The Edtech Coaching Primer
Supporting Teachers in the Digital Age Classroom
F–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. The edtech coaching primer 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 those who fill these roles being 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 impact.
- provides an understanding of what edtech coaches can and should be doing, showing how to build a structure that allows them time and space to support teacher growth
- helps schools prepare to provide teachers better support in co-planning, co-teaching, modelling and coaching
- provides a blueprint for the role of the edtech coach for district and school leaders, helping them understand how to advocate for these positions and focus the role to provide most impact
- features different practitioners providing their perspectives on topics like providing personalised support for teachers, helping coaches identify their professional learning goals and more.
