Before we get to the blog tour, some exciting news: we just unveiled a new way to interact with the COETAIL community! Join the COETAIL Community Facebook Group to interact with other educators around the world interested in educational technology & information literacy. Invite current COETAIL-ers, grads and anyone interested in teaching & learning  The group is a place to share, celebrate & ask questions!

Have you had a chance to check out #COETAIL to see the Course 1 posts that COETAIL-ers are highlighting? Take a couple minutes…you won’t be sorry! if you haven’t shared your favorite Course 1 posts or reflections…don’t worry, we’d still love to see them!

We continue to count down to Online 8 by celebrating COETAILers past and present. This week we invite you to share your favorite highlights from Courses 2 and 3 during our first ever COETAIL Blog Tour!

P.S. Have you had a chance to do us a quick favor in order to make sure we’re continually tailoring COETAIL to meet the needs of educators around the world? If you haven’t yet, click here. If you have (THANK YOU!), we’d love for you to share with a colleague or two (!

What might that look like?
  • Share links to your favorite blog posts for each course.
  • Share links to blog posts from other COETAILers that you found yourself nodding to, pushed your thinking, gave you an ah-ha moment, etc.
  • Write a short reflection about the highlighted course/blog post: What were your biggest takeaways? How did it impact your practice? How did student learning in your classroom shift during the course? Don’t think too hard – short and sweet and to the point is best! Think about including {COETAIL Blog Tour} in your post/title.
  • If you share via your COETAIL blog, add the tag ‘Blog Tour‘ so that your (new and old) posts can be easily found from the COETAIL site.
  • Here’s a blurb you could add to your posts or tweek to your style: I love being part of the growing COETAIL community and celebrating the work of educators around the world! During the rest of May, COETAILers will be sharing their favorite moments from their COETAIL experience. Check out #COETAIL on TwitterInstagramFacebookGoogle+ and the COETAIL blog feed to be inspired. Does COETAIL sound like a community you’d like to be a part of? If so, be sure to sign up for updates here.
