>From: Grace Kelly > >Technology: computers, digital cameras, >software, laptops, etc Again, Grace -- to do what? You aren't going to find anyone to just give you product without explaining what you intend to do with it. Too much technology just sit in classroom's unused as is. The goal isn't just to acquire it -- the goal is to integrate it into the curriculum. Establish a need and a vision for this technology and the grants will follow. I've only written 5 grants -- but, I got 4 of them funded. My first grant I had your approach -- "I need computers to stay competitive with other schools because...yada yada..."; but, I never established how I actually planned to use them. It got rejected. My next few grants went more along the lines of "I am requesting digital camera's because our 5th graders are going to create digital storybooks using existing books in our media center to broadcast on the projection TV's in our Kindergarten classroom..." Be specific...very very specific. --- Edtech Archives, posting guidelines and other information are at: http://www.h-net.msu.edu/~edweb Please include your name, email address, and school or professional affiliation in each posting.
