I’ve been sitting on this post for a while. Not quite ready to put it out there and admit that we are done! What an incredible learning journey it has been for me and (I hope) for all of the participants of the Online 10 cohort. I encourage you to take a moment to read back through your first course posts and compare them with your posts throughout this course. So much confidence and knowledge and expertise have been shared. Global collaborations are a walk in the park and online tools like Padlet, Flipgrid, Seesaw, and Socrative are being used with such incredible intention and fluency. The title of course 5 is “Alive in the Classroom” and it is clear from your projects that technology is alive in your classrooms (and media/library spaces) and that your classrooms come to life as a direct result of your intentional and thoughtful technology implementation.
The Final Projects
Here are the final projects from Course 5 – each of them is an excellent and engaging example of technology in action. Also on display are some impressive sound editing, visual literacy, and stop motion skills!
Thank you for your COETAIL dedication
I want to take this moment to thank each of you for all of your hard work over the last eighteen months. I hope that this has been a powerful learning experience for you and you have developed and practised new technology skills that will continue to help you and your students. Please continue to share your teaching and learning through you PLNs and keep an eye on the #COETAIL and #EduroLearning hashtags on Twitter.
Best of luck for the remainder of the school year – the countdown to summer is on! My wife and I are moving to Hong Kong in the summer and I look forward to the opportunity to perhaps meet some of you in real life over the next few years!
