Technology students lead the way
Blackburn is a dynamic school committed to empowering our students in whatever field of endeavour they may shine. We have some super savvy IT students, so we created a Student Technology Team to make the most of their skills.
Students helping students at the IT Kiosk
Our Student Tech Team of troubleshooters are being prepared to play an integral role in our strategy of providing the best technical support and resources to students and staff to enhance learning opportunities and academic achievement.
Working with our own IT department, the Student Technology Team operate an IT Kiosk in the library at lunchtimes for students who are having software or hardware issues. The students are being trained by our own IT staff to provide troubleshooting and general assistance.
The program is a stunning example of cross-age tutoring, peer-to-peer cooperation and project-based learning.
