Connecting Classrooms Across the Border with Technology

Published November 2, 2014  |  Multidisciplinary

John E. Fowler Assistant Director, SUNY COIL Center

Knowledge comes from many sources and through a wide range of human experience. In today’s increasingly interconnected world, internationalization and globalization link the local to the global, multiplying the sources of knowledge and making intercultural interactions an increasingly significant aspect of our professional and personal lives. Today’s students not only need to have access to knowledge, but must also be equipped to understand the many contexts and cultural points of view that give meaning to what they know in order to apply their knowledge effectively and sensitively. For that reason, cross-cultural competence has become a key skill in the 21st Century.

Active Learning

Jean Desjardins Educational Advisor, Cégep du Vieux Montréal
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.
