Coaches will give a brief overview of the work that they are doing in their district to build capacity in blended and personalized learning. This includes professional development strategies, coaching models, and favorite tech tools. Other Coaches and administrators attending the session will be invited to share their work as well. Participants will leave with many ideas and tools to bring back to the teachers/coaches/administrators in their district.
This session will be an interactive sharing of ideas with other tech coaches, administrators, and others, who do not regularly have the time and opportunity to share what is working in their unique roles. Resources, tools, and tips will be shared in a relaxed roundtable setting to promote deeper dive discussions.
This session will also afford the opportunity to network and build relationships that will sustain professional learning communities throughout the school year and beyond.
