Coaches Transforming Teaching


"Emily's personable, professional, and positive approach made it easy for me to trust her, share my challenges, and collaborate with her on doable solutions."

One to One Institute is pleased to offer a new course, in conjunction with the Teacher Development Network.  We're offering an eight month professional learning experience for instructional technology coaches in one-to-one schools tied to the Project RED Key Implementation Factors (KIFs) for successful one-to-one initiatives.  Whether you're new to coaching, new to one to one, or just want to build your professional skills with a group of like-minded colleagues, this is the program for you! Apply now! 

What's exciting about our program? It's designed specifically for coaches in one-to-one schools. Every participant will be working in a school in which each student has a personal learning device. In addition, Emily Davis, Ph.D., is one of the foremost experts on coaching for transformation. Emily is including a copy of her groundbreaking book, Tech Request, for every participant, a resource you'll be sure to return to again and again throughout your career.

A focus on coaching skills, not technology skills. You're already the tech expert--now learn how to coach your colleagues in ways that help them transform teaching and learning in their classrooms. The focus on Project RED KIFs ensures that your work will have impact.

The cohort approach. Not only will you build your skills learning from Emily Davis, Ph.D., but you'll connect professionally with a maximum of 25 like-minded coaches from other 1:1 schools across the country. The diversity of experience and school settings will power up your learning.

Direct and actionable learning. Every assignment or activity will have you practicing your newly acquired skills at your school. We will tie activities to the cycle of the school year so that learning is cemented in practice immediately.

Personalization. Each month, you'll have a one-on-one conversation with your coach focused solely on you and your work

Organization. Every month includes a one-hour live session (always available via recording afterwards) at 12pm EST on the second Thursday of the month. Topics addressed are listed below. After each live class, participants receive action assignments (not homework!) based on that month's topic. Personal coaching sessions follow up on the topics addressed and small-group activities provide reflection opportunities (and peer-accountability!) for participants.

Cost: $2,000 for each participant. Includes all materials, a copy of Tech Request (see below), individual coaching, monthly live classes (recordings available) and PLC participation. Certificates of completion will document 20 hours for CEU purposes.
