Utah Educator Wins Sliderocket Grant for Virtual School
A Utah teacher has received a classroom grant from the Association of American Educators to open her school up to Sliderocket.
A teacher at the Open High School of Utah has been awarded a grant to provide her entire school with subscriptions to a cutting-edge presentation website, writes the Association of American Educators.
Ms. Delaina Tonks can now outfit her classroom — and her entire school — with the online service known as Sliderocket. Sliderocket allows students and teachers alike to share information and presentations in real time, proving to be particularly useful among online school communities.
“Once students master concepts they are asked to use the Sliderocket service to present content from each of their courses,” said Ms. Tonks.
“This funding provides all of our students and teachers with a subscription to the website and allows for 100% participation. We couldn’t be happier!”
The Association of American Educators is very proud of Tonks, saying:
“We would like to congratulate Ms. Tonks on her commitment to providing a well-rounded online experience. Thinking of both students and her fellow teachers in securing the Sliderocket subscriptions will surely benefit the entire school.”
In response Ms. Tonk created a digital “Thank you” on her Glog, a digital note board.
AAEF teacher scholarships and classroom grants are competitive awards available to all educators.
Sliderocket has recently announced preferred pricing for the education sector, giving teachers and students grades K-12 unlimited access to the full range of SlideRocket’s software at a discount.
“With this new pricing, SlideRocket provides educators with a presentation toolset that frees them from the limits imposed by desktop software. Students can now access their presentations from anywhere the Internet is available – be it the school computer room, neighborhood library, or at home. Students are no longer required to own expensive presentation software, and can work collaboratively with other students and teachers while staying on the cutting edge of new communication tools.”
SlideRocket is integrated into Google Apps, saving students and teachers time with a single sign-on access, writes K. Walsh at Emerging Ed Tech.
With the online service, teachers are able to bring learning to life with interactive presentations. These presentations are embedded in online courses, where teachers can track statistics and assess how the lesson was received.
