It can become boring for the pupils to multiply the exercises in order to deepen certain knowledge. The LearningApps platform offers an opportunity for teachers to make practice more enjoyable by allowing them to create or reuse interactive and varied exercises. Here are its main features.
As a teacher, we like to vary the activities offered to students (quiz, identification, classification, short answer, process, etc.). With digital, in class or remotely, it's child's play! Ghislain Mireault, Secondary 5 teacher in the social world at Académie Lafontaine, introduces us to the Pear Deck tool, which makes Google Slides and PowerPoint slideshows interactive, in addition to offering interesting monitoring and feedback options.
Not so long ago, when I was told about a “flexible classroom,” I imagined a classroom filled with balloons, high tables and tulip chairs. I imagined a class where the student could choose his seat. It ended there.
During the last CréaCamp, the workshop in which I participated allowed me to develop a more current and adapted vision of evaluation, which must be at the service of learning and not the other way around.
On August 16, the CréaCamp Ottawa was held in an original place to say the least: a sugar shack! About thirty education professionals gathered at the Muséoparc de Vanier to explore, discover, reflect on and develop new educational approaches.
November 1, 2018, I participated in my first CréaCamp of the École branchée. Tuesday April 30, 2019, I board a second time in my car, accompanied by a colleague this time. At 9 a.m., the starting shot was given. I am crowned "CréaCampeur VIP" and given a gift card. I am so moved by this thought.
What I like most about the CréaCamp training offered by the École branchée is the tolerance that I have to develop in the face of my educational discomfort. What a privilege to give yourself time for creation! This is what I experienced, once again, during Marie-Andrée Ouimet d'EscouadeÉDU's workshop on the sketchnote.
