    Screencastify is fast becoming a fav “go-to” tool for me – it’s especially good for schools with chromebooks AND it can videos directly to Google Drive. This makes it super easy to share with people (aka your teacher) which makes it even more perfect for quick video reflections!

    Thanks for sharing how you use it and reiterating how easy it is to use!

  • Can you believe it? We’re almost done!
    One last task to complete ….. giving peer feedback.

    “exciting, and meaningful way to engage in continuous and sustainable conversations with colleagues from near and far”

    NAILED it! Exactly what we hope you get from having a PLN!

    Keep sharing – it’s worth it in the long run believe me! Especially true when you ask your PLN for something one day – the result may surprise you. It does take time and it does take effort. It’s like that old saying “you get out what you put in”. 🙂 And YOU do have loads to share that others can really benefit from!

    I am really looking forward to learning more about your final project in your video Lindsay especially how it all goes with Google Sites – I’ve always felt that the power of google sites as a classroom tool has been a little under-rated so I’m really hoping that your final project inspires others to give it a go! All the best!

  • Hi awesome AIS-R COETAILers,
    Not to freak you out but …
    …the due date is looming. Everything is due on April 23.

    I am such a huge fan of blogging in the classroom! Especially as a way to provide parents with a window into our class and their child’s learning. It made communication between home and school so much easier and so much more interactive too! It wasn’t all roses and sunshine and it took a lot of hard work to help parents understand the value of…[Read more]

    • I totally hear you on all your comments! As a teacher who blogs, and a parent who reads the blogs written by own children’s teachers I feel a lot more connected with their learning by those who are making use of this tool. Living in Saudi often makes it difficult for parents to know what the learning is looking like. The blog means its all at…[Read more]

    From one introvert to another I applaud you for your efforts and totally get where you are coming from.
    I also admire that you have shared that you recognise you often hold back from sharing because you fear that you’re not offering anything new, useful or ground-breaking. I have the same fear all the time and it affects me the same way it…[Read more]

    • Thanks so much for the inspiration, Chrissy! I love the video. I will do my best to overcome my fear and keep making the effort to share. I have benefitted so much from what others have offered, so I guess the least I can do is try to contribute as well. 🙂

    Very exciting! Especially given the amount of student-choice. I’m excited to see how this unfolds in your final project video. Well done you for taking a risk!

    Such an informative post Bettina, and obviously a topic that you are quite passionate about. Thank you for sharing such valuable information.

    I am really looking forward to seeing how your final project for Course 5 goes Pamela! How exciting to have a completely new unit to go with! The best advise I can give you is document, document, document (eg: video interview students, colleagues you’re working with, take lots and lots of photos) – it really will make putting together your final…[Read more]

    • Hi Chrissy! Thanks for the advice. This will be the first time I really put something together like this, so I am hoping for the best and taking all of the advice that I can get 🙂

  • Chrissy H posted a new activity comment 1 year, 8 months ago

    Building a valuable website with students (especially when they will be creating the content) is very exciting! I can’t wait to see how the learning journey with your students goes – don’t forget to document, document, document! (Believe me when I say it will make putting together your final video so much easier!) All the best to you and your students!

  • You made it to the last and final course of the CoETaIL program! I’m very excited to be on this final leg of your CoETaIL journey with you!
