Developing and changing technology has brought about change and development in education. The aim of the teacher in education has changed from being a resource that gives and teaches information to guidance that leads to access to information. Teachers become the main counselors who coach students and enable them to access the information themselves. Teachers, who are fundamental to their success, need to develop their coaching skills.
