    Thanks for reading Jeff! I love the question “What is your container?” I imagine an jpg of a stack of tupperware next to a pile of digital tools (all of which are wildly exaggerated in size) and then you are faced with the challenge of picking just enough tools to support the learning and the container that will fit them all in it! Might see if I…[Read more]

    • Love it….I always phrase this as; “What is your container?”

      We need a container to store and show all this stuff. There are so many ways to do it. Google Sites…if you are a Google Apps school is a great way to do it. The most important part I think when choosing a container is to know what it’s limitations are and be OK with them. All tools have limitations instead of looking at what it can do…look at what it can’t do and if you’re OK with that..then it’s the tool for you.

Might see if I can create that image!

    • Thanks for sharing this, Ange. Actually, I have never heard of this model before. It makes great sense to incorporate what is happening on the students’ level—-including data on their progress and feedback from them, to drive the “teacher-coach”-ing process.

    Thanks Vivian! I was trying to think of a way to highlight my community involvement while still keeping all of the links alive – Storify was perfect! It doesn’t embed all that well and looks better on the storify page (I actually love the mobile interface) but it ended up working really well! No worries about the missed Hangout opportunity – it…[Read more]

    • Hi Ange

      Congratulations on finishing your final project and finishing Coetail.

      It must not have been easy moving into a different position in the middle of Coetail and right before the start of course 5. I like the “pathway to success” image you posted in your post. Life happens and nothing is ever straightforward the way we imagine them in our minds, beforehand.

      Thank you for sharing with us how a blended learning environment might look like in an IBDP math classroom. You have shown us it is possible for everyday teachers to design their own.

      I like the goal of your blended learning environment that students can go through a personalized program of learning at their own pace. At the same time, they help compile math explanation videos to give other students resources to include in their blended learning environment. This is making your job easier, over time. Clever! I hope you share these videos in a playlist so that teachers around the world can use them too.

      Thanks for your “Tech in a Minute” tutorials, as well. Maybe they will be part of a blended learning PD environment, one day 😉 I can’t believe you were a newbie at making movies before Coetail. It is not obvious at all. You’re a real pro at it now and I love the funny quirky tone of the tutorials. (LOL @ the closing credits…you and your coffee cup!)

      Congrats again on finishing! It’s been great following your progress. Your school sounds like a very innovative school pioneering the edges of good practice with technology (You have LangWitches there!). The fact that Coetail was valuable to you says lots about the program. That’s good for Coetail to know.

      Have a great summer and I look forward to seeing you around the PLN!

  • ThumbnailBeing intentional about my social media use has been a nice little side project for me throughout this semester. In general I have no problems wasting away the hours on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter but I have […]

    • Hi Ange!

      All I can say is WOW! I love the way that you curated your PLN connections via Storify. I have only seen it used with Tweets, and I am super impressed that it can also embed blogs and it comes out looking pretty sharp!

      Hmm, I think we should require all Coetail grads to curate their Coetail Community Engagement via Storify. It works so well. cc @jutecht @mscofino

      Also, what a great idea to post your twitter analytics and Klout score as evidence. There is very little hiding behind that. I didn’t know about twitter analytics. I had better not check as I have a feeling the arrow would go off my computer screen hee hee. I spend too much time on twitter. 😀

      Guess what? I also struggle with G+. I only have it for Coetail reasons. I figure it’s better to concentrate on the medium that works for you. It’s better to do well on one medium vs. poorly at several mediums.

      I definitely see you as one of the engaged and connected Coetailers, so no worries there! It’s a bit more difficult for you as your timezone in South America makes it extra difficult. Taking that into account, I think you’ve been super connected with the Coetail Community.

      I noticed while scrolling thru your storify that you tweeted and invited me to a G+ hangout. Oh dear, I missed seeing that tweet. I had just finished presenting at a conference and my twitter notifications went sky-high around that time, so I didn’t even see it. I’m so sorry about that! I would have loved to have had a G+ hangout with you over your project.

      Thanks again for showing me “Storify” in a way that I’ve never seen. Well done!

No worries about the missed Hangout opportunity – it was a crazy couple of weeks back there! Hopefully we will get another chance to meet virtually (or IRL) one day soon!!!

        Thanks again for all of your support – wouldn’t have made it without you!!!

    It all started off well and then the IB deadlines started to roll in and time began to disappear. Lots of learning was done by me…

    I’ve enough reflecting to be able to get the final project done but it didn’t really go as planned…

    • Hi Ange

      Well, the great thing is that the project is just as much about process as product. If you have some good reflections on what happened and what you might want to change for next time, that makes for a great Final Project too. 🙂

    Thanks for watching!

    I was nervous to put these out there at first because they are so cheesy and I was worried that people wouldn’t see that that was intentional. Turns out that my teachers are laughing and learning all the way with me! I’m starting to get some requests now too!

    Hi Paul,

    Thanks for watching them!

    I started them out as a little gimmick and I am getting really good feedback. For most people the 60 seconds or so is enough to give them the push to try it out by themselves, and then some teachers seek me out for some more help. The next few that I have lined up are direct responses to some needs that I…[Read more]
