Although written in 2009, this article is still current : One of the main advantages of using blogs is that they allow us to leave a mark on our journey, the evolution of our thoughts and the influence of comments from others. First, this article describes what a blog is and offers different educational contexts conducive to the use of this tool (portfolio, internship book, etc.)
A teacher explains why and how the use of concept maps is a winning educational strategy for problem-solving activities, as well as developing reflective skills and preparing for the comprehensive evaluation.
In addition to presenting the steps leading to the realization of the activity, this real-life story presents the impacts of blog use by students to collect the entries of their internship journal in Laboratory Techniques (biotechnologies). This facilitated collaboration and sharing of expertise through student exchanges and live feedback from the teacher. Making the blog public has raised the quality of work and student engagement.
A Virtual Team-teaching Project has been taking place between Cégep de Sept-Iles and Vanier College since 2005. The project's pioneers, Sharon Coyle and Sophie Jacmin, are both Humanities teachers and coordinators. Their students would meet from their respective colleges online using webcams and projectors.

In 2018, cell phones, tablets and computers combined with free applications or software give us the ability to create high quality video and broadcast it within moments.

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.
