We’re realigning our courses to the new ISTE Standards to equip today’s educator with the knowledge & skills to impact student learning. This realignment allows us to continue to improve the COETAIL experience while staying true to our ethos. The themes of COETAIL Courses 3 & 4 are Visual Communication and Learner-Driven Instruction. Focusing on developing as Collaborators, Designers, and Facilitators, COETAILers report that these are 2 of their favorite courses.

“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 collaborating with the University of Kentucky to align our courses to include overlapping assignments, allowing you to grow as both an Educator and an Education LeaderScroll down for more information on our partnership with the University of Kentucky and a peek at the combined learning journey. Did you know that registration for Online 11 is open?! Don’t miss out on this transformational learning journey!

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 next ISTE Standard in our series is Facilitator:

ISTE Standards for Educators // Facilitator
Educators facilitate learning with technology to support student achievement of the ISTE Standards for Students. Educators:
6a.
Foster a culture where students take ownership of their learning goals and outcomes in both independent and group settings.
6b.
Manage the use of technology and student learning strategies in digital platforms, virtual environments, hands-on makerspaces or in the field.
6c.
Create learning opportunities that challenge students to use a design process and computational thinking to innovate and solve problems.
6d.
Model and nurture creativity and creative expression to communicate ideas, knowledge or connections.

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 Facilitators during their journey.

The interactiveness of the courses allowed me to remove myself from the center point and learn how to work with others in a group, no matter the distance, in order to deliver quality projects that have the best intentions for student learning.

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.

I was able to look over the Primary curriculum to find the areas, by collaborating with other teachers, to create technology-rich learning environments where students could most benefit from technology integration.

I have in mind the ISTE standards although they’re not a requirement in my school. Since we are an MYP school I often try to link these standards with the ATLs used in my units.

Shifting Our Schools Podcast

In Episode 68 of the Shifting our Schools podcast, Jeff & I connected with John Nash (Associate Professor and Department Chair for the Department of Educational Leadership Studies at the University of Kentucky) to discuss how universities are changing to meet the needs of educators.

We spent some time talking about the changes happening at the university level and dove deeper into our new partnership with our stackable certificates that can lead to a Master’s Degree or even Ph.D. Listen here!

In Episode 69 of the Shifting our Schools podcast, Chrissy, Kim, and Jeff take time out to reflect on how three teachers who happened to teach at the same time at an international school in Bangkok end up where they are today. The history of COETAIL and how everything snowballed into Eduro Learning. An unexpected journey with student learning at the center. Listen here!
