Student tech Colton Brake excited to be working with new technology
Blake looking forward to using his problem-solving skills on technology
JAG: Why did you decide to be a student tech?
Colton Brake: Initially, my teacher proposed it to me because she knew that I was into technology. She told me about it, and I realized the opportunities that it would provide me and what I’d be able to get out of it. That was really the biggest thing that made me do it, and I knew that it would be a fun class to take. Problem solving is something I like to do.
J: What is your favorite part about being a student tech?
CB: Problem solving is a lot of fun for me, and doing it through technology is also a lot of fun. Also, getting to learn the new Mac interfaces is another challenging part of it, but that makes it more fun.
J: What is one thing you want students, teachers and/or parents to know about the MacBooks?
CB: Once you really get to know [the MacBooks], they can be really good for homework. They’re a good way to organize in my opinion. I think that I’m going to start organizing my homework on my MacBook instead of on my agenda and just keep everything that I need on my MacBook.
J: What’s one lesson or thing you have learned by being a student tech?
CB: I’d say that technology is something that’s really going to affect how we work. Being an IT person, you realize that there’s a lot of people that aren’t entirely sure what they’re doing. The first week we were running around, almost sweating, going to all the different rooms.
