On April 15, 2011, a kindergarten teacher from Florida posted a project on Donor's Choose. She requested $2,700 to purchase a Mimiovote class set, which is the student response system (clickers) made by Mimio. By August 19th, her project had been fully funded by 91 donors!
Richard Byrne, author of the Free Technology for Teachers blog, recently shared 7 sites where teachers can get free supplies or funding for classroom projects. Click here to read the article. Below are the 7 sites he recommends. If there are tech projects you would love to do with your students but you don't have the equipment you need, consider posting a project to Donor's Choose or check out one of the sites below. I'd love to help you write up a proposal.
