Bringing More Spontaneous Interaction to the Virtual Classroom with Proximity Chat

Published January 28, 2021  |  Multidisciplinary

Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

As distance and hybrid teaching and learning scenarios have become the norm since spring 2020, teachers and students alike have come to grips with the videoconferencing platforms that enable synchronous class sessions, such as Teams and Zoom. While strategies like using breakout rooms and varying group size or composition increase engagement by changing how and with whom students interact, they cannot equal the level of agency and spontaneity that in-person interaction offers. A new breed of web-based virtual environments offering proximity chat (also called spatial chat) mimic the possibility of speaking or collaborating with one or more peers while remaining in the same virtual space as the entire class group.

Published January 21, 2021  |  Multidisciplinary

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb
Patrick Savard Teacher, Champlain College - Saint Lawrence

Designing courses to be inclusive for students with differing needs can be puzzling for teachers. Patrick Savard from Champlain Saint Lawrence is using inclusive design in his Pre-University Long Fiction class, allowing students to choose the novels they study and using education technology to provide a voice for even the most timid students. Patrick is even involving the students in choosing how they will be evaluated! The result? Engaged students who actively invest themselves in their course work.

Published January 17, 2021  |  Multidisciplinary

Alex Boudreau Learning Technology Advisor, Pôle d’innovation technopédagogique de la Faculté d’éducation, Université de Sherbrooke

Is it mandatory for a synchronous class session to bring together all students in a group in the same virtual room for the entire duration of the class that would have taken place if it had been taught in a face-to-face setting? No! The use of videoconferencing should not force a linear lecture presentation format.

Published November 30, 2020  |  Multidisciplinary

Ryan W. Moon Editor, Profweb

The approach to evaluating students during the global pandemic is the topic of many faculty discussions since March 2020.

Active Learning

Jean Desjardins Educational Advisor, Cégep du Vieux Montréal
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.
