The Connection is inviting applications for its Social Media in the Classroom Grant
Through the program, two $1,000 grants will be awarded to classroom teachers to upgrade the social media technology used in their classrooms. To be considered, teachers must write an essay (up to a thousand words) or create a short video (two to three minutes) that address the question: "How are you using social media to enhance the learning experiences of your students?" (Applicants should be sure to include the ways in which social media is used to enhance the learning experience of their classroom.)
Two winners will each receive a prize of $1,000 to use in their classrooms.
To be eligible, applicants must be actively employed full-time as a professor at an accredited two- or four-year college or university or accredited graduate school, or as a K-12 grade teacher at an elementary, middle, or high school in the United States. Participating schools must appear in the National Center for Education Statistics Database.
