About STLP

What is STLP?

STLP20_logo_800x279

The Kentucky Department of Education’s Student Technology Leadership Program (STLP™) uses project-based learning principals to empower student learning and achievement through the utilization (and creation) of technology based solutions to school and community needs.

An appointed school coordinator guides students to create products, provide services or carry out projects that help the school and community.

STLP is open to all students in P-16. No student should be turned away from being part of STLP. Restricting membership is not part of an active recruitment and retention process.

STLP allows students the opportunity to demonstrate what they know in various ways called categories. STLP taps into the students’ interest and can challenge and motivate them.

STLP provides a means for students to design, create, collaborate and learn. 

The STLP Mission

The Mission of the Student Technology Leadership Program (STLP) is to advance the individual capabilities of students; to motivate all students; and to create leadership opportunities through the use of technology.

The Six Goals of STLP

The Six Goals of STLP

 

STLP is…

PROJECTS
PROJECTS

Schools design projects to accomplish the Mission and 6 Goals.

Projects can be short or long term. Some projects may continue year after year.

At times, projects can morph into a service. The school’s project is so constant and expected that it becomes a service to the school over time.

The project supports the school and community in the use of technology, helps others learn with the use of technology or solves local or global issues.

Projects developed by the STLP members will be stronger when projects are:

  • Related to a need in the building and/or community
  • Carried out by the students over time with adult guidance
  • Engaging and challenging to students
  • Centered around critical thinking and problem solving
  • Student interest or emerging technology topics
  • Reinforced by school and the community and are part of the school culture
  • Centered around the STLP Mission and Goals
  • Demonstrated by students and allow for tech standards to grow
  • Partnered across grades, schools, communities (local, state, national and global)
PRODUCTS
PRODUCTS

STLP students regularly create professional products for the classroom, school and community.

Products must be entirely original and created by the student. The best products are ones that are used for STLP projects and services, the classroom for learning, or in the community.

Some products are a result of an authentic task and have strong purpose and audience.

Products may be created after school or at home, with the teacher and parent verifying the original work.

Check the category to determine if the product is an individuals or teams production.

Local teachers and community persons may guide the student in learning about creating products.

KET field consultants can assist schools in understanding video production and script writing, etc.

SERVICE
SERVICE

Many services develop due to student skill sets developing to routinely offer assistance in a particular area. The service may result from needs in the building or district.

Some services develop from a project that mushrooms into a service the school will provide.

Some projects and products are so frequent and popular they become a service the STLP School provides to others.

Often times the service is free of charge.

Sometimes the service can develop into a service and can generate funds for the STLP School.

Students that have skills in newscast communications, speaking and writing often excel in the service category.

Students demonstrate technical knowledge and know how; can problem solve technical issues in classrooms, school or district.

Students working with technical projects, maintaining networks, running help desks/desktop support and offering informal troubleshooting should apply for the Engineer Service.

Engineer Service

One special area of service is the STLP Engineer program.  STLP students gather technical knowledge with hands-on activities and self-study. Experience could also come from being a member of the school or district help desk, taking technical classes, or working in tech after school. Engineers sometimes gain vendor certifications offered in high schools across Kentucky.

STLP projects, services and products tie directly to:

A STLP student should be the model for all other students in the building.

When designing materials, STLP students should be the content creators of original work.

As a good digital citizen, STLP students need to properly cite and credit anyone else’s work when designing projects and services.

If others see projects or services in other classes, the district, region or state, proper citations are required.

All products submitted to STLP for judging should be original. Products submitted for Winter Virtual Judging should be an original idea, words, image, photo or media.  Judges should not recognize an image, photo or text from another source or person.

Some partners with STLP will not post materials if there are any issues with copyright.

    STLP Regional Fall Showcase

    STLP Event: Fall Showcase

    Fall Showcase Information

    The school level is the foundation and most important area of involvement for STLP.  From the school level, there are often numerous STLP worthy projects already occurring that would make great Showcase Projects to present at the regional level.  If not, then any group can develop, registrar, and present a project of their own design.

    Schools decide what projects, products and services the STLP will offer the school and community.  These day-to-day, week-to-week activities/projects allow students to gain technology and leadership skills.

    The schools can expand the participation from school level to a regional level. Eight sites around Kentucky host a STLP Fall Showcase  Many Fall Showcase sites are on a college campus. Having a showcase on a college campus site impacts the future post secondary plans of the STLP students, provides college role models, and allows for university interactions with school districts.

    The opportunity to celebrate and come together motivates and extends the local STLP school. The opportunity to display student work, to demonstrate technology-integrated skills for other students, teachers, administrators, university and the public is a major objective. When one school sees how another school uses technology for student achievement and classroom integration, this has a direct impact of what the school, teachers and students will do in the future.

    Attending and interviewing at this event is a big deal in the life of some of our STLP students, as noted in stories from students, teachers and parents. This event gives a real audience to their learning, a real purpose in creating resumes and sharpening 21st Century Skills. These students’ skills will impact Kentucky’s future economy. The students will be able to compete globally. Leadership skills will bloom.

