The role of technology coaches in education constantly evolves and encompasses many responsibilities. Coaches inspire educators to improve learning outcomes through the integration of technology, ensuring accessible high-quality learning and lesson plans for all students. Technology coaches also model digital citizenship to support the interactions of educators and students in a digital world.

The guide focuses on:

  • The role of educational technology coaches to transform learning, teaching and leading with technology.
  • The coach as a key touchstone for change agency in the system to influence up, out and down.
  • Professionalizing the coaching role, bringing coherence to how coaches relate to other educators and vice versa.
  • Working with educators to ensure that technology is integrated in a meaningful way to promote the development of knowledge and skills.
