The Top 13 Grants Every Teacher Wants — and How to Get Them

The Top 13 Grants Every Teacher Wants — and How to Get Them | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

With states and local districts cutting back funding, many teachers must do more with less. Sometimes, a special project may need a little extra money to get started, and that’s where grants can be a lifesaver. There are hundreds of programs out there that offer teachers the chance to win funds for their classrooms, tech development, or for pioneering educational programs. Despite the wealth of options for this kind of funding, many teachers don’t know where to look for the best grants and how to successfully apply.

Making it Real with iFakeText | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

Yeah, we all know how much students like to text, right? So, why not take advantage of a “cool tool” like iFakeText, a nifty online generator that looks like the real thing. It’s super simple to use as well as a visually engaging way to allow students to demonstrate what they know in a unique way. Plus, there’s nothing quite like the novelty effect to grab our students’ interest and attention, right?

The Best 10 Tools to Create Posters for your Classroom | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

Posters are great educational tools to use with your students. Their importance stems from the fact that they present information, facts, and data not only in a visually attractive way but also using a multi-modal system that combines signs, images, charts..........and texts. They are probably like infographics except that they are smaller and neater.
