As a Manitoba K-12 educator, could you use an extra $900.00? Is there an initiative, supported by technology, that you would like to explore or enhance? If so, you would be wise to investigate the Manitoba Association for Computing Educators (ManACE) “Seed Grant”.
The available grant categories for 2014 include:
- Two $900 grants awarded to K-4 teachers
- Two $900 grants awarded to grades 5-8 teachers
- Two $900 grants awarded to grades 9-12 teachers
- Two $900 grants awarded to school-based projects that administrators, resource, and/or teachers might apply.
If you could use funding to purchase hardware, software and/or professional development, I encourage you to explore the ManACE Seed Grant brochure and application form. The application deadline is February 21, 2014, so it gives you ample time to decide on a project and involve students in your “digital pitch” presentation which comprises 30% of your grant evaluation.
To better appreciate the creativity and innovative ideas that have been submitted by students and educators in past, investigate past Seed Grant winning proposals. These eight projects can be found by scrolling down to the 2013-dated Seed Grant video submissions.
So “plant a seed and watch it grow!”
Take care & keep smiling 🙂
