Tech Sherpas

This article talks about a technology program where students help teachers become more familiar with the technology of the 21st century.  Students who are now in our school systems have more exposure to technology than their teachers have had in their entire lifetime.  As convenient as this may be it is not the sole reason for the program.  It was designed to help develop student’s social skills and communication when working with adults.  These skills will serve them well when they work in groups in the future in a academic or work environment.  Students enjoy the program because they feel as though they are helping teachers succeed.  Roles swap in these sorts of instances where the teacher becomes the student and the student becomes the teacher.  Schools need to provide more experience like these for students to involve them in real world problems.
