Are you missing out on the best resource in your school—your students?
Then, start a Student Technology Team
Workshop #1—Freeport Middle School, August 6-7, 2012, 9 am – 3 pm
Workshop #2—Orono High School, August 8-9, 2012, 9 am – 3 pm
Isn’t it time for a student technology team in your school?
Does your school have a student technology team (STT)? Would you like to expand the reach of an existing team? Then this is the workshop for you. The purpose of each STT Workshop is to prepare you to start a student technology team where students demonstrate leadership, promote learning with technology for teachers and peers, and model exemplary digital citizenship skills. We will help your school build a sustainable student technology team by providing a comprehensive process for developing such a team, based on the goals your school sets.
Topics will include—benefits of student technology teams, rationale, finding your school’s focus, and setting goals; what students will do—work with peers, teachers, and community; provide in-class help, “just-in-time” assistance; recruitment and student technology team training; selecting and certifying students; adult mentors in the program; professional development for students and teachers; making your student technology team sustainable and replicable and much more.
Details: Cost for each workshop is $250 for a team (maximum of 5 people) or $100 for an individual. Included is the workshop fee, snacks, and materials.
Please note that schools are encouraged to register teams of FIVE including teachers, students, and parents.
Registration due June 22, 2012.
