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.

The Architects of Fun in the Pipeline with Animators and Modelers

Published November 29, 2009  |  3D Animation and Computer Generated Imagery

Shawn Bell Educational Advisor, Dawson College

It is well known that play is essential for the development of motor, cognitive and social skills in both animals and humans. Video games are now the primary platform for playing games and have become the leading edge for learning. Although the Ubisoft campus is designed to train students for the video game industry, many students here are learning through games, and not just how to build them.

Books Are Information Technology!

Published January 26, 2014  |  Protessional Theatre

Pierre Dussol Teacher, Cégep John Abbott College

Pierre Dussol's students were not producing AutoCad drawings for the theatre that were good enough to build scenery from. He decided to produce a manual in the form of a book because most times his students have only one screen in a lab, and he wanted to provide something tangible for them to consult while they drafted.

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.
