MTEL has been designed and developed by cooperative education teachers from Ontario:
-to draw on their experience
-to help teachers manage their cooperative education and OYAP programs efficiently
-to ensure that students are actively involved in all essential processes for learning.
Student information is preloaded into the database and ready to use at the beginning of the cooperative education experience.
A searchable record of all past placement employers or supervisors helps match students with a community partner.
Once a community connection has been established, MTEL will help the student develop his or her learning plan with the collaboration and support of the cooperative education teacher and the placement supervisor thus ensuring an ongoing dynamic process.
Dynamic process: the development of the learning plan is an ongoing process and requires an active participation by the student, with collaboration and support of the cooperative education teacher and the placement supervisor.
Review and revise the Student’s Cooperative Education Learning Plan throughout the course
Eliminate time-consuming data re-entry. Once a student’s information has been imported in the application when starting the student’s record, it will automatically be populated on all forms and/or documents which can be branded with board and school logos upon request.
Ontario teachers, schools and school boards have been using MTEL to manage cooperative education programs and monitor work placements for secondary school students since 2002. A total of 27 school boards and over 350 schools are already benefitting from this easy-to-use, cost-effective and powerful tool. Discover what it can do for you!
