Experiential Learning and Digital Storytelling: A Powerful Duo

Published February 6, 2017  |  Multidisciplinary

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb

Experiential learning is a means of moving from theory to application which allows for a fair amount of student discovery and serendipity to take place. Digital storytelling is a way for students to record, report or even be evaluated on their learning using modern technologies. The millennials, who are sometimes referred to as Generation C (and have a penchant for Creating, Collaborating and Communicating) seem enthusiastic about using mobile devices and technology. When students share what they learn through multimedia, they can even transport us to remote First Nations communities, providing us insight on places that we may never have the privilege to visit within our lifetimes. The result of combining their experiential learning with digital storytelling is most inspiring!

Published September 26, 2019  |  Multidisciplinary

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb

When planning for a new semester, we may want to consider a variety of approaches that make learning accessible to our students. It is important to consider the needs of all of our students. In 2019, I attended 2 higher education events that examined the question of how to ensure that our training is accessible to those who may have specific needs. During one of these I discovered the Visulibre project, which puts enabling technologies in the hands of visually impaired users. I recently spoke to Miguel Ross who leads the Visulibre project based in Quebec City with hopes of learning more about their mission and activities.

A Digital Laboratory Notebook Within Moodle

Published September 12, 2016  |  Chemistry

Josée Debigaré Teacher, Cégep de Lévis-Lauzon

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 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.
