Our school has a severe shortage of staff development time, so I try to use my students to promote computer use throughout our district. One of the programs that I teach is PowerPoint, which is software used to make presentations and something any teacher can use. After my students have completed the unit on this software, their final assignment is to work with a teacher in the district to develop a presentation for one of their instructional units. The students get a look at a 'real' application of the program and the teachers really appreciate having a student help them prepare their teaching material. Even if the teachers do not continue to use the program, they are at least aware of the technology that is available to them within the district.
