Coeducation in the digital age: Accompanying young people towards an ethical use of screens

During this training, the participants will be in the exchange and the action in order to develop their relationship of coeducation in the digital era. They will be equipped to propose to parents the use of a parent-child contract. In this way, the actions implemented at school will be supported by those of the parents at home. The parent-child contract promotes the establishment of positive rules of life in the digital age and acts on the autonomy of young people towards healthy lifestyle habits.

Evaluating differently: how to support your school team

Evaluation is a hot topic these days! Come and hear about the successes and challenges of Sylvie Boutin, former principal of l'Accueil de Scott, a flagship school of the CAR project, whose team changed the way she sees and applies evaluation in her environment. What to put in place? How to support teachers in their situation? How do you prepare parents for such a change? And as a manager, what posture should I adopt? This is an appointment to discuss with a passionate person who, through her experience, will be able to help you initiate the change too!

Using the iPad to teach science

The iPad tablet is a must-have tool for teaching and learning science in elementary and secondary schools. A host of free, native apps allow teachers and students to observe scientific phenomena, collect data, analyze it, and share it. In this workshop, participants will experience science activities that they can then better pilot or adapt for their students. Thanks to the portability of the tablet, students and teachers can be active learners, both in the real and figurative sense!

Digital tools for high school math

Come and discover tools such as Desmos Classroom, Polypad, Geogebra, Wooclap, Phet, Cabri Express, tools from the NCTM Illuminations site, Tinkercad, Formative, Graspable Math, ThatQuiz, etc. This training will take a closer look at the most interesting features and the trainer's favorites to take high school math teaching and learning to another level!

Evaluating and keeping track of math with digital technology

What digital tools can be used to assess learning in math? Why keep track of learning in math? What are effective strategies for doing so? Are grids really necessary? What digital applications make it easy to keep track? What kinds of tasks can be assessed with digital technology? This training offers interesting ways to answer these questions while allowing to see concrete examples and to experiment with the different tools proposed.

Desmos Classroom in high school math

Desmos is a free activity creation tool that allows you to track students in real time. The teacher dashboard allows you to highlight and connect the creations of the class. View, capture screens, and share student learning as it develops, pause an activity, manage the pace of the class, and anonymize student contributions to help make discussions more effective and fun. Provide real-time feedback to your students and allow them to submit their creations by sending photos of their work or an audio recording. 

Promote the uniqueness of each person with Pages

When you put an iPad in the hands of a student, an infinite world of possibilities opens up. Indeed, it can become an ally in helping them learn more about themselves as learners. In particular, the Pages application, included with the device, allows them to create a variety of documents that are both in their image and that faithfully demonstrate what they have learned. Creativity, multiple possibilities and uniqueness will be the main orientations of this inspiring training!

Visual note-taking with the native tools of the iPad

Offer your students a different way to demonstrate their understanding of a concept and make their learning visible through visual note-taking strategies. The use of free and accessible digital tools available on the iPad allows you to go even further by encouraging the co-construction of solid links. Thus, sketch-note, concept diagrams and image collages are all creative and flexible techniques that will be discussed in this workshop. A strategy that will appeal to a large number of people!

Creating manipulative activities in mathematics: what place for digital?

At the end of this workshop, elementary and junior high school teachers will have constructed mathematical activities to use immediately with their students and will have the tools to collect evidence of learning.

Creation of correction grids for criterion-based evaluation

This hands-on workshop provides an opportunity to work on the development of evaluation rubrics. Participants will leave with not only a deeper understanding of criterion-referenced assessment, but also with a tool they can use in their next assessment activity.

Professional judgment and backward planning

At the end of a step, the teacher aims to make a professional judgment about the students' level of proficiency. A very effective way to do this is through backward planning of learning tasks: Plan for types of assessment; Implementing feedback to support learning; Use effective teaching strategies; Formulate, communicate and use instructional intent.

Pedagogical intent at the heart of learning assessment

By clearly establishing what our students need to learn, communicating it to them, and putting assessment in the service of learning, we can put tools in place to foster learner engagement. This training will address backward planning, exit profiling, and the creation of digital grading rubrics, which is possible using Microsoft Teams in particular, but also with other tools.

Effective feedback to your students

The relationship between the teacher and his or her students is undoubtedly the most important thing. Based on this premise, this workshop will provide effective tools for useful, specific and caring feedback in the classroom.

By the end of this workshop, you will have organized your Teams environment using effective management of your Classroom Notebook. Discover how to effectively organize yourself in this environment to manage groups, resources and collect evidence of learning both in class and remotely!

Educational video creation and publication workshop

Take the time to learn how to efficiently prepare video clips for your students with simple equipment and publish them on a YouTube channel (or other!). After this workshop, you'll know how to write the script (keep it short!), set up for filming (tips and tricks!) and adjust the broadcast settings (for the class or the rest of the world?). Come and create your (first?) video vignette for your students during this sprint! Choose your optimal broadcast model and learn some filming basics along the way!

Evaluation, feedback and ICT

Creating a new learning task also requires planning for assessment and feedback, which are essential to think about before bringing it to life for students. This creative training allows you to discover a variety of digital tools that will allow you to do this, while reviewing some theoretical elements related to the concepts of evaluation and feedback.
