Nowadays, technology has changed our everyday life; our students are using technology regularly, their brains got to use new information faster and in hasty. So, our role as educators to be part of this process.
During my learning in COETAIL, I would like to be a LEARNER and DESIGNER. As a Learner, I would like to “explore and apply pedagogical approaches made possible by technology” (ISTE Standards). As s Designer, I would like to focus on “designing authentic learning activities that align with content area standards and use digital tools and resources to maximize active deep learning” (ISTE Standards) and make more personal and meaningful for the students.
I will try different platforms to support students practicing their speaking skills and share their ideas, demonstrating their skills and knowledge differently, reflecting on their development. I am interested in pursuing the COETAIL & GET certificate. I think that the other WL teachers and IT integrators would be an excellent resource for me since I am at the beginning of the process.
