Request for Videos - Get Those Digital Video Cameras Rolling!

The Nellie Mae Education Foundation has just announced a Request for Videos (RFV) that invites schools and organizations to help young people (ages 13-19) to creatively share their insights on how they learn. The Video Challenge is open to public middle and high schools and other education organizations in New England. Organizations submitting the top videos will receive a grant award of up to $5000. The deadline for submitting videos is 5:00 p.m. on May 14, 2010.

For more information and to download the RFV and other materials, please visit the Nellie Mae Education Foundation’s website at

Personally, I'm looking forward to seeing what the students create - and I would LOVE to see some of Connecticut's students participate!  If your students decide to participate, please send me a link to their video (win or lose)!

Still Waiting... 21st Century Learning Environments Grant Winners


I don't have the results to share just yet for the 21st Century Learning Environments grant program... but one of the reasons this is taking so long is that it appears there MAY be additional funds to support MORE proposals.  So, in this case, no news (yet) may be good news!  Keep checking this blog in the next week or so for an update on this grant program.
