Overview

Effectively integrating technology in the classroom in a conscious, meaningful way can revolutionize the way that teachers teach and students learn. The Meaningful Tech Integration focus area guides educators towards intentionally thinking about technology in a way that redefines the classroom experience for students.

Our 1:1 coaching methodology centers on the principles of actionable research and job-embedded best practices to provide the most personalized and differentiated approach to meet the needs of our participants. This professional learning is designed to support each participant with what they need, not a one-size-fit all approach. Our Meaningful Tech Integration coaches use the “Try, Measure, Learn” approach to create an ongoing change in practice.
