Instructional Coaching Holds Promise as a Method to Improve Instruction with Technology
Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education (SITE)
Instructional coaching is an evidence-based form of professional development to support teacher growth. Few empirical studies examine conditions that define its effectiveness in improving teachers’ ability to use technology to support student engagement and learning. Using evidence from two pilot years of an instructional technology coaching program in 108 schools nationwide, our study examines and explores the attributes that teachers, principals, and coaches report contribute to the effectiveness of coaching for improving teacher use of technology in their practice.
