CenturyLink, Inc. is connecting teachers with technology for the classroom. The CenturyLink Clarke M. Williams Foundation’s Teachers and Technology grant program, administered by Foundation Source, today opened the application process for teachers in CenturyLink’s local service areas who want to innovatively implement technology in their classrooms to increase student achievement.
“As school budgets tighten, more and more teachers are looking for alternative ways to enhance the learning experience for their students, and the CenturyLink Teachers and Technology program is available to these innovative teachers,” said Kelly Blay, CenturyLink vice president and general manager for Ohio. “CenturyLink’s vision is to improve people’s lives by delivering advanced technologies, and we are proud to give support directly to teachers doing the same thing for their students.”
CenturyLink service is neither required nor considered in the review of applications.
The Foundation will award more than $1.4 million in grants to support technology in the classroom through the 2013-2014 Teachers and Technology program.
