EACH WEEK FUNDS WILL BE AWARDED FOR CLASSROOM TECHNOLOGY
Peachtree Corners, GA. – September 12, 2017 – Classworks announces the Digital Learning Fund with DonorsChoose.org. The leader in online intervention is making it easier for teachers to receive funding for classroom technology.
In an effort to support more teachers, Classworks chose to work with DonorsChoose.org, a crowdfunding organization that helps teachers bring resources into their classrooms. Classworks will select technology-related projects to fund each week directly from the Classworks Giving Page on DonorsChoose.org.
“Classworks is passionate about helping teachers use technology to make learning come alive for students. Funding projects through DonorsChoose.org gives us the opportunity to help more teachers using a medium they are already familiar with,” explains Debra Synatschk, vice president, customer success team, Classworks. “We’re excited to see the innovative ways teachers use the funds to maximize their use of Classworks with additional technology in the classroom.”
Teachers can add projects for consideration to DonorsChoose.org from September 25 - November 17, 2017. Classworks will announce the projects selected for funding every Friday via Facebook and Twitter.
“Last year, we purchased Chromebooks for our schools using the Classworks Digital Learning Fund. Our students use the Classworks program on their Chromebooks,” says Hector Baeza, principal, Donehoo Elementary School. “We had the highest reading scores we’ve had in four years and our math scores were significantly higher than the year before. Classworks played an important part. Students and teachers are motivated and the added technology was a tremendous help!”
