Page history last edited by MARICELA 2 days, 19 hours ago

Welcome to the Donna RIGHT Connections Grant

(Funded by Connections Grant) .

 

Donna ISD is the proud recipient of the 2010-2012 Connections Grant in the amount of $850,000 awarded by the Texas Education Agency. This grant will provide technology staff development and introduce a 1:1  laptop initiative for Eight Grade students at AP Solis and Veterans Middle Schools.  This will allow Donnna ISD to infuse technology into the curriculum.

 

Connections Grant purpose

 

To establish technology demonstration sites that serve as statewide technology demonstration sites – models for the exemplary use of digital content, interactive media, and educational technology for increased student learning. This grant project is focused on building connections among schools, teachers, and students wherein model classrooms and schools can demonstrate the following:

  • Student access to digital content and resources anytime, anywhere
  • Students access to personal technology tools and school-provided interactive media tools at school, at home, and in the community; and
  • Transformative practices in teaching with technology that uses digital content in the classroom and in assignments and activities for students beyond the classroom

 

Professional Learning Communites (PLC)

  • PLCs will be created under the DonnaRIGHT website and the Donna ISD Project Share Center. THis serve as a collaborative website in cooperation with the DISD MTT Teachers.  To access Project Share, go to http://www.projectsharetexas.org/.

I've set up a mini lab we can use for teacher

training sessions. A schedule is included.

The purpose is to show teachers how to create a wiki

then use the wiki as an organizational tool for 

the classroom technology integration lessons/tools.

 

I've also created a wiki for our students and teachers

that can be used to learn library skills, recommend

books and learn to use some of the Web 2.0 tools. I

use this wiki for some of my library lessons and

have students log into it when they need a refresher.

 

The last link is our library webpage. This has all of

the links to our databases and other online resources.

I also use this for some of my lessons.
