10 Reasons to Use a Grammar Checker with College Students

Published March 23, 2018  |  Multidisciplinary

Nicholas Walker Teacher, Collège Ahuntsic

When students went on strike in 2012, a colleague and I used the extra time to launch a free online grammar checker website for our English Second Language college students. Now, after 6 years of development, the Virtual Writing Tutor is in its third incarnation. To see some of its evolution, see earlie stories about the development of this grammar checker published on Profweb in 2013. Better-looking, more powerful, and more accurate than ever before, it has attracted the interest of researchers and has corrected the writing of nearly a million learners from 211 countries. Here are 10 reasons why ESL teachers should consider using the Virtual Writing Tutor grammar checker with their college ESL students.

12 Things students can do with their phones in class, other than texting

Susan MacNeil Editor, Profweb

We have heard a lot about the negative effects of cell phones in the classroom.

35th AQPC Symposium: Inspiring Sessions in Beautiful Saguenay

Published June 9, 2015  |  Multidisciplinary

Profweb Editorial team, Profweb

It takes a great deal of energy to create synergy which, once it is in motion, becomes a source of energy in and of itself. In my three favourite presentations this year, the social aspects of education to energize both teaching and learning were critical. Lisa Deguire, Gina Lavine, Susan MacNeil and Norm Spatz (ESL Teachers from across Quebec), talked about creating synergy between multiple teachers in a diverse range of projects, using social networks (Facebook and Twitter), gamification (CourseCraft and ClassDojo) and thematic Web 2.0 tools (NewsActivist). They used the term ConNETivism to describe this type of cooperation in their workshop Move Over Constructivism, It’s Time for ”ConNETivism” (#309).

3D-print Technology for Smartphone-based Physics Experiments

Published January 28, 2019  |  Physics

Chris Isaac Larnder Teacher, Cégep John Abbott College

I’m not that great at building things, which, I guess, is why I ended up being a physicist and not an engineer. As previously reported on Profweb, I have been running accelerometer experiments with smartphones to help my students learn physics concepts through digital-era equivalents of “real world” examples. With the help of students, we developed 3D-printed equipment to make these experiments more accessible to our growing network of teachers outside of our college.

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.
