  1. 1) Qualities that make up a great leader would include having a back bone, having a personality of which people respect, or uniting a group together as one.

    2) I perceive my role as being able to kindly assist anyone in school with technology needs of any sort. It requires excellent problem solving capabilities, as well as social skills.

    3) SkillsUSA prepares students for their future by helping them build up good study habits as well as vital skills such as commitment or respect.

    4) I could see teachers mostly needing help with small, unsophisticated problems such as why their projector doesn't display their computer correctly or how to make presentations of which excite students about the topic.

  2. 1. I think that a good leader should have the following traits, they should be smart, take their time on decisions for the better of the group they are leading. A good leader should be brave and fearless when leading to give courage to the group.

    2. I am aware that I have knowledge and experience with technology and should use it to help my community and others around me or on campus.

    3. SkillsUSA is the result when students, teachers and industry come together to create a skilled workforce, helping students to succeed.

    4. Teachers may have trouble with working a printer, setting up a website, using power point or googledocs, sending e-mails to multiple students or faculty.

  3. 1. A good leader must take charge of things, can't have everyone just wandering around. A good leader would have to be respected and take responsibility.

    2. A role I perceive is to serve, I'm here to serve to the best of my ability

    3. Skills USA is an organization where Students, Teachers, and the Industry work together to make sure the world has a skilled work force.

    4. Mostly projector problems, a little website and other things related to website making problems here and there. Not much other than these problems.

  4. 1. Being a Good Leader takes responsibility, self-awareness, and the ability to stay on task.

    2. We preserve our roles by keeping up to date on technologies and making time to help teachers when possible.

    3. Skills USA is a non-profit organisation that works with students to help them exceed in school. It will help you become more organized, which means that you'll be more inclined to work hard and become a leader.


    4.Teachers usually have problems with chords or files, or setting up e-mail lists and ect. Most of my teachers have had problems with video and audio, which I have been able to solve easily in the past.

  7. 1.) Many traits and abilities play a role in good leaders, such as experience, persistence, an inspiring enthusiastic, holds personal ethics, etc. Those who have already been through, have the knowledge, objectives, and future ideas in which to change. Leaving a "good" leader.

    2.) I perceive my role in two main mains, personal and professional. Personal being: connecting with others and recruiting them in order to achieve maximum success in society... in other words, increase intellect as much as possible. In the professional way, I believe I need to complete the assigned duties with excellence, and always know that there are high ranks to achieve and more to be done; there is no limit.

    3.) SkillsUSA is an organization that allows students in high school and college demonstrate workforce skills and prepare you for future careers in almost every field of work. This in turn, helps the world have better jobs in micro-evolution.

    4.) We are in the digital age. Technological involvement in the school allows for more depth in subject and student focus. Our school is adding more and more technology every day into the classroom. That being said, I am guessing over the next few weeks we are going to have to teach and share the potential of education with the implementation of technology, hardware additions, online education tools, and present development in electronics.

  11. 1. A leader consists of a person who can make good judgement calls in a time of need. They also can lead people in the right direction if the person doesn't know where to go.

    2. I perceive my self as a person who can help when nobody else can. For example if the teacher needed help to get the projector working I would be there to help.

    3. Schools USA is a group that has students and teachers gather to share and or collaborate. This collaboration would give me more information about how to tackle objectives such as setting up a printer etc.

    4. I would potentially be asked how to use the latest Mac OS. In addition they would ask how to set up a Projector or Printer. The reason they would ask use because we the students know how to use technology.

  12. 1. The qualities of a good leader are being a role model, being brave, leads people into battles, never backs down, is very knowledgeable and works hard.

    2. Lesser people come to us when they have problems with technology. Being in GenYES gives us a sense of power and importance.

    3. SkillsUSA tests your leader qualities in many different way so that your skills as a leader are challenged and improved

    4. They will probably ask us to fix their printer or connect them to Internet.

  17. 1.) What qualities make a good leader to me? I believe that a good leader is someone who essentially leads a group of people or just one person to success.

    2.) What role do I perceive as a student tech leader on Shadow Mountain campus? I think that I am a decent tech leader, not bad but not the best either. My role is to help the teachers of Shadow Mountain in their struggle to "fix the internet".

