What We Do
as instructional technology coaches for the staff at Bonny Eagle Middle School and High School
"The role of a coach is to provide a mirror for teachers to see into their own practice and make decisions that will help them continue to grow and develop, meeting their goals for themselves and for their students."
[Google's Certified Coach Curriculum: Step 5]
As the technology coaches for teachers & staff in grades 6 through 12, we are here to provided technology-related professional development via 1:1 or group settings as well as to support you as you continue to integrate technology into your classroom. Want to techify a lesson? We can help! Have a plan but need support with it? We can come into your classroom and support you during your lesson! We are a liaison between the curriculum department, building administration and the technology department and am here to help in any way I can. The key thing to remember is that we are not tech support and do not respond to tech tickets.
All major instructional problems are solved with planning. I can join you or your team as you plan instruction. I may not be an expert in your content, but I am great at thinking of way to integrate technology. I can help you plan lessons that are engaging and help your students build 21st century skills.
Two heads are better than one! Let me teach with you for a day! We can work together to make sure that problems are solved and students get the individual attention they need. I should probably be involved in your planning as well for this to be most effective.
Don’t feel confident enough to teach a lesson that uses a lot of technology? I’ve got your back. Take a back seat for a class and I can show you some best practices and strategies for true integration.
Our students crave timeline and specific feedback. Teachers are no different. Invite me over and let me join your class! I can debrief with you afterwards and talk about what I saw. I am purely non-evaluative so I can offer stress-free coaching and mentoring.
I would love to be involved in as many professional learning communities (department, team, PLC/PLG, etc.) as I can possibly squeeze into my schedule. Common formative assessments, remediation, and analyzing data can all be improved with current technology.
What do you want to learn about? I can teach you about Google Apps for Education, virtual and augmented reality, 3D designing, formative assessments, SAMR, Twitter, and anything else related to instructional technology you can think of.
