Instructional Technology Coaches
We envision a sustainable culture in which technology is applied to increase the academic performance of all learners.
We collaborate with school communities to:
- Plan and deliver instruction to maximize student engagement
Provide training and resources to improve teacher efficiency
Advance and sustain digital competency
We use classroom technologies to engage and expand students’ interactions with knowledge (content) and people (audience).

♦ Coaches Blog
The short informative posts on the Coaches Blog provide you with the BEST practices for your classroom, as reflected in our Vision and Mission statements. This page is limited to LPS created, and/or purchased resources. If you would like to access information and updates on new, exciting, and useful external resources, please visit the individual coaches sites.
♦ Bl@ts Categories
The next links in the Sections sidebar for this site refer to the Lincoln Public Schools BLueprint for Assessing Technology Skills, or Bl@ts. Each of the sections will provide you with a discussion relating to the specific strand defined in the Bl@ts rubric, an instrument created to selflect on your digital literacy and in return be given a custom blueprint for your future instructional technology development.
♦ Digital Content Resources
Although you can access all digital content resources through the LPS Media Center Home Page or your school’s media center Web page, the resources are organized here to meet the instructional needs of the IT coaches’ audience.

The LPS Quick-Links are organized into three categories:
The selected LPS Quick-Links are frequently used by the Instructional Technology Coaches during workshops, presentations, or coaching sessions. Although you could discover these sites through your own independent searches on the LPS Website, a few favorite must-view pages are linked here for easy access (continually updated). Enjoy!
