Congratulations! You did it!
Wow we made it! Online 12 can now take a breather and be proud of finishing off Course 5 with a bang. I was so impressed by the dynamic and original projects created and shared during what might be the most unusual 15 months any of us have ever lived through.
You are the first COETAIL Cohort to start and end your the course in the midst of Pandemic. We have all had to be flexible in our professional lives as we transitioned from in person, to virtual, to hybrid on multiple occasions. Personally, too, we have felt the effects of not being able to get back “home” and spend time with family and loved ones. I can’t express how impressed I am with your ability to change plans on short notice and take on entirely new learning contexts at the same time as completing COETAIL.
Innovative Final Projects
- CARP and Visual Literacy
- Self- Advocacy
- Authentic Audience
- Student Action
- Intuitive use of Technology to redefine T&L
AND so much more… I urge you to watch each other’s projects if you have not had a chance to do so yet. We learn so much from each other and a ten minute video and a read of a blog post can really get us thinking about things differently. Don’t forget making a comment will also make someone’s day!
Creating and recording final projects took on exciting pathways this year because of the manner in which schools have been operating. While this has been challenging at times the creativity and depth of your projects were not affected. COETAILers partnered with learning teams at a distance using multiple forms of technology, while connecting with students in both synchronous and asynchronous ways. Here are just a few examples from the amazing COETAIL Course 5 projects:
Andrea Goodrich’s project focused on empowering students through Choice, Voice and Action. Students chose a social issue using the UN’s SDG’s, researched about their topic and then wrote and performed TED Talk’s for audience.
