2020 Technology Coaching Conference
Collaboration for Successful Technology Integration
A FREE day of digital learning for those who power the digital classroom.
The 2020 Technology Coaching Conference has ended.
Thank you to our presenters and those who attended!
What is #TechCoachCon all about?
It’s undeniable – technology is rapidly changing K-12 education. But as new devices, applications, and innovations enter the classroom, many teachers are getting frustrated – devices are causing distractions, students are off task, and effective instructional strategies are a mounting challenge. This presents a tremendous roadblock for administrators who want to keep current with innovations in pedagogy and prepare students for 21st-century learning and beyond.
But there is a silver lining amidst all the change:
Over the last few years, Technology Coaches have never been more important, as 70% of schools nationwide have had groups of new hires where 26%-50% of teachers were incapable of using technology efficiently in their classrooms. But as we begin a new decade, too many administrators are unaware of what technology coaching is, and how they can use it to give teachers the confidence that they are maximizing their instruction time.
That’s why Dyknow decided to host the first-ever
Technology Coaching Conference
A full day of digital learning for those who power the digital classroom.
The best part? You don’t have to leave your desk (or couch) to tune in!
This single-day, completely virtual conference will be consumable whenever best fits your schedule. We are bringing together some of the brightest thought leaders and Technology Coaches in K-12 education to discuss topics ranging from the Tech Coach role, instruction and professional development to effective technology integration tactics for the classroom.
The presentations will only be available for people who register. But if you can’t attend the live stream, we’ll send you the recordings.
