Well folks….I am finished with my COETAIL course 5 project and here it is!
I decided to work with my Grade 3 class on Digital Storytelling with a focus on imagined narratives about our Solar System. It fit perfectly with my current Unit of Inquiry about how the Solar System affects life here on Earth.
It was a wonderful experience undertaking this project with my class, and since doing it last month they have all been asking to do more projects like it. Below you will find my UBD planner and you can click here for documents associated with the project that may be useful.
Here’s a few helpful links from the sites/books we used….
Over the past year I have found that COETAIL has helped me gain a greater understanding of the right reasons for using technology in the classroom, and how it can really transform learning. I am also looking forward to a shift in my career this year as I move from classroom teacher to technology coach for the American International School in Guangzhou. A move that no doubt would not have happened without the experiences provided by COETAIL.
COETAIL may be over for me, but my journey in the educational technology world is only beginning!
