I’ve been asked to present what students are doing with technology at the K-16 Alliance Meeting in St. George this week. With my co-presenter, Dr. Deb Hill from SUU, we’ll be discussing what technologies and apps are being used effectively in the classroom these days, and show some example projects that ANY student could create.

The examples that I’ll be showing have come from the work we’ve done on the TEAM Grant. This grant has provided 5 iPads to Special Needs teachers in 8 schools from the SEDC region. You can learn more about the grant here, and you can see all of the examples that we’ve posted here. The projects that I’ll be¬†highlighting¬†are shown in the Google Presentation below.

I came across Donors Choose this morning, a site that is facilitating donations for mini classroom grants. It works on an interesting point system – when you get a grant you ‘spend’ points but then can earn them back by doing some simple follow-up activities so that you can be funded multiple times. Here’s the address:
Check out the quick breakdown of what can be requested, the participating vendors, and description of the point system. 100% for Kids is a similar, local charity, but you can only be awarded once per year.

Just a copule of classroom grant ideas that can supplement or attempted in place of the Qwest Classroom Grants. I’ll share more as I come across them.

Good luck!
