    What you see in the video is 95% of their work from start to finish. I think a pretty amazing achievement for a class of 5 and 6 year olds working together for the first time. –

    Kids can do awesome things, can’t they?

    • Hi Rebekah,
      Thanks for your comments. Yes it is amazing what children can do when they are invested in what they are doing. They showed that they thought there was real purpose behind their learning so as a result took complete ownership. It was amazing to be part of.
      Thanks for all your help and support and leadership throughout COETAIL – it…[Read more]

    I love it. I need to do this. Thank you.

  • Rebekah Madrid posted a new activity comment 2 years, 7 months ago

    I like seeing such tangible change in how you participate online and what learning you are engaged in.

    I have really been impressed with all of your contributions to the learning community. I think your comments have always been so thoughtful and a reason to believe that comment sections can be places of great learning and connections.

    LOve it! What a great bunch of people and a really strong reflection about how community can make a good idea even better!

  • Rebekah Madrid posted a new activity comment 2 years, 7 months ago

    What I love about this post is that is shows all the different spaces we can build our PLN! I think it’s pretty normal to drop in and out of different communities and spaces…but there is value is nurturing connections with like-minded people. All the best.

    And I hope you and Megan meet for drinks soon! Face-to-face is so much fun!

    I remember that first blog post! You have really shown how transformative a PLN can be. I think you have outlined a massive change in terms of your online learning. And equally importantly, I think it shows the impact of a teacher’s PLN on student learning. Amazing stuff!

    • Thanks Rebecca. It is much appreciated. It has been such a fantastic journey throughout COETAIL. I have learnt so much from fellow COETAILers and from my PLN. I see my online learning community as a huge part of my Professional Development and I honestly do not know how I would cope with them on a day to day but also in the long term. I really do…[Read more]

    I think you could be such a valuable member of the the world languages learning network. You have so many things to offer the community. It’s been a privilege to watch you become an active member of the community. Thank you for all you contribute.

    • Thanks Rebekah for your encouraging support!
      I have few projects with teachers from my school and from other continent and I’m hoping to be able to share very soon about them!

  • Rebekah Madrid posted a new activity comment 2 years, 8 months ago

    I love this project, I love the grounding in your local context, and I love watching it evolve with the feedback of other teachers. I’m so excited to see the action that is generated out of this. I wish you the best of luck!

    Woah! I’m geeking out on your behalf with the Tony Wagner RT! Great start!

  • Rebekah Madrid posted a new activity comment 2 years, 8 months ago

    I love seeing all of your learning in all the different spaces coming together. And the words of wisdom to take your time is so important. We are building foundations here and we can enjoy the process and the journey. This was an absolutely lovely post…thanks for sharing.

    • Dear Rebekah,

      Thank you so much for your comments. I enjoyed writing this post because it helped me reach clarity about how I could merge all these inspiring pedagogies together to provide meaningful and relevant opportunities for students.
      I am excited about developing this area and collaborating with experts who have already set up these…[Read more]

    Love it!

    Sooo cool! I love the pictures and seeing the kids and you geek out! Did they have to read the instructions in French…what motivation to figure out the language. Love it and can’t wait to hear more!

    • Hello Rebekah,
      Thanks for your comment!
      Yes, instructions were in French! What’s great too was: they already knew a lot of vocabulary. My students were “using” French more than “learning French”! We had such a good time!

  • Rebekah Madrid posted a new activity comment 2 years, 8 months ago

    You know I’m proud of you! And you know that SAMR isn’t a ladder..it’s a spiral. So things that were once R are now A and then we push ourselves back up the spiral. I love the conversations you are having with people and with the way you are combining ideas. And kids blogging about improved learning is HUGE. Never underestimate the impact on…[Read more]

    • Hi!!!
      Thank you Rebekah for getting back to me and calming my nervous energy- I feel good about this and know this is just the first step. I can’t wait to implement everything else as we proceed through the year. Slowly but surely.

    Good to see you blogging again!! Can’t wait to see how the year goes!

    • Hello Rebekah. Thank you. Transitioning into this mode again was much easier than I had anticipated. Looking forward to getting good results from this project. I appreciate the support. Best wishes. Chris

    I am so sorry for your loss. I hope your communities, where ever they are, give a little comfort.

    I love Twitter in the classroom. I haven’t fully figured out how to get kids on board, but I think it has so much potential.

    Here are a couple of things I did with my DP History kids that could easily adapted for I&S. : Live Tweeting a History Class: https://rebekahmadrid.wordpress.com/2015/03/20/live-tweeting-a-history-class/

    Such a thoughtful lesson plan. I love how much freedom you are giving your kids to explore things that interest them. I think this is such a lovely idea that really does address so many of the big ideas we have studied in COETAIL. I really can’t wait to see how it goes! Good luck!

    • Hello Rebekah,
      Thank you for your comment! I can’t wait either to see what ideas my students will come up with.
      Have a great summer!

    I wonder if you can take some pics of how your kids use tech and share it with the parents. I’m sure they’ll see kids use tech in all sorts of ways and in a classroom, it is rarely passive.

    Thanks for such a great reflection.
