What is a Natick Innovation Fellow?
For the 2018-2019 school year, the NEF has again provided a grant to fund this Digital Learning Coach role in cooperation with Natick Public Schools, creating a pilot role called NEF Innovation Fellow.
Jed’s objective as Digital Learning Coach is to model and provide training in integrating technology to enhance instruction, helping shift students from consumers of content to creators. Classrooms are transforming into innovative learning spaces that feature coding, robotics, STEM challenges and design-thinking.
In this role, Jed will provide leadership, staff development, and job-embedded instructional support to all elementary staff in integrating technology and innovative practices to enhance teaching and learning. This role builds instructional technology capacity of personnel, and assists researching best tools and practices for incorporating technology into instruction and the curriculum.
The coach’s role is rooted in instructional support, developing teachers’ capacity with academic technology, while always focused on student learning.
