Are you part of The Conversation?

The Conversation Canada is part of the global network The Conversation. Since its launch in Australia in 2011, The Conversation has spread across the world: France, Great Britain, United States, Indonesia, Africa, Spain and Canada. A team of journalists is based in Montreal and has been working for two years in collaboration with universities and research institutes across the country in order to disseminate their knowledge and expertise to as many people as possible, thus countering the phenomenon of fake news. 

In a spirit of sharing knowledge, La Conversation allows collaborators to republish some of its articles. You should therefore see some of their articles appear more and more regularly in the (virtual) pages of the École branchée.

And since the journalistic coverage of The Conversation goes far beyond the education sector, we invite you to subscribe to their newsletter to be well informed.

New site for teachers in physical education and health

Something new in the CSS de Laval digital kit 

The RÉCIT team at the Center de services scolaire de Laval has produced, in collaboration with the disciplinary pedagogical advisers, two new sections for webinars: 

Read on the RIRE website

A team of American researchers looked at applications for learning literacy and mathematics to determine whether they have effects on the learning of preschool and elementary-aged children. Their conclusion? "High quality educational applications can have beneficial effects in supporting children's literacy and math skills."

The answer? It depends! Indeed, not all e-books are created equal in terms of their effects on vocabulary learning or reading comprehension. When an eBook is only accompanied by narration and a visual indicator of narrative progress, the paper book produces better effects seen in children. However, when it comes to vocabulary learning, eBooks have better impacts, especially for those who understand a dictionary.

In closing, enjoy the sun!

See you soon! Until then, don't hesitate to “tag” us (in good French…) on Twitter (@millaudrey or @riomarti) so that we can talk about your project / resource in a future review of the week! Have a great weekend!
