Joanne McCalla Teacher, Champlain College - Saint Lawrence

Joanne McCalla takes a no-nonsense approach to information technology in her teaching.

It reflects Joanne's problem-based approach to teaching which she has outlined in the Journal of Chemical Education and now in our pages.

Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

The internet gives us access to vast free video resources. Yet in spite of these technological innovations, students still consume digital media mostly passively in classroom settings. Three free online platforms allow you to create different types of video-based tasks that engage your students more actively.

Finding the Right Recipe for My Spanish Class Presentations

Published January 22, 2018  |  Spanish

Virginie Connan Teacher, Heritage College

Preparing students for a world that is constantly evolving is an important part of our job as a teacher. With many international opportunities for careers on the horizon, it is a good idea for students to be functional in more than one language. In my Spanish complementary course, I strive to make learning a new language fun for my students, and have started using student-produced videos as a way to apply their learning while unleashing their creativity. I am also showing them how their smartphones can be used as a tool for an educational purpose.

Using LEGO to Learn About the Agile Approach in Computer Science

Published August 15, 2019  |  Electronic Data-processing

Catherine Rhéaume Editor, Profweb

In April of 2019, the VTÉ (Vitrine technologie-éducation) organized a laboratory entitled Innovative Pedagogy: Play, Gamification and Serious Games in Service of Seriously Motivating Lessons! (La pédagogie innovante: le jeu, la ludification et les jeux sérieux au service d’apprentissages sérieusement motivants!) During the laboratory, there was definitely an emphasis on technological tools, but I will be focusing here on a "low-tech" way of gamifying in a domain which is, without question, very technological: computer science. See how Stéphane Lévesque, a teacher in software engineering, uses LEGO to initiate his students to the Agile methodology (a project management methodology for teams which is prevalent in business).

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.
