Always happy to blaze a trail!
Looking forward to learning from your efforts, as well. Good Luck!
Now that I have successfully completed the COETAIL program, I feel compelled to blog!
I already find myself anticipating the next course…only there isn’t one.
Really? No full Master’s or PhD? Wouldn’t it […]

Wow! What a phenomenal learning experience your COETAIL project has provided for your students! I really loved the introduction and the inquiry questions that you used to “pushing your thinking.” This […]

FINALLY!!!! I am very pleased to announce that I got the COETAIL final project monkey off my back! I refer to it as a monkey in the most affectionate of manners. This was a really long process. The first step […]
The week of March 3…fully booked during teaching time to record Individual Oral Assessments.
The awkward part of a week of Orals is that only one or two students become the focal point of my attention […]
Thanks for your thoughts! I definitely hear what you’re saying in this comment. Coincidentally, math is an area where handwriting continues to impact scores. In the IB’s Middle Years Programme, the Math […]
Thanks for you comment!I read your blog post about handwriting and totally agree with the idea that technology shouldn’t necessarily replace handwriting, nor should we fight for handwriting over […]
Thanks, Tara! I would be interested in some recommended reading on Gen Xers vs. Gen Yers (if you know of any). As a Gen Xer, I definitely see myself on the innovation and creativity side of the spectrum. This […]
Great observations, Stacie!
My husband and I are fairly capable of troubleshooting many tech issues. What’s more, we kind of enjoy it…until it begins consuming the better part of a day! However, that said, […]
Handwriting! What is it good for? Absolutely nothing????? Well, it seems to be good for producing tears.
Crazy conversation this morning with a colleague that began as a discussion about my 10th grade son’s […]
Christina Botbyl wrote a new post, The evolving UbD plan for my COETAIL course 5 final project, on the site Yet Another Blog 2 months ago
I think that I have finally committed to a final tech integration project for COETAIL course 5. I feel like I have been flitting around from one idea to another really unable to settle on something solid. In […]
So, I was recently inspired. This inspiration led to the realization that maybe I haven’t been very inspired lately. I blame this recent inspiration on @klbeasley and @intrepidteacher (and, of course, the […]
It’s way past time for a brief update on my most recent forays into technology integration. I have not necessarily begun my full-on COETAIL final project, but since inheriting a section of DP2 French ab initio […]
Great ideas, Tara! The flipped faculty meeting is a fantastic idea, but your topics are even more intriguing (it’s the Curriculum Coordinator in me). I would love to talk to you more about measuring “soft” skills. […]
What to do? What to do?
Which direction should I choose?
As full-time Curriculum Coordinator, I am in a position that finds me in an office and in front of teachers far more than in a classroom in front of […]
What a great idea! The flipped model seems to really lend itself to coaching. There is an intrinsic motivation that student athletes bring to their sports that students in the classroom sometimes lack. So, to pair […]
These look like great ideas, Emily! I must admit feeling slightly envious as I don’t quite have ideas that are this clear (yet). Blogging can be such a powerful tool for developing student writing. Upgrading a […]
Allowing students time to develop fluency with an app is so important. Lately, I find myself referencing the ISTE NETS for Students Standard 3 Research and Information Fluency that states that “students apply […]
You bring up an excellent point, Heather! I often find myself debating the online, technology, device-driven world that we live in. Online learning suits my learning style quite well, but I also miss the […]
