Published February 9, 2016  |  Multidisciplinary

Murielle Cayouette Teacher, Collège O'Sullivan de Québec

Written from the standpoint of a teacher, the "5 Tips" series is intended to be a helpful resource for teachers who are integrating technology into their everyday practice. In college teaching, heterogeneous classes where students and diverse personalities converge are the norm. This reality is also evident when observing the different ways that they react to technology. In this article, I identify 5 situations in which students might have more difficulty when faced with technology. I also suggest a few options on how to provide them with assistance.

Creativity as a Tool for Learning Science

Published May 18, 2014  |  Chemistry

Jailson Farias De Lima Teacher, Vanier College

Deeply rooted in rationality, the Sciences have historically been placed in opposition to the Arts, a field in which creativity is recognized as playing a key role. The false dichotomy that “artists are not analytical and scientists are not creative” was engraved in the foundations of our educational system, but information technology is being used to break down these barriers. A number of my cross-disciplinary courses use asynchronous communication to give students a better understanding of both sides of these polarities.

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.
