Harnessing the Power of IA to Help Students Become Better Readers with Quillionz

Published May 23, 2019  |  Multidisciplinary

Andy Van Drom Editor, Profweb

Effective and critical reading is a key skill in any field. Even if you do not explicitly teach reading strategies and skills, chances are your students have to engage with written content in a multitude of ways (course notes, mandatory readings, research, etc.). In order to get the most out of the documents they are asked to read, students often need guidance to identify important information and to understand why it is useful. In an educational context where time is often a luxury for students and teachers alike, Quillionz, a platform using the power of artificial intelligence (AI) to generate comprehension questions from a text, can efficiently help you provide such guidance.

A World Wide Web: Engaging Learners Online

Published May 20, 2019  |  English (Second Language)

Linda Manimtim, M.Ed., Red River College, Winnipeg MB and EAL Specialist, PEG Canada

In this digital age, information is available to our students at the click of a Google search. They have access to amazing tools as well as unreliable information at the touch of a finger. As instructors, we have the opportunity to help guide this rushing river of data to benefit our students and ourselves. They’re online at home, on the bus, while they’re eating, while they watch TV, while they socialize, and sometimes while they are in class. So, why not take advantage of this almost natural proclivity, and make use of it for educational purposes?

Creating an Inclusive Online Learning Environment with Office 365 Teams and the OneNote Class Notebook

Published April 15, 2019  |  Multidisciplinary

Caroline Demers Teacher, Cégep Garneau

The Office 365 OneNote Class Notebook is my favorite online tool for distributing course content as it greatly facilitates note taking and includes the Immersive Reader, which is a great tool for eliminating difficulties related to screen-based reading. By integrating my class notebook into the Office 365 Teams application, I have developed a very comprehensive collaborative and structured learning environment allowing all tasks to be completed in one place.

Using Geogebra within Moodle to Give Physics Students Instantaneous Feedback

Published April 9, 2019  |  Physics

Kevin Lenton Teacher, Vanier College

Traditionally, Physics students work with pencil and paper on Physics assessments. In recent semesters, I have been using GeoGebra and Moodle to provide opportunities for my students to interact with Physics-related content and get instantaneous feedback. These tools allow me to better monitor whether they have integrated the learning objectives of my classes and track the friction points, and has ultimately helped to improve their performance in my courses.

Renewing the Quantitative Methods Course by Anchoring it in Real Life

Published March 18, 2019  |  Mathematics

Nadia Laflamme Teacher, Cégep de Lévis-Lauzon

Since 2013, gradually, my colleagues Annie Turcotte and Steve Fortin, and I have reviewed in depth the way that we were giving the Quantitative Methods course. We now give the class in an ALC (active learning classroom), and engage in activities based on problem situations anchored in real life. For one activity, we collaborate with local community organizations: the students utilise their competencies to respond to the needs of those organizations.

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.

Google Classroom to Support Sustainable Learning in the Dental Prosthesis Program

Julie Jacob Teacher, Cégep Édouard-Montpetit

I teach in the Dental Prosthesis Program. During the winter session, I give the course Conception et confection de pièces squelettiques II to students in their 4th semester in the program. This course allows them to finish acquiring the skills essential for them to succeed the integration activity. However, the students do not have the opportunity to practice these skills between their 4th and 6th semester of studies. This means that 3rd year students sometimes have difficulty finding theoretical or practical notions from the year before. For this reason, I set out to find both, a way to ensure the safekeeping of course contents and a means of making the content easily accessible to the students.
