Abstract

As access to educational technology grows within P12 schools and districts, the need for technology integration support does as well. With the increase in devices including laptops, phones, tablets and the integration of technology into the curriculum, the number of school district technology staff is growing to support technical as well as pedagogical needs. This roundtable explores the role(s) of the technology integrationist, who typically serves on a district’s technology team. This position primarily serves as an instructional coach for educators throughout the district. If educators have the support of technology coaches, they are more likely to use technology as a tool within their instruction (Beglau et al., 2011). The conversation will begin by featuring insights from seven technology coaches serving throughout one state’s school districts, specifically strategies for technology integration, challenges, and job responsibilities.
