Digital Learning Coaches


At the beginning of the school year we introduced our new Technology Coaches.  Since then, we have renamed this position to "Digital Learning Coaches"  This name better describes the goal of this position which is to focus on collaboration and integration.  So what are Digital Learning Coaches?

Digital Learning Coaches are classroom teachers identified as digital learning leaders for their schools. These coaches provide support and training for their colleagues. Digital Learning Coaches also work with their fellow teachers one-on-one to help them engage learners by using digital tools and resources.  Here are just a few words that I would use to describe a Digital Learning Coach:

It varies in each school, but all of our coaches are doing a variety of things to share information and resources with the staff in their buildings.  From a Google Classroom PLC, "See and Do" Learning Sessions, scheduled "office hours" and a variety of sessions on professional learning days, they are ready to work with teachers and support them with their digital learning goals.

Please reach out to myself and the Digital Learning Coaches in your building to begin working on your own digital learning goal.  We are all ready to help!
