See the Attached Document, How To Start a SWAT Club, (Student Technology Leadership Program) in your school. Developed and copyrighted by Lucy Miller-Ganfield Students Working To Advance Technology, www.swatweb.net The mission of the nationally recognized SWAT concept is to promote student leadership training, address technology competencies, provide outreach to the community through parent involvement, corporate support, and student community service, and to encourage collaboration among student SWAT Teams nationally. A SWAT Team is directed by a motivated teacher and is comprised of any number of students who wish to form a structured group to advance the technology program at their school. The students advance their level of technical skills while also assisting other students, teachers and the community with computer skills. Students are required to fill out a job application and interview to be on the SWAT Team. National and State Technology Competencies are addressed as the foundation of the SWAT Team's Mission. The SWAT Team may consist of specialized "Task Force Teams" formed to address the job force objectives and the technology goals at any school. Some suggested SWAT Task Force Teams are: Web Site Masters Teacher Internet Researchers Computer Buddies Media Crew Mobile Unit/Community Service Central Unit/Computer Maintenance SWAT objectives and activities align with NETS National Education Technology Standards for Students Please take time to visit the SWAT site,at www.swatweb.net and please consider using the SWAT Resources to begin your program.
