The Beacon makes Technology Teacher Grants that fund classroom technology supplies and equipment. Teachers should submit a tech-focused lesson plan that demonstrates creativity by combining lecture, activities, multimedia, and out-of-class projects. Plans should also communicate why technology is important and how to use it in a particular subject; specify benchmarks for measuring students’ comprehension of major concepts; and contain a detailed description of lessons, handouts, homework assignments, and required resources.
Applications must be submitted using the online system.
Eligibility: Public, Charter, Private. Eligible applicants are full-time teachers of kindergarten through grade 12 in the United States. Preference is given to plans designed for students in kindergarten through grade 8.
Award: Two grants of $1,000 each and four grants of $500 each are awarded.
Deadline: December 9, 2017
