ICoach Program

Regional and District/Building ICoach Programs

Looking for professional development support? INFOhio sponsors a regional ICoach team and district/building ICoach team that can help you with your professional development needs.

Regional ICoach

The INFOhio regional Certified ICoach trains classroom teachers and other educators to use INFOhio resources effectively while helping them to integrate INFOhio into their classrooms. Each of Ohio's 16 state support regions has at least one ICoach.

  • The INFOhio ICoach encourages educators to develop 21st century instructional strategies through utilizing INFOhio resources.
  • Each ICoach will conduct training sessions for educators that deepen understanding of the instructional usage of INFOhio's electronic tools and resources, and INFOhio’s connection to the Ohio Learning Standards, as well as focusing on literacy, college and career readiness, and technology innovation.
  • Hands-on experiences will be encouraged.
  • The ICoach will endeavor to work with building/district professional development committees to tailor training sessions to meet the needs of those being trained.

If an ICoach can support your building/district's instructional development efforts, please contact an ICoach that serves your region for availability and applicable fees.
