To advance the individual capabilities of students; to motivate all students; and to create leadership opportunities through the use of technology
The Goals of STLP
Student Technology Leaders (STLs) develop good technology, communication and teaming skills.
Other members of the school and community are enabled to integrate and use technology in and out of the classroom as a result of training by STLs.
The technical support needed maintain the technology in schools and districts is provided by many STLs.
Students who don't thrive in conventional classrooms often begin to flourish in an STLP environment.
Students with a limited set of skills learn to maximize those skills and to gain skills in other areas.
Students earn the respect of others in their school and community.
Students gain technology, communication, leadership and teaming skills; schools' technical needs are met; and communities benefit from the projects.
