Date of broadcast: Tue, 03/19/19

School districts can leverage one-to-one environments by creating certification programs that provide students with real-world training in device repair, customer service, and management, which can put them on a path to industry certification.

Watch this web seminar to learn how a school district in Minnesota launched an e-learning repair certification program in collaboration with Acer to extend project-based learning opportunities and support IT tech teams. An IT coordinator and teacher will also discuss how students are gaining knowledge in computer hardware replacement, plus college and career preparation.

Topics will include:

  • Establishing industry partnerships and training students about various device parts
  • Creating a self-paced course sequence that provides for on-site assessment
  • Laying the groundwork for student technical support and help desks
