Burlington Student Help Desk - Panel Discussion

This panel discussion will highlight our student run technology help desk that was proposed two years ago as a new course to help support the 1:1 iPad initiative. Attendees will learn the steps needed to build a student technology help desk course, how to build the curriculum to align with common core standards, and receive a first hand account of our course from our students. Attendees will leave this session with a comprehensive understanding of how to find in house resources to support a large scale 1:1 initiative, how to integrate a student technology help desk, and how to use students as a resource for professional development.
