Kentucky’s Department of Education held its eighth annual Student Technology Leadership Program (STLP) State Championship on April 22 in Lexington’s Rupp Arena. From the STLP website, “The State Championship allows students from across the state to come together and demonstrate for other students, school and community persons what they know and can do with technology.”
This year’s event was the first state championship coordinated by new program director, Jeff Sebulsky, formerly of Clark County Schools. He has impressed many with his expertise and creative drive.
Hundreds of K-12 schools from districts across Kentucky were represented. In addition to the displays of robotics, coding, app and game making, and other projects, a trip up and down the rows of student displays once again showed a big interest in making curriculum-based video production projects at all levels. From environmental to health topics, from digital citizenship to the arts, there was quite a good representation this year of schools who support student-produced video production.
