DYMO/Mimio Names "Bridging the Gap" Technology Grant Winners

DYMO/Mimio has awarded two teachers in Texas and Mississippi interactive teaching technology and reading software for their classrooms through the Bridging the Gap Grant — the third grant in their series. The Bridging the Gap grant is the first of DYMO/Mimio’s grants to combine elements of the MimioClassroom product suite with Headsprout’s adaptive Reading Comprehension product.

Marcie Lindsey, technology facilitator for Mitchell Elementary of Georgetown ISD in Georgetown, Texas, and first grade teacher Angela Victory of New Albany Elementary in the New Albany School District in New Albany, Miss., each won five MimioTeach interactive systems, five MimioPad wireless tablets, five MimioView document cameras for their schools, and five licenses to set up classrooms in their district with Headsprout Reading Comprehension software.

Bridging the Gap grant applicants had to demonstrate how they will blend individual student instruction through Headsprout software with group-focused lessons taught using DYMO/Mimio hardware, creating a complete classroom solution— effectively "bridging the gap" across multiple levels of learning.
