Released in 2011, the NETS for Coaches (NETS•C) are
the newest ISTE standards. Joining the NETS for Students, Teachers and
Administrators, the NETS•C describe the essential role that
technology coaches play in transforming schools into digital-age, global
learning environments.

Who are technology coaches? Technology coaches are those who help
other educators advance effective technology use in schools. Technology coaches
have many different titles in schools, including technology integration
specialists, technology facilitators, technology lead teachers, instructional
designers and technology coordinators. Some technology coaches are employed
outside school districts as consultants. No matter what their title is,
technology coaches are defined by their proximity to classroom practice and
their focus on fostering instructional improvement.

The NETS•C describe tasks previously unrepresented
in the ISTE technology standards. Technology coaches play broad, critical
service rolls. They support teachers and administrators who are striving to
fully implement the NETS•S. The NETS•C describe how successful technology
coaches provide critical contributions in the following categories:

  • Visionary

  • Teaching,
    learning and assessments

  • Digital-age
    learning environments

  • Professional
    development and program evaluation

  • Digital

  • Content
    knowledge and professional growth
