The CenturyLink Clarke M. Williams Foundation partnered with the Organization for Educational Technology and Curriculum (OETC) to award $100,000 in grants to Washington K-12 educators who demonstrate a transformative use of mobile technology with students and teachers.
On May 22, 2014 at the school board meeting, CenturyLink awarded Whitson Elementary $5,000 to buy a 10-pack bundle of iPads, plus covers, for use in its eSpark pilot program for all second graders. Fourth grade teachers and students will also use this program. All teachers will receive training and suport through eSpark. The main goal of this project is to use digital technology to provide individualized learning for every second grader at Whitson Elementary.
The grant writing was made possible by our community through their donations to the White Salmon Valley Education Foundation.
