Producing and Sharing Podcasts



The project


Producing and sharing podcasts presents an up-to-date version of an approach experimented with since 2008. Due to the projects’ popularity and the increase of podcast offers, the Service national du RÉCIT, domaine des langues collaborated with BaNQ to offer a new platform that will host students’ podcasts. It is the opportunity to learn about the steps of the podcast production process, create a product for a real audience and mobilize various knowledge such as:

- Use the inquiry process

- Write an informative text that will be heard

- Produce a podcast

- Share a podcast on the new BaladoWeb platform (BaNQ)



Develop your digital competencies

The podcast genre can present itself in many types of discourse (argument, narration, description, and exposition). Whether it is a narrative or an interview to explain or describe a phenomenon, the possibilities are endless. This online course will focus on the production process of an informative podcast.



A unifying project!


Imagine being able to fully appreciate the urban heritage and many works of art around you, using your mobile device to locate the birthplace of a famous writer or a historic site, or even to do a virtual search of what is right in front of you? Talk about a great opportunity for discovering the diversity of Québec society and its territory!

In collaboration with BAnQ, we are proposing a turnkey project for all the actors in the field of education in Quebec.

Vocabulary Building Using ICT in English as a Second Language

This online course is intended to support English as a second language teachers in the integration of technology in vocabulary building.

We have chosen to present tools that can be used on all devices and are at low or no cost to users.

The objective of this course is not to teach the importance of vocabulary building since ESL teachers already value and use vocabulary building and strategies in their classroom but to integrate technology when it brings added value to their lesson.

Write a review of TKAM. Before starting, read a few of the short reviews from this New York Times article titled The 10 Best Books of 2019.



Here are a few questions that may help you write your review: How does this book begin? Is the ended expected? Do you like this kind of writing? Why or why not? Would you recommend this book to a friend based on what you've read so far?


Your book review should be at least 4 paragraphs long.


When you're finished, upload your article to our online classroom, and I'll post it to our blog. If there's an image you'd like to go with it, send it to me or include it in your document.


2 points


Draw a scene from the book and give it a title. You may choose to depict a scene with multiple characters or none at all. Add a short explanation of why you chose this scene and/or what it means to you.


If you're worried about your art skills...



Remember: I'm not looking for the next Monet.

Write a journal entry for any main character other than Scout. You may want to focus your entry around one of the main events in the novel or a reflection in which the character looks at how they've grown or changed during the course of the story.

Choose 3 characters other than Jem and Scout and create bubble maps (where their names are in a central circle surrounded by other circles labelled with their traits) where you list 5 personality traits for each one.
