What is a Digital Learning Coach?
It's a strange gig, but we love it!
Here is a general description of a FISD Digital Learning Coach...
The Digital Learning Coach assists teachers in using technology effectively for assessing student learning, differentiating instruction, and providing rigorous, relevant, and engaging learning experiences for all students. Digital Learning Coaches conduct needs assessments, develop technology-related professional learning programs, and evaluate the impact on instructional practice and student learning.
Blah, blah, blah... What does this mean for you and your students? Here are few highlights!
Here are three things I would like to focus on this year! How can I help you and your students?
1. Promote Digital Learning Essentials
How can we infuse the 5 Cs (creativity, critical thinking, communication, citizenship, & collaboration) into your curriculum? Let's pump up one of your lessons or projects and increase engagement in one of those not-so-fun units. Let's help the students create something great!
2. Actively Participate in Collaborative Planning
I want to join you for your PLC meetings! If you even remotely think that I could help develop a quick lesson, flipped lesson, review, formative assessment, or even an extended project, let me come plan with you! Shoot me a date and time and I'll add it to my calendar!
3. Foster Digital Citizenship
We want students to create a positive digital footprint to help ensure a successful future! Creating and collaborating online is a great way for students to practice appropriate communication and learn how to interact positively in a digital environment. How can get your students "talking" and sharing?
