DALC | Cool Technology for Active Learning: Using MyDalite as a Peer Instruction tool
March 13 @ 10:00 - 11:15
Peer Instruction is an evidence-based active learning strategy that dramatically improves conceptual learning and promotes deep thinking by getting students to engage in targeted conversations with their peers in the classroom. MyDALITE is a computer application that reproduces the Peer Instruction process asynchronously so that teachers can extend the benefits of Peer Instruction beyond the walls of the classroom. In MyDALITE students answer teacher-set questions, rationalize their answers and then interact with other students rationals before re-assessing their own answers through a browser, Moodle or other Learning Management System. MyDALITE was developed at Dawson by the SALTISE research teamhas been used in disciplines like English, Physics, History, Ethics, Chemistry, Biology and more, and it has been used accross a number of cegeps and universities, including McGill, Harvard and MIT. It is easy to use and free. This workshop will introduce participants to MyDALITE and allow them to start using it in their classes right away.
