Our team of experienced teachers, administrators, and coaches specialize in Instructional Design and Learning Theory. Because of our unique relationship with Kennesaw State University and the Bagwell College of Education, we have unfetterd access to all of the latest trends, research, and theories in learning and knowledge aquisition. Our instructional coaches use this access to design meaningful learning experiences for the teachers and students in the schools and districts we work with.

Things we account for when designing learning experiences for your teachers and students:

  • Access
    • For All Learners
      • Disabled Learners, Gifted Learners, English Language Learners (ELL), etc
    • New and Emerging Adaptive Content
      • ALEKS, iReady, Redbird, etc
    • Learning Management Systems (LMS)
      • Canvas, Schoology, Power School, etc
    • Digital Content (School/District Supported - Paid and Free)
      • Software, Web Apps, Device-Specific Apps, etc

  • Data
    • District and School Level
    • Needs Assessments
    • Gaps

  • Learning Objectives
    • State and National Standards
    • District and School Desired Outcomes
    • Individual Teacher Needs

  • Local School Level
    • Leadership Change Management
    • Abilities and Level of Teacher Comfort for Change
    • School Culture

Examples of Learning Experiences Designed by iTeach Instructional Coaches

  • In an elementary classroom, 5th grade students partnered with published authors to improve their writer capacity and structure. Apart of the #KidsNeedMentors program, iTeach Instructional Coaches redesigned the learner experience by: incorporating monthly author chats (via Zoom), submitting student-created work (to authors) for live classroom feedback, and fielding student questions regarding the writing process.

  • In an elementary school, iTeach Instructional Coaches utilize Swivl to reflect on implemented instructional models and offer feedback on how to increase student outcomes. By providing visual evidence, teachers work alongside educational specialists to improve lesson design and support modern delivery methods to students.

  • In a middle school classroom, iTeach Instructional Coaches have carefully crafted a student experience that allows them to choose their own learning adventure. Tasked as being a research scientist, students can choose to unlock the mystery of an endangered plant or save the world from a deadly disease impacting healthy cells. These research scientists must prepare an oral presentation that showcases their understanding of either animal or plant cells.

  • In a middle school classroom, 8th grade Physical Science students became Structural Engineers and designed a "maker roller coaster", where they incorporated all 5 Physical Science Standards. Later named The Scream Extractor, this culminating activity allowed students to implement The Design Process by: creating a roller coaster (track and cart) out of recycled materials, designing an animated sign that incorporated both coding and animatronics to simulates two screaming characters, and a complete ride-inspired chef menu to be featured at the grand opening.

If your school and/or district is interested in creating more meaningful learning experiences for your teachers and students, iTeach can help you analyze, design, develop, implement, and/or evaluate your current instructional practices and methodologies.
