MicroGrant Program for Educators & Teachers
Being an educator or a teacher in a classroom today without the proper educational technology is becoming all too common of a problem. Current technology offers students and teachers alike the benefit to achieve more than ever was thought possible. Did you know, that according to a LEAD Commission Poll, 96% of Teachers and 92% of Parents find that the integration of technology into schools and learning is highly important to students’ education and achievement? That’s nearly 100% of Teachers and Parents in agreement that educational technology is a highly valuable asset to students’ learning.
Outfitting a school or classroom with the correct technological resource can further the reach of teachers, enhance the skills of students, and create endless opportunities of education methods. Using web-connected devices, electronic whiteboards, tablets, VR systems and STEM Labs are a much better use of resources than new textbooks due to their engagement abilities and high levels of usability. Children in schools today are far better equipped with knowledge of technological and internet-equipped devices than ever before. Why inhibit these skills when it can be used in conjunction with educational technology to help students prepare themselves for the future?
