A New Spin on Oral Presentations with Tablets and YouTube

Published May 24, 2017  |  Humanities

Heidi Quinsey Teacher, Champlain College - Campus Saint-Lambert

I believe that it is important for students to have the ability to express themselves. Working on oral presentations plays a crucial role in helping them to develop this ability. I became disenchanted over time with the traditional ‘one shot, make-it-or-break-it’ way of managing individual presentations for my classes. More recently, I have enlisted the use of tablets and YouTube in my Humanities: Knowledge course as means of capturing my students’ oral presentations and offering them a way to improve their ability to prepare these presentations.

Do smartphones and tablets have a place in CEGEPs? An interview with Nicole Perreault, community leader for the ITREP Network

Published March 2, 2018  |  Multidisciplinary

Alain Lallier Webmaster, Portail du réseau collégial

On January 4, 2018, the Journal de Québec published an article entitled: “Tablettes peu utiles au cégep pour les « finissants du iPad » : ces étudiants observent un décalage lorsqu’ils arrivent au collégial” (“Tablets not so useful in CEGEP for “iPad graduates”; these students notice a gap when they arrive in college”). This is one of the conclusions of a study by the team of Patrick Giroux, a professor at the Université du Québec à Chicoutimi, on the use of a tablet by approximately 80 students, as part of their high school studies. Most of them are now in CEGEP.

A lot of social workers can speak both French and English, but don't speak them both in a nuanced way, appropriately using jargon and slang. Denise Brend has written The English French Guide to Human Services Technology to help resolve this problem. The book was made possible through the development of data processing software that now makes this kind of resource in other fields an exciting possibility as well!

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.
