In recent blog post for Edutopia (George Lucas Education Foundation, Nicholas Provenzano (The Nerdy Teacher Blog) wrote about doing "Tech Drive By's". In the morning before school, he just pops in to a few teachers classrooms and helping with tech questions. It has been really successful for him and he has seen growth in teachers integrating technology.

This got me to thinking about my tech coach position and how I could work this into my routine. Maybe not every day but one or two days a week at one or two schools. Instead of just popping into the classroom to work on iPods to do formal observation, I could plan to stop by before school starts just to see if I could answer any questions.
Instead of a Tech Drive By it could be a Tech Pop In - or even Tech "Pod" In!
I'll let you know how it goes.
