We’re once again spotlighting our annual grant winners and today we’re featuring Chadron Elementary School who won $5,000 for a brand new iPad lab!
The grant will allow the school to purchase six iPads, a Mac Book Pro, and various learning applications. Multiple studies have shown that using tablets in the classroom significantly benefits students’ academic achievement. The iPads will allow students to interact with material and individual apps can help students target unique learning needs.
The grant was awarded as part of our “Commitment to Our Schools” program. The program has provided hundreds of thousands of dollars to schools for a wide range of projects including aquaponics labs, student-run businesses, and theater renovations. We are very proud to add Chadron Elementary to the list!
