First-Ever Student Technology Leadership Summit

The next generation of technology leaders will assemble on April 16, as Maine East High School hosts the first ever Student Technology Leadership Summit. Jaime Casap, Google’s Chief Education Evangelist, will present the keynote address. Mr. Casap works with schools and educational organizations to bring technological innovations into educational settings. He has worked with hundreds of school districts and built partnerships across the country.
For the remainder of the day, student technology leaders will take center stage. Making a series of presentations in 50-minute breakout sessions will be students who work technology help desks at their schools. All the sessions have been coordinated and planned by the students from Maine East, South and West High Schools, Evanston High School, Leyden High School and Niles North and West High Schools. Drawing from more than 30 schools, more than 130 students will be presenting sessions.
