This month’s THE Journal has a great story (Helping Others to Help Oneself) on students who provide tech support for their schools. Shadow Mountain High School’s GenYES program is prominently profiled – congrats to the students and teacher Debbie Kovesdy for this well-deserved attention! There are 65 GenYES students at SMHS, helping teachers and students with technology. But that’s not all they do. SMHS GenYES students research the learning potential of cutting-edge technology like tele-presence, gaming, 3D modeling and more so they can bring it to the classroom.
What school would not benefit from students who make it their mission to take learning and technology to the next level!

This is great stuff. Imagine how many more students would do this if we could get them some funding. imagine instead of folding sweaters at A&F or all the other part time jobs they take for spending money we could fund them to be mentors or tutors?
