Virtual Instructional Technology Coaching

Program Details

Could your teachers use a reflection partner or an edtech specialist to help them plan tech-rich instruction? How about 1:1 or small group training on that tech tool you’ve wanted to try?

A virtual LTC technology coach can do all of that and more! Our coaches are certified educators, Google Certified Coaches, and experts on the convergence of pedagogy and technology. They work with teachers and schools to provide ongoing virtual support that enhances teachers’ use of technology, with the long-term goal of improving student learning outcomes.

Our virtual tech coaching program is flexible, too. Districts can make coaching fit their budget by choose how many days their coach is virtually available to support teachers. This support could include:

  • Meeting with teachers 1:1 or small group to plan instruction that involves technology
  • Training on technology applications
  • Resource development
  • Informal coaching
  • Co-planning
  • Goal setting
  • Data analysis
  • Facilitation of Professional Development
