Enhancing Education Through Technology (EETT)
Goals: 2010 -2011

The Peer Coaching program has 2 primary goals:
1) Professional development
Comprehensive training that will transform a group of teacher leaders into technology integration coaches who learn how to serve as peer coaches for their colleagues. Peer coaches will lead the integration of technology into teaching and learning by bringing new instructional strategies forward, and teaching technology skills.
2) Technology integration
The program also promotes a systematic integration of technology into classrooms. Enhanced Peer Coaching is designed to help teachers work together as they apply standards-based instruction supported by technology-rich learning activities. As coaches, these educators will help their peers identify ways that technology can strengthen classroom instructional practices and enhance their students' academic achievement.
