Instructional Coaching: Driving Meaningful Tech Integration
Overview Integrating Technology Instructional Coaching Hampton High School has integrated technology across its entire program with a full-time instructional coach who supports the teachers in this work. The presence of a coach sharpens the school's focus on how technology can best make the learning more engaging and relevant for students, and gives teachers support in navigating the vast field of technology applications and devices. Many teachers either do not have the time or might even be resistant to bringing technology into their classroom; others may think it's just about doing the same thing with new tools. A good instructional coach not only provides teachers with the resources, support, and know-how on working with technology, but also ensures the smart use of technology to deepen the teaching and learning for all involved.
