How do COETAILers grow as Facilitators?
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’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 Leader. Scroll down for more information on our partnership with the University of Kentucky and a peek at the combined learning journey. Did you know that registration for Online 11 is open?!

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 Facilitators during their journey.
The interactiveness of the courses allowed me to remove myself from the center point and learn how to work with others in a group, no matter the distance, in order to deliver quality projects that have the best intentions for student learning.Nicholas
As a facilitator, I help students move along their learning path at their own pace. I know that using Minecraft and coding in the classroom has helped me innovate so students can meet school standards.Angela
I was able to look over the Primary curriculum to find the areas, by collaborating with other teachers, to create technology-rich learning environments where students could most benefit from technology integration.Alex
I have in mind the ISTE standards although they’re not a requirement in my school. Since we are an MYP school I often try to link these standards with the ATLs used in my units.Valdir
