The Peer Coaching Program in Washington State has been a successfully implemented professional development approach to sustaining technology integration in K-12 schools. This presentation describes the history, research foundation, and components of this program. Examples of coaching models will be shown and implications for use will be discussed. In addition, this presentation will report the results of an extensive evaluation of the program’s impact and implementation in 2007-2008. First designed in 2001, through a successful partnership with all nine Washington K-12 Educational Technology Support Centers in 2002, this program has been successfully implemented throughout the State. A partnership with Microsoft in 2004 has expanded the use of the program globally to more than 47 countries. Lastly, suggestions on how this program might be successfully adopted and adapted in preservice teacher education will be discussed.
