GenYES Facilitator Jose Gonzales sent us a letter about what his Student Technology Leaders accomplished this year. His students have done an amazing job providing tech support to Bunche Middle School in Compton, CA, and went above and beyond to complete a spacecraft simulator for STEAMFEST.
Coming this summer: New curriculum! Our new curriculum features exciting, brand-new units and activities for your Student Tech Leaders to explore in five categories: GenYES Basics, Content Creation, IT Support, Mentoring Skills, and Advanced Units.
Today, we're pleased to announce that The University of Phoenix has provided two full-ride scholarships to seniors who have participated in GenYES! Current and former GenYES students are encouraged to apply. More information can be found at https://goo.gl/xugxff. The application deadline is May 1st.
This February, Dr. Dennis Harper spoke as part of a panel at the New Hampshire Summit on Digital Equity for Economic Opportunity. He discusses the value of having students be involved with any solutions developed by adults. One of our mottos at Generation YES is "Students are the future, but they are also here now". While that may seem obvious, we too often forget that students, with the right guidance, can offer innovative solutions to complex problems.
Generation YES announced today that it has launched its Annual Fund Drive to scale up its Student Technology Leaders Program. Supporting the GenYES program will help educators and school leaders more effectively integrate technology into their schools. Specially prepared student technology leaders will provide their teachers real-time professional development and contribute basic technology infrastructure support.
