Area schools to benefit from tech grant

Greater Fort Wayne Business Weekly

Four northeast Indiana school districts are among 21 throughout the state receiving a combined $1.5 million to support a technology plan where each of the students work with their own mobile computers.

The Indiana Department of Education awarded each of the districts $75,000 to implement or expand their 1:1 technology plans through the competitive grant application process, which required it to review and compare 84 applications.

The winning districts from northeast Indiana receiving a combined $300,000 include DeKalb County Central United Schools, West Noble School Corp., Whitko Community Schools and Whitley County Consolidated Schools.

“I am excited to announce the recipients of the 2016 Digital Learning Grant,” Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction Glenda Ritz said in a statement.

“In today’s fast-paced, technology-driven society, grants like this are more important than ever. Importantly, this grant provides schools with the resources they need to expand student access to technology in the classroom.”

In addition to buying laptops, tablets or other mobile devices, the grant funds may be used to develop digital learning course content and expectations, create avenues for parent and student communication and provide for professional development.

The grants are funded by the David C. Ford Technology Fund.
