What are Student Summits?
Student Summits are immersive educational events for and with students of all ages. During a Summit, students work with world class educators learning to how to utilize technology in the classroom. Scheduled for a full day or entire week, Students Summits expose students and teachers to educational technology experiences.
There are a variety of scenarios we offer for Student Summits.
Model One: Mentor Coaching Model
Utilizing a shoulder to shoulder co-teaching model our team will work side by side during a “class period” modeling a lesson and activity that leverage technology and aligns with age and grade level expectations and behaviors. This model allows the teachers to experience successful technology integration, while students learn with them.
Example: Foothill Knolls (500 students) Sample Schedule of the Day
Model Two: Maker/STEAM Camp
We will bring additional equipment to work with students creating a ‘Makerspace’ right in your school! 3D Printers, robotics, coding and more. When the event is over, the equipment, (and learning how to use it) stays right in the school with your students and teachers!
Example: STEAM Maker Camp
Model Three: Google Apps Student Certification
An alternative would be for our staff to work with your students helping them create sessions to teach other students. This works best when select older students are training younger students. We work with them helping them develop the teaching skills in the process. The students learn by teaching.
Model Four: Student Agency Custom Summit
EdTechTeam produces a full day of inspiring topics, sessions, and inspirational keynotes. Students empowered to choose sessions based on topics of interest are able to engage and participate in an event similar to a teacher summit, but with topics that interest them.
Example: Black Gold Regional School District (150 students) Sample Schedule
“The summit for students functioned in the same way as the Google summit for teachers. We had amazing presenters, from topics such as Minecraft, creating animations with Google Drawings, photo editing, sessions specifically for teachers, etc.” -Darren Maltais (Black Gold Regional School District)
