Manchester Center, VT - December 15th, 2010 - Digital Wish has unveiled their highly anticipated 2011 grants calendar, featuring over fifty technology grants for K-12 classrooms. By simply uploading a technology-based lesson plan to Digital Wish's lesson plan library, teachers become eligible to win a myriad of educational software programs for their classrooms.
Lesson plan submissions must demonstrate creativity, student involvement, and describe how the software would be utilized to complete the project. 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 $30,000 worth of software and licensing 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. We're thrilled to be awarding some exciting new software, including student-friendly video editing software that's perfect for teachers who have taken advantage of our 2-for-1 deal on Flip video cameras," said Heather Chirtea, Digital Wish's executive director and founder.
