Evernote and Teaching

Published September 21, 2014  |  Chemistry

Carole Emilie Baddour, PhD Teacher, Collégial international Sainte-Anne

Like all addictions, it started innocently. I heard so much talk about Evernote from others, that my journey simply began out of curiosity. I wanted to know for myself what it was and how to use it. A few years ago, I started using Evernote for my personal affairs and I fell in love. It was such a powerful organizational tool and I was hooked. Evernote allowed me to have everything I could possibly need (such as documents, audio files, annotations and website clippings) stored in once place and synced across every device I used. I loved Evernote so much in my personal life that I decided to bring it into my chemistry classes.

On the other hand digital learning requires we rethink the traditional classroom design.

Honestly Clicking

Published September 25, 2011  |  Philosophy

Veronica Ponce Teacher, Marianopolis College

Students are unfortunately often shy about saying when they haven't understood something in class. Using clickers to ask if they've understood gets results. There are some issues where students will only reveal their views anonymously through clickers as well.

Published March 3, 2020  |  Languages and Literature

Josianne Beaudoin-Lacroix Teacher, Cégep de l'Abitibi-Témiscamingue

I have been interested in integrating technology in my classroom since I started teaching ESL (English as a second language) at Cégep de l'Abitibi-Témiscamingue. I find it is even more important at the college level where many lessons can still be dominated by teachers talking.

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.
