Develop the strategies and structure you need as an edtech coach to focus on the coaching, professional development and focused support that can lead to real change.
K-12 schools worldwide are now evaluating how to better prepare for a disruption like the one caused by COVID-19. Schools were pushed into remote learning, and many were not prepared for such a jump. This is where The Edtech Coaching Primer comes in. This book illustrates how, with effective implementation, edtech coaching provides a training and support structure that can help schools transition from what was to what could be.
The role of the edtech coach is often misunderstood, which can cause funding to be diverted and leads to these roles being cut or never created. It’s also not uncommon for those who fill these roles to be asked to perform tasks that pull them away from their most impactful work – supporting teachers and improving learning. This book proposes a model that’s both flexible in its implementation and clear in defining actionable steps so that the edtech coaching role has the greatest possible impact.
