    I posted about my grant I wrote the other day for an Activboard. No one suggested changes. Well, it was good enough to win :D :D :D :D
    I will be getting an Activboard installed with in the next few months. I AM SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO EXCITED!!!
    :celebrate:


    The way funding works down here, my school struggles with technology big-time. The entire county is one giant school district and funding is spread equally (so there is no option to pass a bond for something the school needs/wants). My school is one of only a couple schools that are not Title-1. That means we get no extra funding and lag behind the other schools technology wise. The entire school shares 1 projector. Well, 2, but the 1 is permanently set up in the computer lab. So, I am very excited that I will be able to do things like Power Point (Keynote since we have Macs) and display things for the class. Plus all the Activboard stuff. Honestly, I would have been excited with just a projector! But, an Activboard really puts me over the edge!!!!

    So awesome!....What's an ActivBoard? :lol:

    Edit: sounds like it's a brand name of a smart board. I want one of those things! My district told us to stop applying for grants for those, that they won't be giving any more out :( You're lucky!

    That is fantastic! I applied for a Smartboard last year, but didn't get one at my school. I'm hoping I'll get one this year! Have fun!

    That is AMAZING! I'm so jealous. I have a mimio system that converts my whiteboard into a sort of interactive board, but I'd love a "real" smartboard or activeboard. Congratulations!
