Come and Get IT

June was a great month to be a geek.
First, there was the Infocomm11 tradeshow
held in Orlando. The show hosted more
than 1,000 manufacturers who sported
cutting-edge display and AV technologies.
For schools, there were large-scale IWBs
with pressure-sensitive touchscreens; short
throw projectors with astounding image quality; simulated
scenarios where student handhelds and smartphones sync to
classroom management systems, then splash their projects
on brilliant LED flat-panel displays. And then there is ISTE in
Philly, where the technology may be a bit more mundane, but
the applications are exciting all the same.
One discussion that often gets lost amongst the shiny boxes
and pretty pixels at these exhibitions is how educational
institutions can pay for all this stuff. That’s why we dedicate
every July issue to all things money. Our very own grant guru
Gary Carnow provides strategies for putting together the
perfect grant proposal. Contributor James Careless looks at
big-picture strategies on how schools and districts can fund
their future. And Sascha Zuger discovers how schools can
save money by using alternative energies and develop STEM
curricula at the same time.
Also, be sure to read our excerpt from the independent
think tank Education Sector’s Portrait of School Improvement
Grantees. The report states that 843 schools from 49 states and
the District of Columbia have been selected as SIG grantees,
and the combined grants are expected to fund the teaching of
594,117 students. I expect you find what they got and how they
used it to be quite interesting.
