Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

The purpose of this presentation is to give other coaches support and guidance on their journeys as a technology coach in a hybrid environment with teachers. Participants will be able to see a different model set up through workshops, and collaborative online feedback calls. Discussions around how teachers take a self reflection evaluation multiple times and the use of a rubric that focuses on the 4C’s as well as student engagement multiple times throughout the program by both the coach and the teacher will also show evidence of success of the teachers’ progress through the cohort. Formal coaching cycles will be discussed but with a twist to show that as a coach the stress of this process needs to be taken off of a teacher so that as much growth as possible can be made.
