Student Tech Teams 101: A Toolkit for Educators

Over the past two years, I’ve consulted with educators, administrators, instructional technology specialists, and IT professionals from throughout the nation, as well as my friend Matt Robinson who resides in Australia, about the nature and scope of the Burlington High School Help Desk program; aka our “genius bar.” Most recently I chatted with Jamie Lakey, Instructional Technology Specialist for Coppell Independent School District in Texas. Jamie discovered the Help Desk blog, currently ranked 283 by Teach 100, through a web search and reached out to me via email. Student Tech Teams 101: A Toolkit for Educators.

Students as Tech Support. Burlington Public Schools, located in Burlington, Massachusetts is a K-12 1:1 tablet, apps for Education district.

Students as Tech Support

The suburban district is home to four elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school with 3,500 students and 300 teachers. Burlington launched the country’s largest 1:1 tablet initiative back in 2011 as well as one of the nation’s first student-run Help Desk program. The Challenge When Burlington High School was preparing to rollout over 1,000 tablets back in 2011, the administration, IT department, and educational technology team relied heavily on students. During the planning stages, students served realized teachers and students would need ongoing technical support as well as assistance with integrating the tablets into instruction.

The Solution The Help Desk was modeled after Apple’s Genius Bar. Student-run genius bar: The facilitator’s guide. Jennscheffer.com. Student Tech Teams: From Creation to Implementation.

Introducing the Student Tech Team!

I am very excited to be introducing our student Tech Team!! This year I have a class entitled “Technology Integration” and my students have been hard at work learning how to use the technologies we have available in the building and how to write tutorials for everyone to use. They’re now ready to be released to the public!! Here’s what we need from you… What do YOU need help with? Is there something that you’d like to know more about how to use? Check out a few of the students’ first projects!!! Starting a Student Technology Support Team. Whether you choose a BYOD policy or your school or district provides devices through a 1:1 initiative, there will be some aspect of support required.

Flipping with Kirch: The Student Tech Team "Genius Bar" is Launched!

Well, after almost a month of meeting and planning, we are officially launched! Welcome, the Beckman Tech Team! We have 13 students from a variety of grade levels who are excited and ready to start helping their peers and teachers. You can follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook. We will be posting information about the services we offer, but also tech tips, program reviews, and other good stuff. One of the big points that I have been emphasizing with our group of students is that not everything will be perfect, not everything will go well. That's one of the reasons I'm blogging now... before we actually begin.

Our first couple of meetings focused on defining who we are and what we do. Starting a Student Support Team in Your School. If we want students to succeed in a global economy, we need to provide them with access to technology in the schools, but until the past year, this was nearly impossible due to the prohibitive cost of laptops.

Starting a Student Support Team in Your School

Now that low cost laptops have hit the market (see Low-Cost Laptop Cheat Sheet; Get Small for Fall), the idea of ubiquitous computing in education can become a reality with truly remarkable results in classrooms like the one written about in X's & O's for the OLPC XO - A View from the Classroom. However, while more and more schools are able to purchase devices, they are now struggling with models to put in place to support the hundreds of devices being used by students and staff. As history has shown, dumping devices into a school without a well thought-out model for instructional and hardware support is a recipe for disaster. While schools realize the importance of the development of such teams, they often struggle with where to begin in launching such a team.

Student Tech Team - PLE-North Technology. The primary goal of the Student Tech Team is to foster the natural technical skills of our students and provide an opportunity to use those skills in service to their community.

Student Tech Team - PLE-North Technology

The Student Tech Team (STT) will be comprised of a selection of 4th-6th grade students who will be trained to provide technical support in their classrooms. Ideally, we will identify 2-3 students from each classroom so that students can work together as a team to provide technical support within their classrooms. The Tech Team Facilitator (TTF) (CRT/Technology Teacher) will provide training and on-going support and supervision to the Student Tech Team members as the students provide technical support to teachers and students in the school.

Examples of support that may be provided by STT members are: Creating a Student Technology Team at Your School. 2013-2014 SWAT Team at North Star Elementary A student technology team is a great way to create a student-led culture and promotes: Student leaders at schoolSchool & community outreach and engagementTeamworkCoaching & mentoringCoding SkillsFlexible learning environmentsCompelling evidence of successPublic SpeakingConfidenceContent creationCustomer serviceStudent voice I am getting ready to begin my new SWAT Team (Students Working to Advance Technology) for this new school year.
