In this book, eCoaching pioneer Marcia Rock draws on best-practice research and decades of experience to offer a blueprint for professional development that maximizes teacher and student growth. The eCoaching Continuum for Educators provides teachers, administrators, and other school professionals a step-by-step guide to the four connected, coordinated components of technology-enabled professional development: (1) studying theory and practice to build knowledge of specific content and pedagogy; (2) observing theory and practice to aid in the transfer of new knowledge to classroom practice; (3) one-on-one coaching to give teachers the feedback they need to improve classroom practice; and (4) group coaching to build capacity for identifying and solving problems of professional practice.
Rock offers a practical approach for putting professional development where it can do the most good—in the classroom. You’ll learn
The eCoaching Continuum for Educators integrates best practice in coaching for professional development with a detailed account of how teachers and other school professionals can use today’s technologies to improve their practice and ensure their students are fully engaged and learning.

All coaches seek to help solve problems and increase teacher success, and they all depend on effective collaboration to do so. This practical guide shows readers how to get the most out of educational coaching.
