The Tool Factory, in partnership with Olympus America, Inc., is offering a Podcasting Grant. First, let me say the one page, on-line application looks very easy. The grant winners will receive $3,ooo in the hardware, software, and server access needed for podcasting. I am ready to apply, but since I don’t have any students of my own, and don’t think it wise to start dictating what one of you is going to do with your students, I’m looking for a teacher who is willing to try something new. I’ll write the grant, with your input. I already have some teachers in mind. You know who you are! Let’s do this!
Grants will be judged based on:
- Effective integration of podcasting in the curriculum.
- Effective use of ALL the resources provided by the grant.
- High degree of student involvement. We are looking for projects which involve the entire class in a variety of capacities for a group project, or where each student gets the opportunity to build their own project.
- Creativity and fun. Our judges are looking for great projects that they would like to take part in!
