Burgaw Middle Technology Grant

Craig Lawson, 7th grade teacher at Burgaw Middle School, received one of three prestigious grants from the North Carolina Technology in Education Society (NCTIES).  The grants are awarded every year for innovative, student-involved projects that effectively use technology integration in the classroom. This grant provides $3000 for new technology.

Burgaw Middle School will use the funds to purchase additional Chromebooks to bring one classroom to a one-to-one ratio for the 2014 - 2015 school year. This class will provide a technology-rich environment for 6th grade social studies that focuses on product-based learning and 21st Century skills using 3D Gamelab, an innovative classroom management tool. 

The grant will be awarded March 7, 2014 at the NCTIES Conference.  In addition, Burgaw Middle School will present this project at the 2015 NCTIES Conference, scheduled to be held in the Raleigh Convention Center.
