Why do I need to develop ICT skills?

A recent Quebec study in which more than thirty thousand college students participated (Poellhuber, Karsenti et collab., 2012), revealed that students have an exaggerated perception of their true competency: the majority of students believe that they are competent, even experts when it comes to, for example, the different aspects of informational skills.

However, when they first come to college, many students demonstrate significant gaps, either in defining research subjects,...

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.
