Peer Coaching for Technology Integration
The goals of the Peer Coaching for Technology Integration Grant funds are to: improve student academic achievement through the effective use of technology in teaching and learning, improve technology literacy of teachers and students, and improve the capacity of teachers to effectively and efficiently integrate technology into their curriculum and instruction. This proposal process will serve to create strong regional technology partnerships between local Montana school districts, mentor partners, and a Montana Regional Educational Service provider in order to provide professional development to prepare peer coaching teams in high need school systems across Montana. Peer coaching teams will assist teachers in their school system to effectively integrate technology across the curriculum to improve teaching and learning. The partnerships will form the basis of a strong relationship to provide professional development and support that will strengthen the intellectual and practical knowledge base, increase networking, and increase the impact of grant funds across Montana.
