The Classroom of Tomorrow is Here Today

February 15, 2017

K-12 StudentsYour success is our mission at Turning Technologies. We value an education and take the appropriate steps to make sure students and teachers flourish in the classroom. Today’s educators face an uphill battle ranging from strict standardized testing guidelines to limited funding and school resources. With that said, we want to help. 
Back in 2015, Turning Technologies and Turning Foundation teamed up to award educational technology to teachers as part of the Classroom Improvement Technology Grant. The response was incredible as hundreds of educators from across the United States applied and shared their stories of how they could effectively incorporate student response systems and assessment technology in the classroom. We’re proud to announce the Classroom Improvement Technology Grant is back!
We’re asking teachers to tell us how they would utilize interactive polling and student clicker technology in the classroom to promote effective instruction and improve learning outcomes. Our panel of distinguished educators and student response technology experts will review and select the ten best submissions. Each winning recipient will receive an edtech package valued at $3,300 that includes:
TurningPoint Classroom Polling Software
Classroom polling software to create and deliver interactive lessons and collect real-time data through student response clickers and/or a student clicker app.
Handheld presentation clicker that enables facilitation of TurningPoint presentations without being tied to a computer.
Classroom clicker system featuring multiple ways for students to engage and interact.
Complete student testing solution to create, launch and review classroom assessments.
Mobile solution that allows students to respond to ExamView test questions with a computer, tablet or smartphone.
“Turning Technologies’ support of the Classroom Improvement Technology Grant signals a commitment of excellence to providing schools the resources in improving the overall educational experience,” stated John Wilson, director of the Turning Foundation. “The ability to incorporate educational technology as both an instructional tool and engagement tactic is unparalleled for every classroom in the drive for student success.”
In all, more than $33,000 in edtech will be awarded. K-12 educators teaching in an accredited, non-profit school in the U.S. are encouraged to apply. Click here to learn more. All applications must be completed and submitted by Friday, March 24, 2017.
