    Great work with your Art Students! I teach photography, and blog with my students. If you would like, I can also help to create other classes for your students to engage with!
    Nice work on your project.

    Thanks Louise! I don’t feel that Twitter is bad, I just feel that I often have difficulty with building relationships with people online. I still feel that my PLN experience is one that is building… and Twitter is one avenue.
    I want to have more longer conversations, and hope that my Coetail experience has helped in this.

    I have enjoyed the COETAIL process.  I have loved the reading, and pushing my abilities in presentation.  This process has helped me to work on my weaknesses, and pushed me to try […]

    • What a brilliant idea to use TouchCast for orientation. It is so inspiring to see you and your school grabbing the opportunity to make that time of transition more media rich and dynamic. If I were joining your school, this resource would get me excited to work in an innovative environment. Bravo, this is going to make so many of your soon to be colleagues really pumped to join your staff.

    • Hi Art,
      My online interactions are similar to yours – and I ask the same sort of questions. I wonder if small varied bursts of connectivity have as much value as longer sustained conversations – I would argue they do.

  • Hi There friends!

    I am currently working on planning a Faculty Orientation at my school for a project for my COETAIL course.  This orientation is about Technology and how it works at your school.  Imagine you […]

  • In preparation for my COETAIL final task, I thought it would be great to get some data from staff at my site, to help drive my project forward.  This way, I can better prioritise the “Flipped Orientation” and make […]

    Fantastic Work Angela! Keep up the hard work, I know it is difficult to keep up with the workload of teaching and doing COETAIL… There are many things you can do with your learning in COETAIL on the job, and apply it to outcomes.

    I’ve been working.  But, I’m running a bit late to start posting.  I have been talking to too many individuals at my school to get my project off the ground… […]

    Libraries are wonderful places filled with resources that the average user would never find without the guidance of a Librarian.

    I would look to use the Flipped Model in the Library to create short videos explaining the common, repetitive questions about the library. Or maybe do a getting started with a more confusing resource. Share your…[Read more]

    I was always the kid in the back of math class asking the teacher… why? Why do we need to know this? My math teachers worked directly from the textbook. They worked unit to unit, lesson to lesson, in sequence of the textbook. They never answered my question. They didn’t offer us opportunities to apply the learning to other contexts.

    I…[Read more]

    This is a fantastic concept. I love the use of Minecraft to create a virtual world from their research. Minecraft is a great platform for creating such 3D worlds, with their own rules. I have seen students working in the past using Minecraft to illustrate the setting of a story that they are reading.

    I am assuming that you are looking at…[Read more]

    • Wow! Great, thanks Art. Andria and I are going to try letting the students lead the way on this one. They already are playing it on their iPads so it probably is the pocket edition. And they’ve told us all about other kids being able to visit their world (but no more than 10 at a time, they said). They didn’t mention how to protect their work so…[Read more]

    • Dear Art,
      What a great way to support new teachers, not just to ensure they get well oriented but also to help them understand where they need to go. It is through the orientation itself that teachers could set technology goals for themselves!
      It is such an effective way to provide an orientation to new staff- to flip the orientation itself! What they would have done in school while being pulled in all directions, they can now do at home and in their own time, at their own pace! My school, The British School, New Delhi also recently issued a survey to check the status of technology awareness amongst staff. Our school is expanding and before we begin the process of integration of technology, it is important to identify where teachers stand vis a vis current and basic technology awareness. After the survey, the leadership will identify the technology needs of the staff and then support accordingly.
      Best, Sneh

    Jinane: I saw a similar chart on John Larmer’s post, but it needed some infographic love. I can’t take credit for all of the information, but I felt that the information needed some dressing up. Thank you for your comment.

    I was meeting with a team of teachers brainstorming what their school would look like in 2020.  This team has been developing concepts for a Design Learning […]

    • Each of the PBL approaches you discussed have value and can be used effectively considering the concept being explored, the age of students, the setting, the resources and the time available. I am weary of a single approach being adopted as a framework for everything. A good teacher can use multiple approaches to match the learning needs and styles of individual students.

      I appreciate the infographic you shared in your post. It is the clearest I have seen in showing the commonalities and differences of thetwo PBLs.

    • Hi Art

      I really enjoyed reading your post and putting it in the context of how different grade teachers design their curriculum helped me to understand it better. I teach Year 1 and you have to get the balance right between building confidence with the basics and then encouraging them to apply what they know. They need quite a lot of guidance and modelling but you also have to make sure you give them opportunities to tackle problems independently to see if their application skills have developed.

    Problem based learning. Giving students a context to apply their knowledge about a subject. Why NOT Zombies? This is a fascinating approach to add fun, popular culture, and application of new and old knowledge to a lesson.

    Learning is the best reward. I enjoyed your questioning of the rewards and motivation.

    As a parent, I often struggle with motivtion for my kids. Does it always need to be fun? Can’t someone just do something because they are meant to?

    I don’t have a problem with gameification, but it should not have to be a constant staple of the…[Read more]

    First I’d like you to look at this.  I summarised a post I found on Buzzfeed, which I summarised below into the slides.

    Flipping your Classroom is a great way to change up a workflow, and challenge students. But it has advantages and some interesting […]

    • Art, You have some really valid points here. I have been trying to wrap my head around an attempt to flip, but haven’t managed to make a smooth transition. I have been reaching out to others for ideas, and have found some others doing just what you mentioned. Creating boring videos of themselves. But with that said, we do need resources for students to watch. I am thinking about finding some Tedtalks, or other informational youtube videos. I think it is really important, as you mentioned to keep them under 5. I think this is a good rule when making videos for students and for colleagues. I wish more people would follow this timeline! haha!
