Hp (hewlett Packard)
The information technology Company’s Technology for Teaching grants are designed to support the innovative use of mobile technology in K-16 education. They’re also aimed at identifying K-12 public schools and two- and four-year colleges and universities that HP might support with future grants. The Company will award grants to K-12 schools that are using a collaborative, team-based approach to implementing technology integration projects. Project activities must be focused on using technology to teach, rather than on teaching students to use technology. Preference will be given to projects that address mathematics and/or science as well as schools that serve a high proportion of low-income students, relative to their district or state’s free and reduced-price lunch percentages. Grants to postsecondary schools are aimed at projects that include a course redesign for one or more undergraduate courses. The courses must be focused on one of the following disciplines: mathematics; science (physical, environmental, computer); engineering (electrical, computer, mechanical, environmental, materials); and information systems/information technology. Request for proposal information is available on the Web site. The online application process begins Jan. 8, 2008.
