Presenters will share a detailed coaching program that includes a variety of resources including their Coaching Survival Kit. Instructional practices will focus primarily on Google Workspace for Education tools as well as various lesson plans and strategies that are aligned with the ISTE coaching standards. The presenters will focus on the importance of relationship-building between coaches and teachers, using their own relationship as an example. They will share the tips and tricks used to effectively collaborate with each other and how they focused on project-based learning and blended instructional practices.
