4.1e | Connecting Change Agents

As a change agent, the coach is encouraged to connect leaders, educators, instructional support, technical support, domain experts and solution providers to maximize the potential of technology for learning.

In my role at work, I am constantly on the lookout to connect change agents to maximize the potential of technology for learning. I first identify change agents who have demonstrated expertise in their respective domains or have demonstrated mastery in integrating technology in experiential learning as described in this post and then pair them with a coachee who can do with some coaching help.

I have used the four-stage experiential learning model developed by Kolb which includes Concrete Experience, Reflective Observation, Abstract Conceptualization, and Active Experimentation.

I have also put to good use the coaching process which I have documented here, to serve as a springboard for the identified coach to take as a reference.

Besides this, I have also tapped into my network to connect school leaders of portfolio companies within the Group for knowledge sharing. We have organized cross-school events and invited domain expert and solution providers to be our guest speaker.
