As we shift from "pandemic to possibilities," together we can create inspired classrooms where student-centered learning includes opportunities for communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking.The focus of the 5-step coaching model is on the Impactful Use of Technologyto support student learning and develop student agency. Cycles can last anywhere from a few days to several weeks, depending on the challenge.
