“The miracle of gratitude is that it shifts your perception to such an extent that it changes the world you see."
— Dr. Robert Holden


For Thanksgiving this year, we want to hear all about your gratitude. Specifically your gratitude for your students. We flipped the script and asked teachers to tell us about a time when a student taught them something about technology.

We hope these stories will inspire you to think creatively about utilizing technology in new ways in the classroom. We also hope these stories inspire gratitude - the key to creating a positive culture and growth mindset in and outside the walls of the classroom.

How to Start a Student Internship Program Like “The Chrome Squad”

the Royse City High School “Chrome Squad” in Royse City, Texas September 27, 2017

FINAL chrome_squad_final-1.jpg

It all started with an idea. Our school wanted to bring more technology into the classroom. In order to help roll this out, our district created a 1:1 initiative called Connected for Learning, which would be managed by a specialist and a team of helpers. The twist? This team of helpers wouldn’t be made up of adults… they would be students. What started as an innovative idea would become The Royse City High School “Chrome Squad”.

Today, we have a full-fledged student internship program that gives students the chance to learn new skills, gain experience in technology, and keep our classrooms connected. Here’s how we did it, and how you can create a student internship like “The Chrome Squad” at your school, too.
