Read more about how COETAILers embody the standards here! [/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version="4.7.7"]

We’re realigning our courses to the new ISTE Standards to equip today’s educator with the knowledge & skills to impact student learning. This realignment allows us to continue to improve the COETAIL experience while staying true to our ethos. The themes of COETAIL Courses 3 & 4 are Visual Communication and Learner-Driven Instruction. Focusing on developing as Collaborators, Designers, and Facilitators, COETAILers report that these are 2 of their favorite courses.

“The ISTE Standards for Educators are your road map to helping students become empowered learners. These standards will deepen your practice, promote collaboration with peers, challenge you to rethink traditional approaches and prepare students to drive their own learning.” (source)

We reached out to our COETAIL alumni to better understand how they grew during the COETAIL program.

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text disabled_on="on|on|on" _builder_version="4.7.7" disabled="on"]We're also collaborating with the University of Kentucky to align our courses to include overlapping assignments, allowing you to grow as both an Educator and an Education LeaderScroll down for more information on our partnership with the University of Kentucky and a peek at the combined learning journey.

Eduro Learning embraces a community approach to learning. We believe that our community is essential to COETAIL’s identity so we are letting their voices speak for the program. Below, COETAILers share how they grew as Collaborators during their journey.

I've virtually met and collaborated with people from all over the world that have inspired me to try new things and take bigger risks. Sometimes a question, a Tweet, or a blog post will open my eyes to possibilities for my own classroom or my own learning journey. [/et_pb_testimonial][et_pb_testimonial author="Matt" job_title="Online 2" url="https://twitter.com/Mr_McGrady" url_new_window="on" portrait_url="https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/473830876472569857/1AT06PhB_400x400.jpeg" admin_label="Testimonial Matt" _builder_version="3.17.1" saved_tabs="all"]COETAIL is one big happy rhizome of teachers and classrooms. It is its own force of connectedness and allows for educators, classrooms, and students to experience the world. It only took some prompting and knowing how to use the right tools for me to quickly find my voice in other's classrooms and vice versa. The impact professionally has been the biggest change in my career. Course 5 Project - Art students quad-blogging and offering feedback about work in progress.

During our year-level meetings, I was able to collaborate with year-level teachers to enrich their lessons with different technology tools to improve and deepen the teaching and their students' learning.

I also collaborate with my PLN to develop ideas and share tools and experiences. In class, my students collaboratively write, speak, and peer-assess. They're more independent and I see an increased level of engagement and learning.
