Students Teach Teachers Technology

APS GenYes Program trains kids to help their classmates and teachers use technology in the classroom.

A dozen APS kids from across the district became student technology leaders as part of a national program called GenYes.  The program gets students to help teachers integrate technology in the classroom.

Chris Jones, APS senior director of learning technologies says the goal is to provide students with opportunities to expand their skill sets, get hands-on training, explore new interests and get exposed to future job possibilities. 

During the training, students put together short videos to share with their classmates and teachers on how to do everything form take a screen shot from an iPad to editing a video.  Next semester students will help respond to teacher requests for technology help at their school.