    When the students meet and compete the whole day is called Fall Showcase. The events are designed to support and extend authentic learning via project based learning concepts.

     

    Students demonstrate skills at the event, such as:

    1. Implement, market and design the project or presentation for various purposes, audiences and situations
    2. Build leadership skills
    3. Utilize research, critical thinking skills to inquiry/problem-solve and make informed decisions for learning
    4. Create ideas, products, and presentations that are innovative and creative
    5. Communicate and collaborate with school and community persons
    6. Communicate and interview with adults, outside the school building, in a professional manner
    7. Practice and engage in legal, safe and ethical use of technology
    8. Plan for post secondary education

     

    Common elements of good projects:

    • Products and new ideas are sometimes generated from the project.
    • Students have to create and carry out the project over time.
    • Students must be able to discuss the project in depth. (Age appropriate)
    • The project is tied to many human and technology resources.
    • The project makes an impact to other persons, the school or community

     

    The three types of showcase projects are:

    1. Community Service: projects that extend outside the classroom to help the school and community
    2. Instructional: projects that impact classroom instruction and help in student or adult learning
    3. Technical Expertise: projects that are specific to the use of hardware and software; or STEM topics

    [h4How can Fall Showcase benefit the STLP Coordinator?[/h4]

    STLP Coordinators that attend Fall Showcase connect with other coordinators to discuss project, product or service ideas. First time coordinators find the fall showcase a time to discover what a project really looks like and how the event leads to state.

    …schools that invite their own technology director, principal, administrators, superintendents or local legislators often find increased support for their STLP…

    Often judges that attend fall showcase for the first time can return to the school and help the school with other STLP events.  Likewise, schools that invite their own technology director, principal, administrators, superintendents or local legislators often find increased support for their STLP.  Hearing about the great things STLP can do is one thing, but given an opportunity to see STLP in action can be a tremendously impactful experience for your district and community leadership.

    • 9:30-9:50 Registration, check in by schools
    • 9:30-10:00 Students report to set up or report for an interview
    • 10:00-12:00 Judging of all categories by judges
    • 10:00-12:00 Showcase is open to the public for visitors, so schools need students at the table Students eat lunch and depart back to the school
    • 12:00-2:00 Judging team continues to work and complete required paper work
    Make sure all competing students read and understand the rubric and are prepared for any interviews. Rubrics can be found in the STLP Handbook, by viewing the “What Categories Do Students Compete In At Fall Showcase” category above, or downloaded as a combined .ZIP file by clicking HERE.
    Even if your STLP group does not submit a Fall Showcase project, they would benefit attending and seeing other student leaders demonstrating technology. New STLP schools, new coordinators and beginning STLP students are welcome to attend for the learning experience.
    Food for purchase is at most sites. Schools may also bring in a sack lunch at every site. Coolers for food and drinks are allowed. Many of the college campuses have student centers in which your students may eat. We consider this an educational experience since students will be interacting with others on campus. Some schools like to eat at a food establishment while on the way back to school.
    Deadline to register to attend a showcase is Oct. 30. *To gain a table and set up at time to be judged, a school must register online and provide a judge. Due to large numbers that register, a late school could be turned away from their first choice showcase site.
    Fall Showcase registration is currently closed.

    What will judges do when scoring products and services?

    1. Read an email and be reminded by the school to complete the virtual judging in the specified time
    2. Open the email with the information about judging
    3. Look for the group you have been assigned to judge; each item has a title and a URL location
    4. Review Copyright. All work the students do is to be original. All judges must look for copyright issues first. Look at the product. If you see any part of the product that seems familiar in text or graphics, or image, then question it.
    5. Open the rubric that matches your assigned category to judge, open the group list of pieces to judge (look for your name)
    6. Click the URL location using your web browser and find by name the item in your group list
    7. Using the rubric score the item- the purpose is to decide the best piece/score among your group
    8. There can be no ties so the best needs to be the highest score among your group
    9. Record the scores on the group sheet provide
    10. Return scores on group sheet on time via email for your assigned group

    Pieces will continue to be judged by other judges until the top best pieces are selected

    The piece from one scoring group gets placed into another group until the best pieces arise. These final pieces will be invited to state.)

    The best pieces in each product and service category above will be invited to State Championship.

    “It isn’t just about winning – it’s about learning, helping people with projects and having a good time.”

    The State Championship allows students from across the state to come together and demonstrate for other students, school and community persons what they know and can do with technology.

    Cinemania  is just one of the awesome activities for students participating in the STLP State Competition each spring.  Cinemania is an, “up all night” video competition where your team has 24 hours to write, shoot, edit, produce and post a video that includes a number of required props, slogans and fun items.

    Get with your team to discuss ideas, roles, and jobs – all the way from brainstorming, to shooting, to editing, and final production. Make sure everyone in your group has a voice in the process.
