WeAreTeachers, the online social and business network that brings together teachers, learners and content in the education industry, announces a new microgrant, "Special Education: Individual Attention, Collective Impact," sponsored by PCI Education, provider of resources for students with special needs.
WeAreTeachers is calling upon special education teachers to submit their best practices for reaching students on an individual level, and will reward the 10 submissions that receive the most online votes with a $200 cash microgrant, and a Flip Video camera to capture implementation of the idea. All of the submissions will be published online and shared with special education educators.
The microgrant application can be found at www.weareteachers.com from Oct. 12 to Oct. 31. Voting will begin Nov. 3, when the submitted projects will be posted online for public review. The 10 teachers whose projects receive the most votes will be announced Nov. 19.
