Additional Information

The purpose of this session is to provide an opportunity for those who serve as Edtech Coaches to gather together for collaboration, mentorship, and professional development. As the role of a coach changes from school district to school district, many different models for the position exist. Additionally, the amount of support available for those in this role varies greatly. Coming together annually allows the members of our PLN to share strategies, tools, and lessons learned. This sharing empowers them with new skills and perspectives as they return to their individual situations equipped to carry out their mission as it relates to strategic and powerful uses of technology in the classroom.

Our objectives in this session are threefold:
*Provide an opportunity for coaches to collaborate and problem solve
*Share new and innovative uses of technology
*Encourage new and renewed connections between Edtech Coaches through the communication channels hosted by our network leadership
