    1-1 Planning Grants available in US - Proposal Due Jan 28

      Educational Collaborators and DyKnow Team Up to Offer Schools

      One-to-One Readiness Grants


      Educational Collaborators, a consulting organization with expertise in assisting schools with successful one-to-one programs, and DyKnow, a leader in interactive education offering Collaboration and Classroom Management software, will smooth the process of four U.S. schools in planning and assessing their 2011-12 one-to-one implementations. The One-to-One Readiness Grants will help schools “jump start” their One-to-One initiative with a suite of services designed to guide them as they move from thinking about a One-to-One program to executing a One-to-One program.  Each grant award, valued at more than $6000, will include:

      • Custom One-to-One Plan and Timeline developed using an extensive one-to-one planning tool
      • Survey tool to assess teacher skills and attitudes toward one-to-one learning
      • Set of 25 DyKnow licenses and access to a collaboration server
      • One day of onsite coaching to address needs for teacher preparation,
      • A Learning Walk Rubric to assist administrators in record classroom observations
      • 3 one-hour conference calls to provide mentoring to the school during the planning and implementation process

      The grant deadline is January 28, 2011.  For more information about the One-to-One Readiness Grants go to http://bit.ly/one2onegrant
