How To Assess the Digital Learning Skills of your Staff Members

Creating Staff Self Assessments

In this episode of “Ask the Tech Coach,” Nick and Jeff look at the many ways that school districts can assess the technology skills of staff members. For many tech coaches, the collection of useable and actionable data is the basis for their entire programs. In this show, we look both at traditional surveys that tech coaches can use as well as nontraditional assessment methods for quickly identifying skillsets of individual staff members.

In this episode, we discuss:

  • Reflections from Episode 12: How to stay organized while working in multiple buildings
  • How to work in multiple buildings and not go crazy?
  • Have a great website that is teacher friendly
  • How to work with contrasting administrations who want different things from you?
  • How to put yourself in more than one place at a time and not feel like you are constantly “missing” in the other building. (Out of sight, out of mind)
  • Summer Edcamp Wrap up
  • How to assess your staff members Technology Skills … quickly and effectively
  • What should your survey look like
  • When to survey your teachers
  • How to survey your teachers
