as well as other applications from the Office 2010 suite. Note that while the usage procedures may vary slightly from one application to another, they are quite similar.

Protect your computer

From the moment we use a computer, we must think security. Software helps ensure that your computer is well protected against computer viruses or any other type of malware. Some practices also help minimize the risk of your computer malfunctioning. This demonstration will help you to see more clearly.

Generate footnotes

It is possible to add footnotes to clarify your text or to quote a source. In CEGEP or university, it is mandatory to clearly quote all references. This is a basic principle of intellectual property. This capsule will show you how to add a footnote. To illustrate this example, we use the Word 2010 version. Note that even though the operating procedures may vary slightly from one software to another, they still remain quite similar.

Add pictures, tables and graphics

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.
