What is DETA Coaching: Creating 21st Century Schools?
DETA Coaching is a professional development model for enhancing standards-based instruction in Broward County Public Schools by helping teachers develop, implement, and coach one or more collaborating teachers in project based learning in the classroom with engaging, technology rich, standards-aligned learning experiences for students.
DETA Coaching builds on the process begun with DETA One and DETA Two. The year-long course allows motivated DETA teachers enhance their professional practice as Digital Educators and create 21st century classrooms for their students. Embedded within the program are opportunities for teachers to evolve into teacher-leaders as coaches and mentors, supporting their peers through a project-based approach. Coaches learn how to use and implement 21st century strategies such as social bookmarks, podcasts, and weblogs to enhance learning in the classroom.

• Web 2.0
