In order to find work that demonstrates my experience in coaching teachers in the “implementation of technology-enhanced learning experiences [that emphasize] creativity, higher-order thinking skills and processes, and mental habits of mind (e.g., critical thinking, metacognition, and self-regulation),” it is important to look back on student-created projects (International Society for Technology in Education, 2011). The ISTE Student Standard, Creativity and Innovation aligns nicely with this coaching standards, as it states that students will “demonstrate creative thinking, construct knowledge, and develop innovative products and processes using technology” (International Society for Technology in Education, 2007).
I addressed both the student and coaching standards by designing a student-created book trailer project, where students share their excitement of a favorite book in an effort to increase circulation rates and encourage reading for pleasure:
