"Grant puts students through technology bootcamp"

July 13, 2015

In the Fall of 2014 Cisco and the Office of Yuma County Superintendent of Schools partnered, creating additional funds for technology in Yuma County schools. In the Spring of 2015 the partnership funded several GenYES subscriptions for Yuma's local schools. This enabled YESD to increase the services provided by their student technology ambassadors.

The funding included summer boot camps in which five students from each campus and their iINSTRUCTOR (teacher) received training on the GenYES program, customer service, iPads, and Google Apps for education. These student technology leaders then returned to their home campus to train their peers. YESD 1 Student Technology Leaders (STLs) rose to the challenge.
