What is a Technology Coach?
The essential function of the technology coach is to facilitate the implementation and integration of technology in PreK-12 classrooms. The technology coach also provides ongoing job-embedded professional development for teachers, staff, and administration on infusing technology into the core curriculum areas, models effective instructional strategies using technology, and leads discussions with teachers on the latest research on technology integration. Technology coaches assist teachers in using technology for assessing student learning, differentiating instruction, and providing rigorous, relevant, and engaging learning experineces for all students.
