Are you ready to grow as an ISTE Educator this year?
Happy New Year 🎊
We hope that you had a wonderful break and are rejuvenated for another year of learning and growth! In the fall, we introduced you to our microcredential that started it all, the Certificate of Educational Technology and Information Literacy. The COETAIL program, with over 1000 graduates, has recently undergone a standards realignment to the new ISTE Standards to equip today’s educator with the knowledge and skills to impact student learning.
“The ISTE Standards for Educators are your road map to helping students become empowered learners. These standards will deepen your practice, promote collaboration with peers, challenge you to rethink traditional approaches and prepare students to drive their own learning.” (source)
Our Online 11 Cohort begins on January 21 and will be the first cohort to complete their journey with updated courses. At Eduro Learning, we embrace a community approach to learning. We believe that our community is essential to COETAIL’s identity so we’re their voices speak for the program. We compiled all of their testimonials in a blog post series – click below to see how COETAILers grew during their learning journey!
“Learning everything I have during my time in COETAIL has not only increased my knowledge about the best use of educational technology but having this new knowledge has given me the confidence to share my learning at my school. I have helped administer PD to our staff and have also become a tech mentor for other teachers. I even presented at the EDTechGZ conference about teaching digital citizenship in lower elementary. Without COETAIL, I would not have the knowledge or confidence to share my learning in these ways.”
~ Jessica, Online 10 ~
“My own knowledge and understanding of the digital world grew. I was able to learn and share different strategies to help students become responsible digital citizens and use digital resources in a proper and safe way.”
~ Alexander, Online 2, COETAIL 2 ~
“COETAIL is one big happy rhizome of teachers and classrooms. It is its own force of connectedness and allows for educators, classrooms, and students to experience the world. It only took some prompting and knowing how to use the right tools for me to quickly find my voice in other’s classrooms and vice versa. The impact professionally has been the biggest change in my career.”
~ Matt, Online 2 ~
“My classroom has been remodeled to suit my teaching style and beliefs. It’s flexible and accommodates different learning styles. My class LMS pages have a design that is appealing, functional. All visuals I create take into consideration design principles that are also explicitly taught during Course 3, one of my favorites.”
~ Valdir, Online 5, COETAIL 2 ~
“As a facilitator, I help students move along their learning path at their own pace. I know that using Minecraft and coding in the classroom has helped me innovate so students can meet school standards.”
~ Angela, Online 4, COETAIL 2 ~
“The feedback loop that you receive from writing blogs, commenting other’s blogs, and posting publicly for others to provide you with their insights have allowed me to reflect on my teaching, writing, and big ideas.”
~ Nicholas, Online 10 ~
