It is impressive what a little artificial intelligence can now do for ESL learners. Here is a short list that is sure to contain at least a few surprises.

A Class Blog to Thin the Classroom Walls

Published January 16, 2020  |  Multidisciplinary

Alison Crump, Marianopolis College

As an educator, in all contexts, I focus on pedagogical approaches that create spaces for learner agency, a sense of belonging, and collaborative participation. Some of my favourite and most memorable teaching moments come from learning contexts outside of the classroom, both in-person and online. One such moment occurred when I used a class blog to open up a course assignment to a public forum.

The new approach of the 2014 ICT Student Profile has significant advantages. A transversal profile for "all programs, all colleges," it gives more flexibility to programs on the choice of software applications to use to master a skill, taking variations from one curriculum to another into account.

Mélanie Langlois-Sabourin Teacher, Cégep de l'Outaouais
Denis Lavoie Teacher, Cégep de l'Outaouais

While he was the person responsible for the course Integrated Placement (Stage d’intégration), offered as part of the 5th semester in the Electrotechnology program, Denis noticed that students had some training gaps in communication, even though this was included within the program objectives.

To counteract this difficulty, Denis started integrating some communication theory into his course in order to better prepare his students.

The Nursing Department at John Abbott College is now using two nursing simulators or manikins as part of a program to encourage the use of information technology.

Rajesh Malik hasn’t let blindness interfere with his teaching. Prior to the age of computers and the internet, he used standard techniques of lecturing and showed videos on VHS, but as the computer took over classrooms, he used more multi-media devices and, of course computers.

A Digital Laboratory Notebook Within Moodle

Published September 12, 2016  |  Chemistry

Josée Debigaré Teacher, Cégep de Lévis

The laboratory notebook is indispensable within many scientific disciplines, as it constitutes the "memory of an experiment." The content is traditionally written by hand in a spiral-bound notebook. The observations,  measurements, calculations and results are recorded in a chronological and permanent fashion in the notebook. With the development of computing and the widespread use of digital tools, the laboratory notebooks are, little by little, transforming into scrapbooks.

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.
