On December 15, 2015, Future Ready Schools held a webinar in its FRS Leadership Network, a one-stop shop of professional learning opportunities for school leaders. This Google Hangout explored the creation, implementation, and use of student tech teams.

Mobile learning coach Jennifer Scheffer and one of her students, Tim Sullivan, discussed the benefits of student tech teams in supporting large-scale technology initiatives from both the student and teacher perspectives. Practical advice on student tech teams, including curriculum and assessment development, recruitment and training of students, and how to promote team services was shared during this webinar. Learn how Burlington High School’s student-run Genius Bar has become one of the nation’s premiere student tech team services and how similar initiatives can be developed to meet the unique needs of their learning community.

Panelists also addressed questions submitted by webinar viewers from across the country.

Future Ready Schools is a collaboration between the U.S. Department of Education and the Alliance for Excellent Education, a Washington, DC–based national policy and advocacy organization dedicated to ensuring that all students, particularly those traditionally underserved, graduate from high school ready for success in college, work, and citizenship.
