ISTE Coaching Standard & Indicator 1b: Contribute to the planning, development, communication, implementation and evaluation of technology-infused strategic plans at the district and school levels.
Recently, our Instructional Technology Team presented evidence to the school board that we are meeting the goals of Board Priority 5.2: Expand and refine support structures related to digital resources. Specifically I shared examples of my year-long coaching and collaboration with teachers throughout the district. I shared examples of how our team is supporting the 5 Cs of 21st Century Learning skills-Communication, Collaboration, Critical thinking, Creativity, and Curiosity. The message that technology enhances these skills was evident in our Google K12 collaboration initiative, introduction of school Makerspaces, infusion of computational thinking learning, and global collaboration projects. Much more work will follow in the coming school years to bring in more teachers and further develop pedagogical competencies, but I feel confident we are advancing our teachers and students on the right path.
The following blog post shows evidence of my contributions to the planning, development, communication, and implementation of a district professional learning plan.
