Many times in schools technology supplies are purchased – then sit in closets unused. Why the waste? They were purchased with all good intentions, but no one at the school really has the time or inclination to put the plan into action!
But here’s the antidote…
TechYES/GenYES program receives new supplies (News from Stillwater CSD)
“December 8, 2011 – Mrs. McBride’s TechYES/GenYES students will be able to help improve technology throughout the district even more, thanks to a new donation of supplies.
The class received a new video camera, web cam, business card stock, t-shirt iron-on paper and laminator from Hamilton-Fulton-Montgomery County BOCES. A special thank you to Todd DeSoto, who presented the class with the new supplies.
The students are currently planning projects to utilize the new tools.”
I guarantee this – these will not go to waste. How do I know? Because these TechYES and GenYES students have been taught to help teachers and their peers use technology in every classroom, and they take their jobs seriously!
Why not put the energy, passion, and enthusiasm of your students to use in your school. TechYES and GenYES are tried and true models of real student engagement and leadership, ready for all schools to adapt and hit the ground running. Online tools, professional development, and curriculum give you everything you need for one school, a district, or a whole state!
Generation YES supports all our schools with commitment, pride, and passion – we would love to work with you!
