Digital Coaches

Because we know that putting technology into schools won’t have as great an impact without also supporting teachers with professional development and other resources, the MyTech program includes an investment in digital coaches. Schools in the program receive the support of a Digital Coach. These coaches have a simple, yet critical role: to support teachers in leveraging technology to impact instruction. Each coach collaborates closely with school administrators and teachers to connect the potential of a one-to-one program to real success in the classroom. They do this through the delivery of high quality professional learning and individual coaching cycles, so that students at MyTech schools have both the access and opportunity to use technology meaningfully. This work is also supported by the Regional Coaches from the Educational Technology team who work hand in hand with the Digital Coaches to identify best practices and help to spread those practices across the district.
