Student Tech Help

"Take advantage of the techspertise of your students."

Students should work with their peers on having a positive digital presence.

Every class & school should have a Student Tech Squad
(Help Desk, eLearner, Geek Squad, SWAT Team, Technical Difficulties Club...)

Teacher Notes

Use your students to help their peers and other teachers in your school with tech tools and equipment.
Have them take part in
Smackdowns at faculty or parent meetings.
Use them to plan
Tech Nights
at your school.
Be presenters or participants at edcamps.  Have students organize an edcamp as students at Burlington, Massachusetts did.

At the first #edcampCitrus I attended I talked with some of the student helpers before the sessions started.  I urged them to take an active part in the sessions in the rooms that they were stationed.  I was very pleased when they participated in some of the sessions and the Smackdown.

At the second #edcampCitrus I enjoyed taking in a session led by a student

At #edcampSocial Studies I gave a session with a student at SLA.

We have a tendency to not utilize the many abilities that our students have.  You will be amazed at how helpful they can be.

Give students a chance to display their digital expertise by forming a student tech squad in your school.  Start a student help desk which is being done on all levels of education.  Use students with tech skills to help their peers in your classroom with technology.  Also have these students model proper use of technology. When I skype into classrooms I have seen teachers having students record the session.
