I wanted to take this grant writing course early on in my EdTech journey so that I could explore the grant writing process and find possible funding sources. I know there are grants available and I wanted to arm myself with as much knowledge as possible to explore funding possibilities. Technology takes money, and without funding teachers are very limited in what they can incorporate. I’m not entirely sure how I will use the skills I’ve gained in this course since I’m not a teacher, but I have a feeling there won’t be a shortage of opportunities to seek needed funding.
For this course I chose one idea for a possible grant and refined various parts of it throughout the semester. I chose to help my mom, who teaches Special Ed students in Nevada. I have a lot of other ideas to help my children’s teachers and also the NGOs I am involved with overseas.
