Free and Open Source Software: Much More Than Touch Screens - Useful and Responsible Computing

Published February 24, 2017  |  History

Kurt Vignola Teacher,

I’ve been using Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) for more than 10 years now. In the beginning, the fact that I could use the software for free was what I found interesting. As time went on, I grew to appreciate their user-friendliness and their interoperability. My use of FOSS has now taken on a symbolic value: a refusal of hyper-consumerism, rejecting any restraints on the free flow of ideas caused by copyright laws and opposing the commercialisation of education.

Mathematics and Programming in the Cloud with CoCalc

Published June 13, 2017  |  Mathematics

Gabriel Indurskis Teacher, Champlain College - Campus Saint-Lambert

Cloud computing is an increasingly important part of the college experience in Quebec. With more and more educational establishments using Google Tools, Office 365 and Moodle, there is less and less of an emphasis on having computers with a laundry list of applications installed. When you can fire up a web browser and have access to a wide range of tools, it is a game-changer. The field of mathematics is also well-entrenched within this computing trend, with the appearance of cloud-based innovations in the past couple of years, not the least of which is a powerful platform for cloud computing known as SageMathCloud, which has recently been rebranded as CoCalc. Since this name change is very recent, most of the information and tutorials on the internet still make reference to the old name, and this article will use both names interchangeably.

ICTs That Have a Positive Impact on Students with ADHD

Published February 27, 2017  |  Multidisciplinary

Angie Stevens Editor, Profweb

Teachers and staff at CEGEP Champlain-St. Lawrence were invited to participate in 2 pedagogical workshops about practical tips for teaching students with ADHD, on November 24, 2016 and more recently on February 23, 2017. These workshops were presented by Isabelle Quirion, Adapted Services Counsellor for colleges in Eastern Quebec, who works for the CCSI (Centres collégiaux de soutien à l’intégration). The first workshop introduced participants to ADHD and its impacts on college students. Considering that these students are easily distracted, have trouble staying attentive, frequently forget things, and have trouble remaining seated, I could not help thinking that the use of ICTs must be a hindrance to their learning. However, after reading the literature that Isabelle distributed and attending the second workshop, I realized that when used appropriately, there are many technological tools that teachers already have access to, that can help these students stay focused, get organized and have a positive impact on their academic lives.

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.
