Now for the fine print you won’t read! Because the Tech Sherpa Certification Program is all about students helping others through technology education, the final task is creation of their own tutorial. The lesson they create should be a technology related tool, lesson, or idea that can be taught to others. The medium students can use is very flexible, but there are some criteria for entry into the certification program:
Participating students must be at least 13 years old. Younger students can, of course, create lessons, but are not eligible for Tech Sherpa Certification.
All resources for the lesson must be included in their Coursebook. This includes links to external sources, videos or other resources created by the student.
All lessons or tutorials will be original creations of the students. You may link to other sources for reference, but it should be an original work by the student.
All tutorials will be released under a Creative Commons Sharealike License.
