Your Wish Is Granted: Finding Cash for Technology
Brooks-Young, Susan
School Library Journal, v53 n7 p36-39 Jul 2007
Media specialists are working hard to get schools up to speed in the 21st century--teaching information literacy skills to students, helping teachers use technology, and harnessing Web-based tools such as blogs and wikis to enhance learning. However, the same educators report that limited funds hamper their ability to make good on these plans. An alternative strategy is to seek out and apply for grants. Although funding agencies have also experienced belt tightening, opportunities still wait for educators with initiative to acquire awards ranging from a few hundred to tens of thousands of dollars. This article offers several tips on how to successfully apply for grants. A list of online resources that can help educators in their grant applications is also presented. (Contains 14 online resources.)
