Promethean Grant - Win an Interactive Whiteboard for Your Classroom

If you have desired to get an interactive whiteboard for your classroom, but budget has kept that wish from becoming reality then you should check out Promethean's "grant" program. Promethean calls it a grant program even though it seems more like a contest. To be eligible to be awarded a Promethean ActivPanel interactive whiteboard you must create a video that demonstrates your need for an interactive whiteboard and the impact that it would have on teaching and learning in your classroom. Entries will be judged based on creativity, need, and potential classroom impact.

Applications for Promethean's grant program will be accepted August 1st through November 1st. Teachers are encouraged to include students in the creation and production of their grant application videos. The complete program details can be found here

Interactive Whiteboards 101

Danny Nicholson is an interactive whiteboard expert who I've had the pleasure of seeing in action a few years ago. Since then his blog, The Whiteboard Blog, has been one of my go-to places for information about interactive whiteboards.

Today, Danny published a new post that every teacher new to using interactive whiteboards should bookmark. Interactive Whiteboard #101: A Short Primer offers information that can be used by teachers who have Promethean, SMART, Mimio, and Easiteach interactive whiteboards. A few highlights from the post; Danny recommends having a Dropbox account and a large USB stick, he refers readers to some free resources for all boards, and explains the basics of using IWBs.

If you're new to using IWBs, check out Danny Nicholson's Interactive Whiteboard #101.
