Travelling Tales – Amplification

Travelling Tales was my COETAIL course 5 final project. I can’t believe that it all started in November 2016. Time really has flown by. Travelling Tales has grown and grown in the past 8 months and has allowed students in my class to create meaningful and purposeful global collaborations. Not only has it created connections for my […]

Travelling Tales -A COETAIL Course 5 Final Project

Travelling Tales When creating this video, I thought it would be challenging to make 10 minutes’ worth of video content. As it is the video is over 10 minutes and there is still things that I did not put in! How did that happen? I think my project really helped me! Essentially the project is […]

Slowing down to Travel with a Tale…the plan

The end is near to this wonderful COETAIL experience. I am trying to put the finishing touches to my Video. I just published 2 more Travelling Tales ( that is 4 now )  when suddenly I realised I have not published my plan! Doh! My plan was not set in stone last year as I […]

Lift Off

Lift off. I have made a decision, finally. For my Course 5 Final Project I am going to be working on Travelling Tales. It is (I hope…)  a simple concept based on a Story Mountain, from the author Pie Corbett. It goes a little like this… Someone tells the beginning of a story. The next person […]

Ch Ch Changes

Course 4 – Final Projects – Magic Carpet Ride

OK… So I am not really sure what I want to do… I have thoroughly enjoyed the past 4 courses of COETAIL. It is the best Professional Development I have ever done. It has been an amazing journey – a little like a magic carpet ride.  Up’s and Downs. So much learning but so little time. Surprises […]

Messing around in Course 3 – Course 3 Final Project – Modern CV

When creating my Course 3 Final Project my thoughts turned to the past. I have been working at the International School of Luxembourg for nearly 4 years (this is my first step into International Education.) Before that I was teaching in Central London. In 4 years not only I have personally changed, but as a […]

3-2-1 Bridge Remixed – Course 2 Final Project – Empowered User Agreement

3-2-1 Bridge. Remixed! Thats what this Course 2 Final Project feels like. Since going to a Project Zero Conference, Zeroing in on Learning, at the start of October I have been trying  many of their thinking routines. 3-2-1 Bridge is one of these. 3-2-1 bridge is a routine for activating prior knowledge and making connections. For me […]

Digital footprint or digital tattoo?

What does your online presence say about you? Is it a permanent reminder of an embarrassing night out? Or does it show off the positive journey you have made in your life? Digital footprint or digital tattoo?  I looked at my digital footprint; I googled myself and this came up:- Links to my Twitter page and a […]