    3.) What is SkillsUSA and how might it help me to become a good student tech leader on Shadow Mountain campus? SkillsUSA is an organization that helps students and teachers excel in their workforce. It can help me by teaching me how to become a better leader in my workforce.

    4.)What kind of jobs might I have to do on Shadow Mountain campus for the teachers, staff and fellow students? I may have to help a teacher with their macbook pro's or somethings is wrong with there printers, or maybe help a student with the desktops in the library not doing something they are supposed to do.

  18. 1. a good leader can give orders, understand what's happening and be able to watch/control multiple people.

    2. I don't really think of myself as a tech leader, but i percieve my role to be helping people with technology to the best of my abilities and even make things, they already know how to do, quicker or better.

    3. SkillsUSA unites teachers, students, and industry to help all three at the same time. This lets the student be in more control and learn a bit better what it's like to be in a job.

    4. I may be asked to help set-up printers, fix errors on macbooks or chromebooks, maybe a bit of wire management for charging stations for the chrombooks, and even set-up a program or website.

  19. 1) A good leader needs to have management skills that can organize a group and properly lead them. He (or she) needs to have the skill of time management. Making sure that everything that needs to be done and that everyone i sworking efficiently.

    2) As a GenYES student, it is my duty to know when to help a teacher. Even if they don't directly ask for it. It's our job as tech students on campus to give ourselves to the school and help any way we can with technology.

    3) SkillsUSA is a program that involves students and teachers working together to make sure all technology present is up to date and working effectively for everyone to use.

    4) What most teachers and other students always need help with is the chromebooks. Since Shadow Mountain has gotten the privilege to get such amazing devices, every teacher now has the option of using them for their classroom. It seems essential that every GenYES student learns to use and fix chromebooks to their best potential.

  24. 1. There are many qualities making a good leader. There is courage, good public speaker, he must take charge, not let people slack off from what they are supposed to do, he must be honest about what is going on, he must be strong though not necessarily physically, and is able to deal with challenges and problems that you encounter.

    2. I perceive my role as a learning tech leader, learning through experience how to help others using technology and show others through presenting how certain technologies work so they can have some kind of background to how it works. But my main goal is to help the teachers with technology when they needed.

    3. SkillsUSA is an organization that is there to help students become better leaders/ workers in society. This organization would probably make me better at speaking to larger groups of people and get over my fear of being in front of many people.

    4. They will probably ask about their computers and how to fix their projectors. Though I do not know what else I will be helping with. I will probably be helping with computer problems and small things like that.

  25. 1. What makes a good leader is that the person knows what he is doing and he is not chicken to talk to people and that is creative and thinks out of the box.

    2. My job in GenYES in shadow Mountain is to help teachers learn on how to use the technology they use but understand it more! and have less problems.

    3. SkillsUSA teaches you how to not be shy to talk to tons of people on stage and to talk out load and not very little and helps you get power on to control a group.

    4. What type on technology should be in this school is maybe Ipads because Ipads can be more easy put away and less hassle. and maybe a little more fun to use.

  26. 1.I think that a good leader is someone who is willing to do whatever they can to make sure that things are in order.

    2.I don't see myself as incredibly well educated when it comes to technology, but I know that as a tech leader on campus, I am to learn and know my feild so I can be as much help as I can on campus.

    3.SkillsUSA is a website where students, teachers, and others can help to make a more skilled workforce.

    4.I expect for there to be much work to do concerning anything from the media center to just helping teachers with basic problems with their laptops. It all depends on what comes up i the future.

    ReplyDelete
  27. 1. Strong, compassionate, stern and serious when they need to be, someone who isn't afraid to be controversial to his/her peers.

    2. I perceive my role as rather important, because without someone like us who can help anyone on campus with anything, there'd be less happening due to technical difficulties.

    3. SkillsUSA is where students and teachers team up to build the student's skills to be able to get into an actual career. It will help you develop skills for leadership by providing hands-on experience.

    4. We could be asked to find a program, fix a printer, a projector, a doc cam, or even help with a teacher's phone (I've dealt with this kind of thing before).

