ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A dozen Albuquerque Public Schools students are being trained to become technology teachers.
The program is part of a national program called Gen YES. A dozen students grades 3 through 12 from seven different schools are receiving training to help teachers integrate technology in the classroom. They will teach their classmates and teachers how to use things like iPads and computers as well as differnt apps and programs.
“I like to teach it to teachers because it’s fun and I feel great because they’re older than me and I thought that they would know it, but they don’t,” said Gen YES student Olivia Adkins.
Students will also learn to implement a work ticket system at their schools in which they will respond to teacher requests for technology help.
