Currently, third, fourth, and fifth grade students are gathering teacher recommendations, obtaining parent permission, attending information sessions, and applying for Forest North's newest club: Tech Stars. Tech Stars is a club for third, fourth, and fifth grade students who have an interest in technology. Students in the club receive enrichment opportunities (like making movies, photographs, songs, etc.) as well as leadership responsibilities. Tech Stars are responsible for maintaining the netbooks and other technology at their grade level and setting a positive example for other students. Additionally, tech stars attend bi-monthly meetings to learn new "fix-it" skills, thereby working towards their certification.
Tech Stars starts January 7, 2013. Applications are due December 10, 2012.
The first big event Tech Stars will sponsor is the Digital Learning Day on February 6, 2013--an event that celebrates 21st century teaching and learning.
Please encourage your students to apply for this leadership opportunity!
