Teen software program to help high school students use video game consoles
By Kristin M. LeFevrePosted June 06, 2018 04:03:23Teachers at a Georgia high school are testing a software program that can help high-school students use a video game console.
The program was developed by Atlanta Tech Partners, which provides video game training to educators and provides online game resources.
The school district is testing the software with the school district’s students, but has not set a timeline for the test.
The Georgia Department of Education is in the process of evaluating the software, which will be evaluated by the state Department of Technology.
It will be released soon, and will be the first time it is used at a public school, officials said.
The software is called TechConnect and it was developed for students at the Georgia Tech College of Education, and is part of the school’s digital technology curriculum.
TechConnect uses the online gaming community to train students in the skills needed to be successful gamers, said Matt Gollop, vice president of business development for the Atlanta Tech Partnership.
The Atlanta Tech Partner is a partnership of TechConnect, Atlanta Tech College, and the Atlanta Georgia Tech Community Association.
Gollops told the News that the program will help students who want to take the next step to getting their high school diploma and become college-bound.
“There are lots of students who would be great candidates for this course, and we want to help them get through the course,” Gollopp said.
“They don’t need to spend all of their time sitting in front of a computer, or working on their homework.
They can sit down with a teacher and work on something they can actually do.”
Georgia Tech is also using the software at the College of Engineering and the School of Public Health in Atlanta.
Golls said the students will be able to use the software online.
