Digital Wish has unveiled 63 new technology grant awards for K-12 classrooms. By simply uploading a technology-based lesson plan to Digital Wish's lesson plan library, teachers become eligible for smartphones, software and IT curriculum grant awards. New grants will be announced regularly, and awarded each month. See the grants calendar here.
Just submit an original lesson plan on Digital Wish to enter each monthly contest. Lesson plan submissions must demonstrate creativity, student involvement, and describe how the classroom technology would be utilized to complete the project. Lesson plans are then shared with other educators in the free Digital Wish Lesson Library. Educators can find and download categorized lesson plans from the library. See the library here.
The grants calendar has a combination of recurring and themed grants, with something new and exciting happening each month to encourage repeat participation! With over $15,000 worth of awards up for grabs, teachers across the country will soon be able to enhance their curricula with great new technology!
"Digital Wish grants are a wonderful way for teachers to get new technology in their classrooms while sharing lesson plans with fellow educators. Some lesson plans have been viewed and downloaded by teachers thousands of times. We're thrilled to be awarding some exciting technology from our partners and we’re looking forward to announcing more grants each month," said Heather Chirtea, Digital Wish's executive director and founder.
Digital Wish frequently announces grants and promotions first through Twitter and Facebook, so it’s worthwhile to “like” and “subscribe” to Digital Wish!
