EAGLE CHARTER TECHNOLOGY CLUB –SWAT TEAM
(STUDENTS WORKING TO ADVANCE TECHNOLOGY)
SWAT Teams are taking the lead in supporting teachers and students with technology needs at their schools and in their communities.
Nationally, there are now hundreds of SWAT Team Programs at the elementary, middle, and high school levels throughout the United States and also some internationally.
The mission of the nationally recognized SWAT concept is to promote student leadership training, address technology competencies, provide outreach to the community through parent involvement, corporate support, and student community service, and to encourage collaboration among students and staff.
This includes training, field trips, special projects, and fun activities including social networking sites such as facebook, twitter, and linkedin. Students are also trained to use equipment such as digital cameras, video cameras, computers, etc.
The students are selected through a process of administrative/teacher nomination and/or student interest.
