Then, in 2005, the project was broadened to all college students. The development of the ICT Profile for College Students was carried out between 2006 and 2009 along with information, animation and promotion...

A librarian or pedagogical technician (SMTE - Spécialiste en moyens et techniques d’enseignement), ICT counsellor and other actors working in each college may be asked to collaborate with teachers to participate in one or more steps towards the integration of the ICT Profile in a program. They can also be asked to support teachers individually in the integration of specific ICT skills in a course. But what is their role? Of course the answer can vary from one college to another, depending...

In this regard, we see that more and more colleges introduce objectives linked with the ICT Profile for Students in major orientations such as the Student Success plan, in the ICT Development plan and even in the Strategic Plan. Such decisions encourage the implementation of actions and investments in resources associated with the development of skills linked with...

Integrating the ICT Profile in a course

Christine Veilleux, Teahcer at Cégep Limoilou, sharing her experience with the ICT Profile (clip in French).

Students in our colleges carry out more and more learning activities using ICT. Teachers integrate ICT in their teaching for many reasons: because the nature of their program naturally benefits from ICT, by pedagogical instinct that leads them to exploit their potential, for personal interest, etc. Teachers can benefit from...

Why Integrate ICT in Programs of Study?

The development of informational, methodological, cognitive and technological skills is essential for students, workers and current and future citizens. One cannot assume that students will acquire these skills on their own, thus it is necessary to teach them. This is the main reason why the college network has been organizing for many years to offer teachers, students and pedagogical counsellors a framework (the ICT Profile for Students), guidance, resources and tools necessary to support...

Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

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 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.

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.

Laura King Teacher, Cégep André-Laurendeau

In the context of a research project funded by the “Fonds de Recherche du Québec sur la société et la culture” (FRQRSC), 311 students from Dawson College and Cégep André-Laurendeau were surveyed online, in French or English, about their teachers’ practices in the use of ICTs and cyber-learning. This survey allowed the researchers to collect data on the teachers’ use of technology as well as the students’ level of satisfaction regarding this use.
