Steven Anderson discusses the job of a technology coach. ‘Technology isn't about technology, technology is about people.” But how do we coach people to want to change? How can we help teachers use technology when they have so much to do? These are just some of the questions we discussed on the show.
Who should listen to this show?
This is a must listen for EVERY technology coach or for anyone in school who manages and helps cast the vision for what technology coaches should be and do.
My favorite thing Steven shared in this show is how to help technology coaches help more teachers when there are just not enough technology coaches.
I also love his ideas about doing a really good needs assessment with teaches when they don't know what they don't know and the Friday Institute's Need Assessment (Creative Commons license) and how you can use it to help your teachers improve.
