Creating an Online Community of Users Within the Classroom

Published November 20, 2011  |  3D Animation and Computer Generated Imagery

Matt Herzog Teacher, Cégep de Bois-de-Boulogne

Information technology is not as essential to teaching an application such as Maya, a complex 3D software using animation, modeling and dynamics, as one would think, but sophisticated software such as this is acquiring a role in social media outside of the classroom.

Immediate Feedback to Students Using the Branching Feature of Google Forms

Published April 13, 2015  |  Physics

Kevin Lenton Teacher, Vanier College

As a basic instructional principle, learners need feedback, and to receive maximum benefit from feedback, it should be supplied as soon as possible after an assessment or ideally after each question. I recently experimented with Google Forms to find a way to provide this immediate feedback.

Audio Feedback: Customized Follow-up for Students

Published May 3, 2016  |  French (Language and Literature)

Karine Bélair Teacher, Collégial international Sainte-Anne

When I am correcting my students’ assignments in my French or Law courses, I often feel the need to go beyond my correction codes. For me, it seems insufficient to simply mark “unclear” or “requires further development.” How can you clarify? What does “requires further development” mean? I really want to reformulate the sentence that requires clarification, and to outline the explanations in order to provide an example. It’s unfortunate that my handwriting is difficult for students to decipher. It’s also unfortunate that their copy looks like a construction site after I have finished my job of editing, crossing out sentences and adding comments, as much within the text as in the margins… That’s why I tried out a new style of providing feedback – audio feedback.

Keyboard shortcuts to speed up formative feedback

Published November 28, 2017  |  English (Second Language)

Netta Gorman Teacher, Cégep de l'Abitibi-Témiscamingue

Have you ever had a sore hand after writing almost identical comments on the copies of all your students, again and again? Did you know that when correcting digital documents, you can avoid this by setting up automatic substitution codes? In addition, by creating keyboard shortcuts, you can give students detailed feedback. I do it in Google Docs, but it's possible with other word processing tools!

Five teachers from LaSalle College (Montreal) have formed a Community of Practice on Active Learning to facilitate the establishment of a learning environment to foster the implementation of this pedagogical approach.

As suits the bilingual nature of LaSalle, the presentations are in either English or French, and comments are made in either language as well.

The internet gives us access to vast free video resources. Yet in spite of these technological innovations, students still consume digital media mostly passively in classroom settings. Three free online platforms allow you to create different types of video-based tasks that engage your students more actively.

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.
