Digital Literacy From a Coaching Perspective


Coaching Tips to Remember:

           
            * Ask and expect the learner to actively engage the featured tool(s).

            * Show how the learned skills are relevant to the classroom. 

            * Provide time to not only learn the skills but practice them in a supportive environment.

            * Build in opportunities for success throughout the coaching session. 

            * Offer a way to communicate any needs AFTER the session and follow through with the help.
