Instructional Coaching is linked to successful classroom practice. As we move into the 21st Century and the world becomes flatter it is important for instructional coaches to develop the skills needed to mentor, coach and teach in virtual environments. This stack will help coaches hone their skills for working online in both synchronous and asynchronous online environments. This stack is tool agnostic and focuses on skills rather than technology.

***** To help support classroom teachers transition to remote learning, educators can now adapt artifacts to classroom instruction activities. For example, if the artifact asks you to create an online learning forum, create one for your students, or if the artifact asks you to have a virtual meeting do this with your students instead of adults. If you have questions about this please go to the help center and fill out the form. ******
