    Hi Shannon,

    The program runs from Sept 2016 to December 2017. It’s 1.5 years to go through all 5 courses. We just started yesterday (September 5th) so you’re not too late to join!

  • Woohoo! You did it! Course 5 is complete and you are finished with the COETAIL program!

    It’s hard to believe it’s already over, and how much you have all been able to accomplish in only a year and a half. Of […]

    Hi Kathy,

    Very clear intro to your project. Love the clips of students in action, and the pictures from your classroom! (I only wish the audio was a little louder). It would have been great to see your examples of explanation videos that you reference in your video for the intro for Round 2 too 🙂

    My big question in general about this…[Read more]

    It’s all a journey, right? Love your idea of an online night for PD! I agree that the more time and energy you devote to that part of your learning, the more you will get out of it!

    Love the framework for this post! So glad things are going so well – and so wonderful to hear how much of an impact you’re having on your teaching colleagues as well!

    Hi Nicola,

    Love the intro to you and where you’re living at the moment – a nice way to start your video and set context!

    I love the conversation with your students! It would be great to have some reflection from them based on what they’ve already done – rather than a general conversation about technology in the classroom / future plans (al…[Read more]

    Love your introduction, Becca! Great use of photos and text, alongside your narration to make your video super engaging and easy to follow. The structure in your video also makes it exceptionally easy to follow and understand. I like the images from your classroom with the student quotes. Love the sample video – and so great to see and hear those…[Read more]

    Love all the pictures and videos from your classroom Lisa! It’s great to see how you scaffolded the sharing of book buzzing – from local community to global. Great strategy of using video to deal with the time difference, as well as using pallet to communicate! So great to see how much the students enjoyed the experience of connecting with other c…[Read more]

    YES! “It is about pushing the bar and trying out new ideas, but instead of thinking about what has been already conceived out there on a global scale, consider what was previously inconceivable for YOU! ” Exactly!

    I love the mix of hands on and technology in this project! So appropriate to the grade level and the essential questions you were…[Read more]

    Woohoo! Well done Jennifer! So exciting to see you make the switch from participant to presenter! I hope you let us know how it goes!

  • Kim Cofino posted a new activity comment 2 years, 11 months ago

    Awesome! I love your fun intro, and how you overcame the challenge of switching projects mid course! It was great to see examples of student learning, as well as conversations in class with students! It’s so great to see the way you (and the students) used comments to really push and develop their thinking – such a great use of VoiceThread! And…[Read more]

    Woohoo! I LOVE it! Thank you so much for continuing to challenge yourself, to take risks and to be open minded to learning new things. This is what COETAIL is all about!

  • Kim Cofino posted a new activity comment 2 years, 11 months ago

    First of all, I love the glasses! I sure hope it wasn’t all the online time that made your eyes worse, but I think they look great!

    Second, thank you so much for such a thoughtful, personal and authentic review of your COETAIL experience. We know it’s tons of work and all of our COETAILers put in so much time. It’s so amazing to read your…[Read more]

    I love it! Can’t wait to see how this goes!

  • Wow, it’s been a busy first semester and the time has just flown by! I know you are all working hard on finishing up your Course 5 work so here is a brief update:

    Woohoo! You are such a superstar! It’s so great to read all about these connections – both in person and digital. You are building that PLN that will keep you connected, no matter where you go, as long as you continue to share!

  • Kim Cofino posted a new activity comment 2 years, 11 months ago

    I LOVE it! I love it because you’re coming at this from both a parenting and teaching perspective, and I love it because you’re not talking about loosing what’s great, but about bringing in other elements that are relevant to today’s students. Fantastic!

  • Kim Cofino posted a new activity comment 2 years, 11 months ago

    Woohoo! I love hearing about your journey here! I love that you are so open and honest with where you were, where you are and why you have this perspective. I’m an out-loud thinker too, and I sometimes find that it takes me a while to decide what’s worth sharing in social spaces. Often, if there’s no one else there, I’ll think about something for…[Read more]

    Outstanding! I love that you are connecting outside the COETAIL community! Of course, it’s great to support our newbies in Course 1 and 2, but it’s even more wonderful to make those connections that are meaningful to you and will transform learning in your classroom. Well done!

    I love the bulletin board! And it’s so great to see you taking this project to a global level!
