Crazy Technology

Ok, my apologies once again, I really need help with this blog stuff. I forgot to blog from our last class on the 18th and was so concentrated on looking at my vision and SWOt papers that forgot about this. I am sorry.

Ok so I enjoyed looking for grants that are out there and available for teachers. There are many different kinds of grants, from small, single classroom grants to large school system inclusive grants. The process for applyign cna be just as varied. I think that due to the economic situation, many people and school systems are looking for ways to get the most bang for their buck andgrants and partnerships may provide the answers.

Technology is also making it easier to find and apply for many of these grants, you don't have to read about it in a magazine, newsletter or some other from of paper publication. Most of them you can even submit the application online as well. These skills are ones we are developing and we need to make sure we are also teaching these same skills to our students, give them a leg up on the future.


  1. I agree there are lots of grants out there now! I am waiting to hear about on that I applied for because of the class we are in! Hope you found one or two that you could acctually apply for!

  2. I agree- if not for this class, I don't think most of us would have ever thought about researching business partnerships and grants. Were you able to find any potential business partners to help out in your classroom? I had this vision of Chick-fil-A sponsoring my classroom and I would be forced to put their logo on all of my worksheets :) Glad to know it is not really like that!

  3. I agree with you, as well, Cathleen. With budget cuts and no money available from your district or state, grants are the way to go. I love the online option for applying. The possibilities are endless for bringing technology into your classroom. Good luck! I hope you get everything you need.
