Hello, I am new to the site and I really like all the great advice people have. I am in my third year of teaching and in a book adoption year. Every time I go to a meeting and preview a book, I realize that many of the materials I wouldn't be able to use because of a lack of technology. Our building was built in the 70s and has been barely updated since. We still have the original furniture! A new building was constructed in our corporation last year and has all new furniture/equipment. Many students in our building are discouraged because they feel our building/they don't matter. A few of my coworkers and I are interested in getting Smart Boards for our classrooms. We thought this would be a great way to get students more involved in learning. If anyone has written a grant for these or knows where I can get information about grants for these, please let me know.
