Technology Resources and Grants

by Alan Haskvitz

http://www.reacheverychild.com

With the reduction in available technology funding this might be a good time to take a look at what is out there for free of for very little cost. For example, I found a little company that provides open source computers and servers that are used by many larger institutions and has US based customer service. The company was http://www.eracks.com, and I am sure there as others out there as well. The savings in software cost alone was significant and there wasn’t even any licensing costs.

Here is a list of resources that might be of value to educators and others:

Finding Resources, Grants, Lessons

from the Federal Government

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Haskvitz

http://www.reacheverychild.com/feature/govt_resources.html

Probably the most underused source of free resources on the Internet belongs to the federal government. Each branch, limb, twig has information and materials that could be used to create valuable lessons or to make individualization easier.

For example, you are working on an aviation unit. A quick check at the Federal Aviation Administration site reveals:

Teachers Guide to Aviation, Grades 2-6

Aviation Education Curriculum Guides

Aviation Education Materials and Curriculum Publications

Black Wings: African American Pioneer Aviators

Remember the Wright Brothers’ Historic Flight
A fairly complete guide to early aviation, the Wright Brothers and Space

War Eagles Air Museum Coloring Book
Some printable coloring pages of World War two fighter planes

Check out other resources in the following categories:

Federal Grants

General Sites

Lesson plans about government

Special Interest Sites

The best drawing site, plus a link that makes graphs, and 1000s of grants

I have all these posted here. The grant site is for all types and includes how to write them as well as where to apply.

http://www.reacheverychild.com

also use the search engine to find specific free materials and lessons.

I have compiled a list of several hundred that are directed to educators and college students. The list is extensive and covers a variety of needs. I believe it is the largest online list anywhere. I have it posted here…no ads, no cookies.

Horace Mann Unit of Study:

The History of Public Education

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_Haskvitz

Lesson posted here

http://www.reacheverychild.com/feature/horace.html

This is an encompassing and multilevel unit of study that not only deals with the life of Horace Mann and his contributions to public education by links it with the major early acts that influenced education such as the Morrill Act and the Northwest Ordinance. Includes maps of Native American lands, a table about the rewards of staying in school, and scholarships given by the Horace Mann Companies. For lower level students there is even a word wall.

Easily one of the best units of study on Horace Mann anywhere.
