Tips for the STLP Coordinator

Being a Facilitator for your STLP

Specifically, the STLP Coordinator plays a central role ensuring that STLP students stay informed, aware of deadlines, familiar with rubrics, etc. by acting as the main point of contact for their school. However, by no means is the STLP Coordinator the sole educator helping to bring STLP to students/students to STLP.

Along with support and endorsement form Superintendents, Principals, and District EdTech leaders (DTC, CIO), the STLP Coordinator plays a key part in making STLP a successful experience for all participants.

Major STLP Events: The Big 3

Focus On Purposefully Selected Events

The work a school does in the building to help support technology and help students and teachers gain technology skills is the most important work an STLP can do.

Many schools begin reaching out in the community to help that community using technology.

A school can decide to become involved outside the building by attending an event in which student demonstrations and recognition is woven into each event.

When a school leaves the building for one of the events, a judge must be asked to attend, too.

Along with support and endorsement form Superintendents, Principals, and District EdTech leaders (DTC, CIO), the STLP Coordinator plays a key part in making STLP a successful experience for all participants.

Schools decide which events in which to participate. Online registration is required to attend or participate.  STLP groups are welcome to register as “Attend Only” for Regionals or State Championship (meaning your group will be onsite to experience the event, but not participate in any competitions).

How To Participate

Helpful list of things to consider/do:

  • Schools should ask principals, DTC/CIO for support (and $$) to attend the event
  • Think about fundraisers to support meals, travel and overnight stays
  • Obtain transportation to the event based upon school and board policy
  • Share a bus with other schools in the district that are attending
  • Belong to the listserv and read all listserv emails concerning the events.
  • Register online prior to deadline dates (earlier leaves room for mistakes)
  • Select the strongest Judge to represent your school. Keep them informed.
  • Prepare all permission slips prior to attending (per school policies/procedures)
  • Obtain rubrics and share with students. Take advantage of these guides!
  • Secure chaperones to assist as needed, well in advance of events
  • Make name tags for students and adults attending, include your judge
  • Send a press release to local media, local state representative, etc.
  • Remind your judge to attend training before event, arrive on time, etc.
  • Send feedback after the events; help us keep STLP the best it can be!
  • Ask questions prior to the event by emailing Jeff (jeff.sebulsky@education.ky.gov)

Real Work, In Real Situations, In Real Time

Survey Your School/Community to Address Needs with STLP

STLP schools should look around the school and community for ideas and real work:

  • School projects, products and services which arise from opportunities
  • Join the listserv, follow @STLPKentucky and watch for more opportunities via Facebook
  • Look for local issues to address with innovative technology solutions
  • Look for a community or global collaborative partner
  • Think about what needs filling, needs help in the building or community
  • Think about what students need to know
  • Think about what students have an interest in and pursue those interests
