What the education field is facing now is nothing less than the complete digital transformation of classrooms and schools. Thus, the focus of edtech coaches and other tech leaders in schools must shift from simply bringing technology into schools and tracking resources to identifying how the elements of this changing landscape fit together to form a profoundly altered, improved version of education. With this change affecting entire school communities, informed individuals who can guide members of the community through the transition are essential. The problem is that there are not nearly enough certified tech coaches in schools, and those who are in place are not always adequately prepared to handle this new mission. This is true for both trained edtech coaches and those who are coming to this role through other avenues. This book includes: background on the changing education landscape and how to manage it; activities to help edtech coaches and other change agents put what they learn into action; practical tools, including to-do lists, action plans and checklists, to help you guide digital school change; and tips to help new and emerging tech coaches understand the process of change, resistance to change and how to move past it.
