From turning Foundation:
"The Turning Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, in partnership with NBC Learn and Turning Technologies today announced the Spring 2011 Classroom Improvement Technology Grant. The goal of this joint effort is to help educators develop 21st Century classrooms and improve achievement by providing effective, engaging technology and professional development tools from multiple industry leading companies.
Turning Foundation Director, John Wilson stated, “With our third CIT grant, we’ve partnered with the educational division of one of the world’s leading news organizations. NBC Learn’s rich library of historic film and video archives combined with Turning Technologies’ student response system is an ideal solution for teachers to engage students in the learning process. We believe this grant award will positively impact learning outcomes and increase the overall success of students and teachers in the classroom. The Turning Foundation appreciates the contributions and involvement of both NBC Learn and Turning Technologies in our upcoming Classroom Improvement Technology Grant.”
Grant applications will be accepted from teachers in grades 3 – 12 who are currently teaching in an accredited, non-profit, public school building in the United States. Ten (10) classroom awards estimated at $3,500 each will be distributed. Each will include student response technology and subscriber access to NBC LEARN K-12. "
Talk about a great grant! Tony is giving time aboard his boat to a "subgenius" in return for dinner with his family as a grant. I LOVE this idea. What if more of us did this! Wow! Thinking I could talk to Dad about our lodge at the shed and offer a week of quiet time away to a subgenius of my own.
I love this!

"Jessica Rauch is the August winner of ideablob.com’s monthly contest for The Generation Project. The Generation Project allows potential donors and philanthropists to give back to students based on their own interests. For example, a writer might sponsor a poetry contest or a cancer survivor could sponsor hospital internships. Jessica will be awarded $10,000 to help launch the first phase of the program, which will start next year in New York City and Chicago."
