I want to take this same idea and put it out for all districts for all individual students. Each student leads the conference in front of parents, explaining what they are doing in school to get ready for the world.

These initiatives are really good, Student tech team leaders, and the GenY and other initiatives that empower students. I was empowered by a student who was supposed to be put in special ed because he could not write, and I allowed him to use the computer in my room. Well, we all know that one computer, even long ago gets attention, but he also used it as a tool for me. So we empowered each other, as he never went to special education, instead he wrote an essay as a 4th grader and was rewarded with a computer for himself, and one for me. We chose to have a mac and pc and we taught each other , and the rest of the students in the room, and that's how I got started. When I was slow to do things, like the program for a play, or recipes for the potluck dinner I always had at the beginning of the year, he and others rose to the challenge. I could write a book but I will stop here. I know exactly what you mean by growing their own skills. Thanks for the reminder. Bonnie
