Facilitate mathematical discussion activities

Are you interested in facilitating mathematical discussions in the classroom, but don't know where to start? Would you like to try the principle of the collabo-reflective classroom? This training will provide you with winning activities and facilitation techniques to use in the classroom to promote mathematical discussion with your students, as well as discover how to integrate digital technology into this type of activity. You will leave with a wealth of digital resources and a sense of empowerment to engage in this type of high-yield educational activity. Depending on the length of the training, we may have time to create and experiment with a few activities.

Evaluate and correct efficiently with Microsoft Forms

This training will allow you to learn about the most interesting features of Microsoft Forms to create an assessment with the guidance of the trainer. This new way of evaluating will charm you and your students! Bring examples of assessments you already have to convert them into Forms during the workshop. Bonus: your students will be able to get quick feedback on your assessment with this tool.

Evaluating differently through participatory evaluation and open-ended creative projects

This workshop presents learning and assessment situations that give students a lot of flexibility. Learn how digital communication and outreach tools can help imagine, create and design unique and creative projects. Then track your students' progress and provide effective feedback. Finally, get students more involved in their assessment process by collecting their perceptions of their learning and that of their peers.

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. 

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.

The digital logbook: a tool to accompany the creation of artistic works

At the end of this "hands on" workshop, teachers will be able to publish digital journal templates for their students to describe their approaches in Skills 1 and 2 in art.

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.

Writing and Digital: Seeing Opportunities from Preschool to Cycle Three

Supporting students in the development of their writing skills requires the mobilization of several resources, depending on the child's level. Indeed, to be able to produce a "written document", the student must apply several distinct knowledge and skills. In this workshop, you will discover how to create activities with several digital tools in order to put your students in action so that they develop their writing skills in a fun and level-appropriate way. 

Leveraging Google Suite Tools (and more!) in Physical Education

Discover the tools used by physical education teacher Annie Moreau to integrate digital technology into her practice. You will also have time to create YOUR ideas for digital content and activities while receiving live coaching.

Assessment for learning: concrete strategies

Reflecting on the theoretical aspects of assessment for learning is important, but how do we apply these principles in the classroom? What tools should be used? Which approaches should be prioritized? This is exactly what this workshop will focus on!

Feedback and evaluation with Google tools

Are you looking to become more effective when giving feedback to your students? Are you looking for a different way to assess? Find out how Google tools can support you in your efforts this year. During the workshop, several examples of activities will be proposed. We will discover innovative pedagogical practices as well as tips on how to use triangulation and learning traces with Classroom, Forms and some automation and merge add-ons.

Automate your processes with Autocrat and Google Forms

Do you know how to create a Google Forms form and have different ideas for classroom use? Now come explore how Autocrat, an add-on module, will allow you to automate your processes, increase your productivity and simplify data collection and analysis.

Documenting learning traces with Google tools

Triangulation of evidence of learning to provide descriptive feedback and support student progress has become an integral part of many teachers' pedagogies. This workshop will explore how different Google tools can help to be more productive and efficient in collecting evidence of learning.

Google Forms 301 - Automation

Do you know how to create a Google Forms and have different ideas for classroom use? Now come explore how add-ons can increase your productivity and simplify data collection and analysis. With add-ons like DocAppender, Autocrat or Form Limiter, forms can become powerful data collection machines!

Google Forms 201: Possible uses

Do you know how to create a Google Forms? Now come explore the different ways forms can be used in an educational context. Whether it's to improve feedback, to get to know your students better, or to obtain data, you'll leave this workshop with at least 20 different implementation ideas for both elementary and secondary school.
