Catching the Bug: How Virtual Coaching Improves Teaching
Allen, Megan
Educational Horizons, v92 p25-27 Apr-May 2014
In this article the author describes virtual coaching and why it is so effective. The following six points of virtual coaching are explained: (1) Also known as bug-in-ear coaching, virtual coaching is not new; (2) Virtual coaching can save money and time; (3) Bug-in-ear coaching increases the frequency of observations for novice teachers; (4) It has amazing results and can increase teaching performance, because it's job-embedded, immediate feedback; (5) For every suggestion for improvement, the coach has the opportunity to give four positive comments (Sugai & Horner, 2002); and (6) Bug-in-ear coaching can prevent isolation and be used as a tool to combat our teacher dropout problem.
