Stackable Certificate Program
COETAIL was not anything specific, but more the type of thinking that has now grown to become a part of who I am as an educator. The way that I see and approach my teaching is different, and the way I reflect on each process feels much more open, creative, and adventurous. There are definitely more exciting things that lie ahead, but now I think I’ve got the right mindset to take it all on, and possibly flip things on their head if necessary.
source of learning for me, and I am in awe of the numerous amazing projects and initiatives taking place by Coetail students and graduates. I also learnt that a paradigm shift is needed in education, and no one educator can make the shift happen on their own. We need to bond together as like-minded educators and work to change pedagogy.
process was that the students can have ownership and change your thinking and that is doesn’t matter that you don’t yet know where this is going or what the outcome may be.
through COETAIL I learned more about flipped learning and what it can offer. It isn’t just a tool for lecture-based lessons like math or history: it’s a way to tailor resources for students.
post and final project reflection, I can’t help but think about my own journey as an educator, my increased involvement within a PLN and, the way in which COETAIL has motivated me to solidify my educational passions and amplify my voice to a larger audience.
educational leadership in numerous ways, including promoting ongoing reflection and learning, connection and collaboration, and creating educators who are able to learn, unlearn, and relearn. In other words, helping us to become technologically nimble.

In 2014, Joel was part of COETAIL Online 5 cohort. It changed the way that he thought about education and made him rethink the why, how, and what of teaching and learning.
He is currently the Elementary Curriculum Coordinator at the International School of Panama. Joel supports educators in planning an inquiry-based, concept-driven curriculum that encourages students to make connections in their learning and become independent and self-reliant thinkers. Joel uses the power of technology, Project Zero, and progressive education ideas to redefine and transform learning for students and lead professional learning opportunities for all members of the school community.
Joel is passionate about making the world a smaller place and building empathy by giving students opportunities to connect, collaborate and create with other students around the world. For his Course 5 final project, Joel created a Travelling Tales, a global storytelling project, which has connected more than 5,000 students in more than 300 classrooms from more than 30 different countries.
Joel lives in Panama City with his wife and three daughters.
