Time is one of the most valuable things an Tech Trainer, Coach or Integrator can give to teachers at international schools. One way this can be done is by the Trainer, Coach or Integrator taking over a class for a lesson (or more) to give the teacher time to play around with a technology they intend to use for student learning.
This has the added benefit of giving the Tech Trainer , Coach or Integrator insights into what (and how) the class is learning so that they can direct the teacher towards appropriate technology resources.
