In order for Edtech coaches to assist and support teachers in the effective use of technology, they must maintain their own continual professional development. One of the most powerful resources available to coaches is other practicing coaches. The ultimate goal of our PLN is to create a community of professionals that supports each other while implementing the entire set of coaching standards. This session will address ISTE Coaching Standard 6 through facilitating connections that will provide opportunities for collaboration and support throughout the entire year. This on-demand networking system will provide continual learning and support for Edtech Coaches as they implement the other coaching standards in their daily responsibilities.
