“Technology coaches demonstrate professional knowledge, skills and dispositions in content, pedagogical and technological areas as well as adult learning and leadership and are continuously deepening their knowledge and expertise” (ISTE 2011).
c. Regularly evaluate and reflect on their professional practice and dispositions to improve and strengthen their ability to effectively model and facilitate technology-enhanced learning experiences.
Technology coaches contribute to a technology-enhanced learning environment by “engaging in continual learning,” in order to “deepen their knowledge and expertise,” so that they can “improve professional practice” (ISTE 2011).
Each module of my coursework in the Seattle Pacific University Digital Education Leadership Master’s Degree program required me to “evaluate and reflect on [my] professional practice” and prompted me to strengthen my abilities through identifying and investigating emerging best practices that I could apply to my current practice (ISTE 2011).
As I grow in my role as a digital education leader, I will continuously “evaluate and reflect on [my] professional practice” in order to deepen my knowledge and expertise (ISTE 2011). I will encourage and facilitate structured reflective practice for my colleagues using the ISTE Standards for Teachers.
