From the transcript: Well, today’s new episode of the Easy EdTech podcast is titled Three Ways coaches can Support Teachers. I’m going to go through three of my favorite ways for anyone in education to support their colleagues. So I use the term coaches today really as an all encompassing way to describe someone who takes on the role, whether they have it officially in their title or whether they are just that person to their group of colleagues that offers support to others.
So you might be the person that people are asking questions to. You might be someone who is getting emails with requests, or you might just be someone who is really going out and about trying to support your colleagues as best as you can.
So the three ways we’re going to look at together today are hopefully going to make your life easier, streamline some of the ways that you already are helping educators in your community, giving you some systems to consider. But then of course, working with that end goal of mine, of really supporting the group of educators that you work with. So helping make their lives a little bit easier as well. Let’s jump into this list of three ways coaches can support teachers with our first one, creating collections. Listen to the rest on the episode.
Ways Coaches Can Support Teachers
- Decide on the best way to help
- Set up a support system like collections, responses or a video library
- Ask for input to see if your strategies are effective
- Reflect and pivot as needed throughout the school year
