One of the presentations I had the pleasure of attending at the OTA/Encyclomedia conference was on coaching vs. Mentoring. The speaker Dr. Bruce Ellis (https://twitter.com/drbruceellis) covered the two models of teaching others. How to develop a good program based on desired outcomes. I see this is a major issue going forward with technology. At Sequoyah we have tried several different approaches to teaching technology to teachers. Success has been noticeable in some areas and in others we still falter. Moving forward we have some essential questions that need answers. We need to develop a plan based on those questions and have follow through with the methods and processes we decide upon.
As technology becomes more pervasive in the educational arena it will be necessary for teachers to not only know the technology itself but to be able to teach students how to use the technology for greater understanding. I look forward to the adventure ahead.
