One of the best ways a tech coach can reach teachers is to stop talking about technology.
It may seem counterintuitive, but focusing on technology can be alienating, especially for the skeptics and reluctant adopters.
“Sometimes when tech coaches step in to help, they’ll start with the technology — and they’re not speaking the same language teachers speak when they start talking about technology,” said peer coaching expert Les Foltos, who will present a webinar on “Coaching for Engaging and Active Technology Integration.”
As tech integration specialist Krista Moroder pointed out, most teachers don’t care about technology — nor should they. Teachers care about creating authentic learning experiences, and it’s up to coaches to show how technology can help them do that.
