Supporting a 1:1 Program with a Student Technology Team
Peterson, Lana; Scharber, Cassandra
International Journal of Information and Learning Technology, v34 n5 p396-408 2017
Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to describe the practice of using student technology teams (STTs) offered at a high school within a 1:1 district. Design/methodology/approach: This qualitative case study (Merriam, 1998, 2009) documents how an STT program functioned in 2015-2016 academic year. Findings: Findings show the STT provided a rich and authentic learning opportunity for students interested in information technology. The district benefits greatly through both cost savings and personnel support related to its 1:1 initiative. Originality/value: As there is no current research on K-12 STTs, this study serves as a foundation for a practice that is growing within schools.
