Let’s continue the work of “The Power of Us”!
What is it?
New Tech Network is offering mini-grants to stimulate more cross-school interaction and collaborative learning/work within the network.
Our hope is to curate, refine and share compelling examples of cross-school collaboration to increase the level of connection between members in the Network. This could be work between schools or between individuals from differing schools.
To receive “The Power of Us” mini-grant, you first must go through a brief online application process. You can apply as an individual and ask to be paired with another member of the network (outside of your own school) or you can apply to participate with another member of the network (outside of your own school) if you have one in mind or are currently working with someone on a project.
The expectation is that two or more people/schools within the network work together to collaborate and learn around a specific idea/topic. It is also expected that this work is shared with others in the Network in some way, shape or form. Ideas for work might be but are not limited to:
-a classroom project
-a whole school project
-work around a specific learning outcome
-and so much more.
How Might the Money Be Used?
Mini-grants will be awarded in the amount of $2000 and can go up to $3,000 if more than two schools are involved, or individuals from more than two schools work together. Monies for this project could possibly be used, but is not limited to:
-travel to an event/conference
-fees for attending
-travel for visiting your teammate
-materials needed for the project
Applications will open in August!
