C’est à ce type de questions auquel répond MonImageWeb.com, un site web conçu et mis en ligne par une équipe du Réseau REPTIC. Le site est un outil de référence pour les étudiants, mais aussi pour les enseignants et intervenants du collégial qui veulent sensibiliser ces derniers aux risques liés au recours aux réseaux sociaux.

Concept Mapping: A Great Instructional Strategy That Encourages Transfer of Knowledge and Critical Thinking

Published August 30, 2018  |  Fashion Design

Heather Sorella Teacher, Collège LaSalle

A while back, in a marketing strategy course of the Fashion Marketing Program, I integrated a project where students would identify the problems experienced by a fashion retailer who was struggling. They then had to propose solutions, find objectives and strategies and create an action plan. It became a very linear project for the students: 2 assignments of 20 marks each. The students would get into groups of 5 and divide up the work, “You do part A, you do part B and I’ll do part C…” etc. Each student would summit their part and the assignment had very little cohesiveness. I even had to tell the students to at least assign the proofreading of the entire work to one of the members of the group and make sure they all used the same font. I could tell which of the students were doing the work.

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.

ICT and Success - Conclusions from the ARC Meta-synthesis

Published January 12, 2014  |  Multidisciplinary

Christian Barrette Project Manager, ARC

The Association pour la recherche au collégial (ARC) conducted a meta-synthesis of the results of 55 research projects using ICT in college teaching in 2012. Christian Barrette presents some of the conclusions that have been drawn from this meta-synthesis. One interesting conclusion is that experiments designed to increase deep learning benefit most from the contribution of ICT. Barrette also informs us about "winning conditions" that distinguish successful experiments from others.

OCLaRE, an Online Collaborative Lab Reporting Environment

Published January 21, 2020  |  Multidisciplinary

Michael Dugdale Teacher, Cégep John Abbott College
Murray Bronet Teacher, Cégep John Abbott College
Petra Turkewitsch Teacher, Cégep de la Gaspésie et des Îles

Modern paradigms of educational research take the view that learning science, rather than being a process of learning new facts, is instead a process of adopting the norms, practices and warrants of scientific culture. A group of teachers from Cégep de la Gaspésie et des îles (GIM) and John Abbott College (JAC) are developing an online scaffolding platform, called OCLaRE, that emphasizes scientific writing, critical thinking, organization and statistical analysis skills in student laboratory reports that will be useful to science students across disciplines.

3 Platforms to Create Video-Based Tasks that Actively Engage Students

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. Three free online platforms allow you to create different types of video-based tasks that engage your students more actively.

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.
