This webinar is part of the October 2015 ISTE Professional Learning Series.

Like students, teachers consume and learn new information in very different ways. Sometimes email can get overwhelming and isn’t always the best way to communicate with your staff. There are a number of free resources that ed tech coaches can use with their staff to differentiate communication and reach everyone “where they’re at,” and we will highlight these tools and new communication ideas in this webinar.

Presented by the ISTE Ed Tech Coaches Network.

Bio: I began my career working at the university level in adult education and the President's Office, while also working with 7th-12th grade students with behavioral issues in an alternative school. I have served as the Director of Educational Technology for a private, 1:1 high school and also at the district level as an instructional technology and web specialist for a low-income, public school district in Ohio. My passion for technology in education brought me to Forward Edge, where I oversee the C and I team. I work closely with our customers' Curriculum Directors, Principals and even Technology Directors to help them identify needs of their staff, plan PD and implement the PD with teachers. Currently, I also serve as the Outgoing President of the Edtech Coaches Network for ISTE, Co-Leader of GEG Ohio, Thought Leader for Future Ready Instructional Coaches, and I am a Google Certified Innovator and Trainer.
