What is an instructional technology coach?
The purpose of an instructional technology coach is to support teachers with integrating technology effectively into their instructional practices. The technology coach also provides ongoing 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 experiences for all students.
