ANNOUNCING 2013 ICE-CAP Mini-Grants!
WE HAVE A WINNER!
The winner of the 2012 ICE-CAP mini-grant is Shereen Hussain - Technology Coordinator at Mozart Elementary School. Her project is entitled "Ancient Egypt". She will receive a $500 mini-grant to purchase a projector and extra bulb to assist in her teaching of this unit. Congratulations, Shereen!
Project Description: Students will be using the existing applications on their iPads such as, Keynote, Pages, and Simplenote to depict and present their understanding of Ancient Egypt. In order to present student understanding of what they have learned about the unit we need a projector. During the unit, students will mummify a chicken and use the iPad to take pictures and create a Keynote presentation depicting the process of mummification. The usage of Keynote will facilitate in the creation of the students' presentations and the projector will allow the students to present their projects. Students will also use their iPads to create messages typed in hieroglyphics. Students will then project their messages onto the SMART board and others will try to decipher the messages.
Mini-grant proposals will be evaluated based on the following criteria:
