Published September 11, 2006  |  Multidisciplinary

Denis Thibault Editor, Profweb

No one questions the impact that information systems technology has had on pedagogical activities. Computer programs which allow classroom content to be digitized and information to be stored and shared individually or as part of a network all broaden the learning environment.  Therefore, computer labs, which are no longer the only places where pedagogical activities can be executed using information systems technology, are being progressively replaced by such innovations as the virtual classroom and the home office. Students now have the possibility of connecting to a network, with their laptops or desktops, in the classroom or at home.

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.
