Maximum Grant Amount
Internet.Frontier.com is accepting grant applications for classroom technology. The application asks for a unique lesson plan on how you (as a teacher) would use technology to teach social responsibility.
Social responsibility is an ethical framework and suggests that an individual has an obligation to act for the benefit of society at large. Studies suggest that education through technology can improve knowledge retention, concentration and understanding.
Grant recipients will be chosen based on the following criteria:
Is your educational plan original, creative and fun for students? Does it combine technology with carefully designed lessons to engage students and promote social responsibility (defined above)?
Can your plan be reasonably carried out in the classroom? Could the lesson plan and technological experiences be implemented within the upcoming semester?
Will technology be used for age-appropriate activities? Is your plan to use it in a classroom tailored to fit the needs of K-12 students?
Can you measure the success of learning in your classroom? Will there be corresponding tests, assignments or other measures of student knowledge and participation?
Does your lesson plan fit within the word count limit (500-word max. in English) and is your application fully completed?
