N.B. The summary and evidence for ISTE Standard for Coaches 4 is the same for each of the three performance indicators. Therefore, they are integrated into one section and highlighted below.
“Conduct needs assessments to inform the content and delivery of technology-related professional learning programs that result in a positive impact on student learning.”
“Design, develop, and implement technology- rich professional learning programs that model principles of adult learning and promote digital age best practices in teaching, learning, and assessment.”
“Evaluate results of professional learning programs to determine the effectiveness on deepening teacher content knowledge, improving teacher pedagogical skills and/or increasing student learning.”
4A, 4B, and 4C Summary
- In March 2016 I completed a program evaluation on the training plan for Tech Desk Consultants. The program evaluation included feedback about what works and what needs improvement.
- The evaluation provides feedback on Lynda.com, a video-based training resource, which is used heavily to train the consultants.
- In addition, the evaluation outlines essentials in designing more effective technology training which supports the unique needs of the consultants.
- Finally, the evaluation provides helpful action points for myself, as supervisor, going forward. Focusing on new opportunities for increased student learning as the Tech Desk merges with another service point will be important as the need for training increases and unique needs arise.
