Salnave Elementary School receives technology grant

Cheney Middle School isn’t the only district school to receive a hefty technology grant.

Last Thursday, May 30, Salnave Elementary School teachers Celina Brennan and Ann Ottmar were awarded a $5,000 grant from CenturyLink’s Teachers and Technology program, in partnership with Washington’s Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction. Brennan and Ottmar intend to purchase laptops, iPads, Flip video cameras, a document camera and LCD projector for their third, fourth and fifth grade students to implement self-directed learning through a variety of technologies. Students in this multi-level classroom will develop multimedia presentations to share their understanding of different learning styles.

A total of $110,000 in grants will be awarded to 22 teachers this year as part of the 2013 CenturyLink/OSPI Teachers and Technology program.
