In the 1970s and 1980s, many schools started Audio-Video clubs where students were trusted to setup projectors and other equipment in classrooms. In this decade, some schools are revisiting the idea by having students assist with help desk and hardware repairs. These ideas include after-school clubs, official classes, internships and more. Come and see the ways that Cairo-Durham CSD has applied the idea over the last 20 years. We'll discuss what worked and what didn't. We'll also discuss how to differentiate the approach to fit the needs of different students, how to get your Technology department on board and more. Time will be set aside for lots of questions, so we can help you develop the ideas that fit best with your schools.

I started helping my school's IT department in 2017 when I was chosen. Before this starting in 2013 I started experimenting with technology and it evolved from there, outside of school I help my family and the community with technical support.
