Planning, implementing and maintaining large-scale district technology initiatives can be difficult,
particularly when budgets are tight and IT departments are understaffed. But by involving students in
leading these efforts, districts are able to address their technology personnel needs while providing
students with expanded real-world learning opportunities.
This web seminar focused on ways of creating successful student-led technology initiatives. Two
technology leaders from the Temple ISD in Texas discussed how they created their student-led 1-to-1
initiative at Temple High School, how it is benefiting students, teachers and the community, and the keys
to building such a program at any district.

about so much more than simply replacing parts on
a Chromebook. Students have to use critical thinking
skills to assess what is wrong, determine what needs
to be done and then troubleshoot if there are any issues. They're developing real-world experience.
Jessica Mays: We have technology events at our
schools, and our students in STIR serve as docents
for these events. It's great because it helps them
stand out as leaders among their peers. Our teachers
appreciate being able to see our students act in these
leadership roles as well. And I think probably the
most exciting opportunity for our students is when
they are able to help other districts create a student
program like STIR in their own schools.
Jacki Wright: Our students have been invited several times to our state capitol in Austin. They've been
a part of the Texas Capitol Schoolhouse legislative
event, which showcases how technology is being
used in schools every day across the state. Our STIR
students have presented testimony to both the House
of Representatives and the Senate education committees, and they have been recognized on the floor

of the Senate for promoting technology in education.
All of these experiences have been incredible.
Jessica Mays: We've had several other benefits that
have arisen that extend beyond our initial vision. We
enjoy and appreciate partnerships with great corporations like Acer and Google. Technology is a pretty
expensive endeavor, and that's why it's so important
that key community members and parents understand its significance. Our programs help create a
window into the success of our technology initiatives.
We've been blessed by the great support that Acer
has provided us. Not only has Acer trained our students, but also invited us to tour its local campus.
They are developing a program for students in remote areas, so that you don't have to worry about
constraints of location or time or travel expenses to
receive this training from Acer. That training can actually come to you. Some of our students have even
obtained summer jobs working at Acer, and of course
they're super excited by those opportunities.
