In this episode of “Ask the Tech Coach,” Jeff and Nick bring in the new year by discussing extremely important, EdTech Integration Plan. We all have heard of a Tech Integration Plan, but today we take a look at the other document that describes and discusses not only what will be happening with the technology once purchased, but how it will be used in the school district.
If you are in a school district and are interested in creating your own EdTech Integration Plan, please contact us today by email or voice. We would love to work with you to help you create a fantastic professional development and edtech integration plan for your staff members.

Tech Coach Tip of the Week
- Just as it’s important for school districts to create and maintain an updated technology plan that focused on hardware and applications, it’s equally as important for school districts to create and maintain an EdTech Integration Plan which describes what should be happening in classrooms. This will then become the baseline and benchmark for the work that happens in the lives of Tech Coaches.
