Over the past 2 years as a Master’s candidate in the Digital Education Leadership program at Seattle Pacific University I researched, read, discussed, questioned, uncovered all while learning and growing as an educator and learner. The academic journey ends as I show my proficiency as an instructional technology coach supporting teachers, students, and staff within the district I serve.
The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) developed a framework of clear guidelines for teachers, students, administrators, and technology coaches with skills and knowledge necessary to adapt to an ever changing technological landscape. The ISTE Coaching Standards were developed to help bridge the gap from where educators are to where we need to be. They describe the skills and knowledge coaches need to support their peers in becoming digital age educators.
This blog portfolio or bPortfolio serves as a form of personal reflection and program evaluation (Wicks, 2015). This capstone provides the evidence of my competency in the ISTE Coaching Standards and the subsequent indicators. The drop down menu above will link you to standards and their indicators with summaries of evidence and links to posts within this bPortfolio.
