Education Technology and Innovation Coaches, Facilitators, and Specialists provide professional development, instructional support, and coaching to teachers and students in their districts. However, there isn’t a lot of professional development available in this region for people in these new roles. 

Across Missouri - and beyond! - people in education technology roles are doing some amazing things. However, we often only get to see each other, especially those in rural districts, once or twice a year at the big state EdTech conferences. That doesn't leave much time for high quality collaboration.

Connected Coaches was created with the mission to change that - to connect EdTech Coaches and Specialists from around the region, and provide a space for them to collaborate and share ideas, resources, and strategies.

As a member of Connected Coaches, you will engage in ongoing professional learning through:

  • Group email list to share ideas and resources, and reach out to with questions
  • Monthly collaboration topics around professional learning and coaching best practices
  • Database with shared resources from each monthly topic
  • Registration to face-to-face Connected Coaches events scheduled throughout the year