  28. 1.) The qualities that make a good leader is that you can be trusted by other people and that you can complete tasks fast and easily.

  29. 1. A good leader has honesty, ability to compromise, communication, humorous, motivated, intelligent, commitment, confidence, creativity, positive attitude,and inspiration. All are critical characteristics that describe a good leader.

    2. As my role, I'd like to help in any way I can. On a regular basis, I help around whenever people are having trouble around me. Helping out our school is our mission as GenYes students, but we want to make sure we know how to help when the time comes.
    3. Skills USA helps students become better leaders and smarter in order to help improve America's workforce.
    4. Last year we experimented with iPads for school purposes. I really liked it. Also it would be cool if teachers got smartboards. The other part of the question includes iPads and smartboards, but also things they already have like the chromebooks.

  36. 1. I believe that a good leader is one who can speak to crowds as well as to individuals. He is able to dispel arguments among peers and can present solid ideas.

    2. As STLs we need to be professional in all that we do on campus while being capable of thinking outside the box and troubleshooting.

    3. SkillsUSA is an organization that trains students to become leaders in the outside world. They strive to instill a purpose in students while helping them reach their dream job.

    4. Well obviously with the shipments and distribution of the new MacBooks, teachers will need help working the new OS and transferring data. Along with the usual needs such as broken projectors and such.

  38. 1: A good leader is a person who is able to do all that should be done under the worst of circumstances. They are able to look defeat in the eye and still move forward strongly, and will never back down from a noble cause.

    2: As a student tech leader I feel that we should do our best to live up to the standards that have been set for us in each of the teacher's and student's minds. If we strive to do this then we will continue to be the technology leaders that are looked up to on campus.

    3: SkillsUSA is an organization that is joined by those who have a strong yearning to become a good leader. It provides the knowledge of how to work well in a leading role, a skill that is beneficial to all areas of everyone's life.

    4: While the new school year is starting, many new technologies are being introduced on campus and old ones must be relearned. I believe that each time there is trouble in one of these areas it will be a GenYES student's job to help out those in need.

  42. TAKE TWO
    1.) Many concepts play an important role in every good leader, including experience, efficiency and personality. Those who have accomplished these things have the knowledge of what to change.

    2.) My role has two main points, personal and professional. My personal would be communicating with people and helping them be the best they can be. In other words, increase intelligence in as many people as possible. In the professional way, I believe I need to complete the assignments with
    efficiency and speed. and always know that there are goals to achieve no matter how far one thinks they are.
    3.) Skills USA is a lot like are Avid is. TO start off it builds leadership in kids. This is exactly how avid is. Avid teaches binder skills and organization and so does skills USA. Something that is different is the spiritual. As far as I know avid does everything like skills USA except the spiritual part.
    4. Technology is all around us and always changing so honestly right now I think something that will help with any in class assignments could work. Or they could be a device to help kids log on to the computers or i pads with a time limit to help with overflow of the library.

  43. 1. I think the qualities of a good leader would be leadership, loyalty, responsibility, respect, ownership. It also depends on someone who would have good communication skills, someone you can depend on, and to be able to talk to crowds, delegate ,and get stuff done.

    2. I would like to try help out with anything that is within my ability at technology around the campus and even though i do not have that much skill in technology, i would like to learn more so that i could help out more because this class is really hard for me so i would like to gain better skills so i can help other people understand the concept of what we are doing in this class.

    3. Skills USA is a website where students, teachers, and others can help to make a more skilled workforce that is joined by those who have a strong yearning to become a good leader. It provides the knowledge of how to work well in a leading role, a skill that is beneficial to all areas of everyone's life. What I can do to make it better is to get people who don't understand the concept of their assignment is to explain it in a way that they will be able to understand.

    4. Technology is all around us and always changing so honestly right now I think something that will help with any in class assignments could work. Or they could be a device to help kids log on to the computers or i pads with a time limit to help with overflow of the library. we will always need more space for more students who need to use the computer they can always ask someone to help them when they are in need of help with assignments or with other work. i am one of those people who need to concentrate more on work so i can get things done on time so by getting new computers will really help with a lot of things that i need to work on.
