By Barbara Bray      January 28, 2010 -- 10:11 AM
When you set up your team in My eCoach for your coaching program, you can now assign subteams, or "Private Rooms," for confidential conversations with one or more of your members. This unique, coaching feature helps extend the meaning of one-on-one virtual coaching or mentoring. The only people that can have a private room are members of your team.

An integral part of successful Professional Development
ILP
My eCoach created a Technology Use Assessment in the 1990s for teachers to generate their Individual Learning Plans (ILPs). This included a list of learning opportunities that were based on a scope and sequence aligned to NETS. All of this started with Concerns-Based Adoptions Model (CBAM) and how we accept change.*

By Barbara Bray      April 27, 2009 -- 08:35 AM
Lots of exciting things are happening with My eCoach. One is our new look. After 12 years with the same logo, we thought it was time to change to represent people helping each other and coaching.

My eCoach provides tools all in one place but itís not the tools that make My eCoach. Itís the people, the coaching, and that My eCoach is an umbrella larger community for all the members. There ...   more...

Pinellas County Schools received the EETT grant again to expand the cross-age cross curriculum projects they started in 2006.
