ISTE 2020 participants attending this K-12 Student Technology Leaders led panel will explain how they benefit their respective schools. These benefits include student learning, job exposure, school transformation, improved realtime tech support, IT pathway for underserved students, and community engagement. Each Student Technology Leader will also describe how their STL program is being implemented in their school thereby giving participants ideas on how they can establish STL programs in their schools and districts. Panelists will also share STL resources with attendees. There will also be ample time for participants to ask the STLs questions.
