A partnership between the International Reading Association and Don Johnston Incorporated supports a competition intended to foster the creative use of computer technologies in classrooms to "connect" students with literacy learning. They seek projects that use the unique capabilities of computer hardware/software applications to enhance the literacy curriculum, extend the communication capabilities of students, provide interventions, or offer students opportunities to assemble and express knowledge in authentic contexts. The winner of the competition will receive up to a $400 grant award as well as Don Johnston literacy software appropriate to the project objectives.
Applicants must be members of the International Reading Association and its Technology In Literacy Special Interest Group, and proposals may be submitted by individual educators, a team of collaborating teachers, or a computer lab teacher. Both public and private K-12 schools are eligible. Applications are due February 9, 2004, and the award will be made by May 2004. For more information and an application, visit the IRA SIG or DJI websites: www.wm.edu/education/tilesig or www.donjohnston.com/about/grantfrm.htm.
