Not to freak you out, but…

Hi lovely COETAILers,

Not to freak you out but …

…the due date is looming. Everything is due on November 24th. 


At this point you should have:

  • Chosen your project/topic and checked it against the rubric
  • Started to implement and reflect via blogging your project. This may lead some tweeking of your project, which is both more than okay and expected.
  • Started to address the community engagement component of Course 5. Remember, community engagement does not have to directly relate to your project, but should be focused on developing your post-COETAIL PLN.
  • Added and linked any blogs you have written on your grade sheet.

Other suggested ideas:

  • Do some backward planning. You all know creating a video takes more than just a couple of hours. How much time do you want to be dedicated to the creation phase? And know that you will also be writing your final blog post and your community engagement post at the same time. (anyone else feel empathy for their students right now?)
  • Get some feedback. Getting feedback from other people (COETAIL-friends, strangers on Twitter, people you work with, your kids!) will help you. And it will also give you something to reflect on when the time comes.
  • There is no such thing as too many artifacts. Don’t forget to be documenting like crazy. Take pictures. Take quick videos of the kids. Do a feedback survey and keep that. You want as much evidence of learning as you can find

Also, those of you that are blogging may have noticed less feedback from me and Robert. We mentioned at the beginning of this course that this would happen. But if you really want feedback right away or have a question, do reach out. We know you can do this without us, but we are here to help you any way we can.

The amazing work so far

There are some fantastic projects going on in Course 5 that you might have missed as commenting is no longer required. I am, as always, blown away.


Some worth checking out:

Good luck with all of your work. You all are working hard, but I know it is having an impact on the people you work with and with the students you teach. As always, let us know how we can help.
