Tech Core  
Welcome to Tech Core 2016-2017
This year the Tech Core experience will be self-paced and individualized for each member via online modules and up to three one-to-one meetings that incorporate the Microsoft/Puget Sound Peer Coaching Protocols. Peer coaching is a non-evaluative, collaborative model with a focus on improving one lesson or unit with instructional technology. There will be one group kick-off meeting in September and a second for project sharing in January.
Choices for tool trainings include self-paced on-line or face-to-face. After implementing the lesson or unit with students, the Tech Core member will share at two Tech Days (February and May) and with grade-level colleagues.
**Note: we also have the option of meeting virtually via BlackBoard Connect (except for the initial meeting).
