I&#39;d say don&#39;t wait for the big class-set grant. Instead keep going with Donor&#39;s Choose or other small grants and start amassing a small center set - once you have 3-6 iPads, you can run them in small groups. Keep building over time, like one might do with their classroom libraries. Hopefully along the way a bigger grant will become available.Jennie Magierahttps://www.blogger.com/profile/10467628532951539043noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-100493291113167056.post-81241009013215660542013-04-04T12:03:28.655-07:002013-04-04T12:03:28.655-07:00Hello!!

It is a wonderful environment to teach in but does have its disadvantages when it comes to funding. ALL of our funding comes from donations and churches (little to no money). Almost everything in my classroom, I have purchased myself. Over Christmas break, I bought an I Pad. I love it and use it so much! I would love to have one or more for my classroom. I know the only way to achieve this is through a grant. I am at a bit of a disadvantage because we do not have an IT/technology teacher, grant writer, or even a full-time principal on staff. Since Christmas, I have searched online for tips and tricks to grant writing &amp; grant availability but we usually do not qualify b/c of our overall student population, low free/reduced lunch ratio, etc. I am getting a bit discouraged and more so....overwhelmed. Any help or insight you could provide would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much!!Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-100493291113167056.post-90757265466496056552013-03-10T19:57:02.245-07:002013-03-10T19:57:02.245-07:00Check out this blog for some ideas! http://literac...Check out this blog for some ideas! http://literacyspark.wordpress.com/Jennie Magierahttps://www.blogger.com/profile/10467628532951539043noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-100493291113167056.post-24071766814891777262013-03-10T19:36:35.244-07:002013-03-10T19:36:35.244-07:00How could you use iPads in an English classrooms a...How could you use iPads in an English classrooms and writing class?Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-100493291113167056.post-16048961254974612742012-12-09T10:18:40.898-08:002012-12-09T10:18:40.898-08:00Sorry, I personally have not!

I just walked on to an aging network (no maintenance for 4-5 years)not much documentation on the current infrastructure yet was just asked to find-out everything within a couple of days to apply for a grant. I&#39;m looking at how to find the readiness of our building&#39;s infrastructure and any areas that will need improvement prior to a successful implementation. And the costs we may incur without knowing what is needed.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-100493291113167056.post-67349019509659397172012-07-09T22:59:07.313-07:002012-07-09T22:59:07.313-07:00Flipped classrooms is the great modern technology ...Flipped classrooms is the great modern technology and students have traditionally done in class and at home to learn.This technology shows the signs of success.Cerys Bennetthttp://www.diskdoctors.com/data-recovery-princeton.aspnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-100493291113167056.post-68835256152100434932012-06-05T13:02:32.977-07:002012-06-05T13:02:32.977-07:00Sadly it was only for last year and was for CPS on...Sadly it was only for last year and was for CPS only. :(Jennie Magierahttps://www.blogger.com/profile/10467628532951539043noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-100493291113167056.post-45084767733707419912012-06-05T12:47:03.103-07:002012-06-05T12:47:03.103-07:00Hi Jennie, I&#39;m reading your blog.........than...Hi Jennie,<br /><br />I&#39;m reading your blog.........thanks for sharing the information it&#39;s great.
