Developing a Tech Club and Engaging Student Interest

In this day and age of No Child Left Behind, it’s difficult to expose students to advanced digital tools when you have a limited amount of student contact time. We all know the realities of tech integration, but for some students, it’s just not enough. In this workshop, see how a club was created for seventh and eighth grade students that was student-led and student-driven that taught them a variety of outcomes. These included: basic coding, podcasting, graphic arts creation, as well as opportunities to work with younger students and staff members requiring assistance with various technology needs. You will see examples of these products, as well as “meet” the students and find out why they signed up and what they’ve been able to take from this group. So if you are looking to develop your own club, or just collect some ideas to challenge your students, check this workshop out.
