Dozier Strives for More Technology, Two Teachers Win Chrome Books!
 

In an effort to strive for more technology resources again this year, Dozier Elementary educators have each applied for technology tools using the DonorsChoose.org Organization and Chevron "Fuel Your School" campaign to possibly earn mini grants. The goal is for each teacher to attain additional resources to seamlessly mesh the curriculum and technology. The intent of using the tools would be to assist with whole classroom teaching, as well as helping students in groups or for individualized teaching.

At this time, their proposals are on the school's  "Eye on Tech" website to promote their needs for the Chevron's Fuel Your School campaign, as well as for the local businesses, community members, parents and grandparents who might be willing to help out.

The Dozier faculty for the second year in a row, had 100% teacher participation in this unique grant writing project in effort to try and gain more resources for their students.  In short, every teacher at the school has a proposal online asking for help in attaining technology items. The majority of resources and tools listed in the proposals lie with requests for classroom iPads, Promethean ActivSlates and computers.

Recently, Vermilion Parish School Superintendent Jerome Puyau stopped by at the elementary school  in Erath to commend the group for their impressive participation in the project and had a drawing for two Chrome Books as a reward.  He stated "the drawing was a technology incentive and reward due to the overwhelming support of the Donors Choose grant writing by teachers at the school."  In the drawing, two fifth grade teachers, Jill Viator and Jenny Domingues, each won a new chrome book.

Since the school wide grant project began in September, six teachers have gained iPads for their classroom using DonorsChoose, (an organization which matches donors with teacher's projects to bring needed items to the students).

The Donorschoose proposals will be online for a few more weeks. For more information about of each of the thirty four classroom projects, you can go to Dozier's website at http://www.vrml.k12.la.us/dozier/eye/2013_14/donorsorgDES.htm
