This fall, we’re realigning our courses 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)

We’re also working with the University of Kentucky to align our courses to include overlapping assignments, allowing you to grow as both an Educator and an Education Leader

The ISTE Standards for Education Leaders support the implementation of the ISTE Standards for Students and the ISTE Standards for Educators and provide a framework for guiding digital age learning. These standards target the knowledge and behaviors required for leaders to empower teachers and make student learning possible. They’re focused on some of the most timely, yet enduring, topics in education today – equity, digital citizenship, visioneering, team and systems building, continuous improvement and professional growth. (source)

Bonus: Our partnership gives you the opportunity to stack graduate certificates on your way to your Master’s in Education (or even Ph.D.!) from a Research 1 university.

The first ISTE Standard in our series is Learner:

ISTE Standards for Educators // Learner
Educators continually improve their practice by learning from and with others and exploring proven and promising practices that leverage technology to improve student learning. Educators:
1a.
Set professional learning goals to explore and apply pedagogical approaches made possible by technology and reflect on their effectiveness.
1b.
Pursue professional interests by creating and actively participating in local and global learning networks.
1c.
Stay current with research that supports improved student learning outcomes, including findings from the learning sciences.

Eduro Learning embraces a community approach to learning. We believe that our community is essential to COETAIL’s identity so we are letting their voices speak for the program. Below, COETAILers share how they grew as Learners during their journey.

I realized through COETAIL that knowledge can be constructed through a shared communally developed understanding. The COETAIL experience is not a professional learning opportunity that ends when the courses are complete. In reality, the strength of COETAIL is that the courses are the primer and the time afterward is the main event. Being pushed as an adult learner is important to me, and although the COETAIL program afforded me opportunities in which I was able to learn and employ that learning in my classroom the next day, it is so much more – what I would call a “long learn.” Matt

The community approach to learning allowed me to realize the importance of collaborating with others as well as creating and sustaining authentic global connections with like-minded educator around the world. Nicholas

There are many examples of improved practice(s) and learning from/with other COETAILers but I’d highlight the complete remodel of my class that discussed on Extreme Makeover: Classroom Edition, my final project on Blended Learning as well as the work I’ve done with another Cohort member on digital storytelling with Traveling Tales.
