I have been a digital learning coaching for about 6 years. ( I am in Western Australia)
1.I have a discussion with each year level to work out which terms will suit them ( taking into account camps, age level etc).
In consultation with the assistant principal we work out an overview of the year levels to be coached
I plan with a year level at the start to get an overview and then each week I meet with them to plan and go through some of the skills they will be learning. I then go in and teach the concept. The key is that the Teacher has to be engaged in the lesson and cannot be off doing other things. I never deliver a coaching session if the teacher is sick and a relief teacher is there instead.
At the end of the term or start of the following term we run a workshop where the teachers have 20 minutes to present to their colleagues something they learned. Teachers rotate around the three or four workshops to get a taster. This has been very effective. Sometimes we have had students assist with these workshops as “ teachers”.
I hope this helps.
I am a classroom teacher and I have a supplemental position for tech coaching. What successful models of coaching have people done who are in a similar position to me? How did you bring people on board to be coached? How did you set up a “vanguard team” to support your staff and tech integration growth?
