Studies have shown that the use of tablets in classrooms may help students score better on math and literacy tests, with one group of students testing 20 percent higher after using an Algebra app than their peers who used a textbook. 1 To help make tablets more accessible for schools on a tight budget, 3M, the maker of 3M Screen Protectors, is partnering with Digital Wish, a non-profit organization that works to outfit classrooms with the latest technology.
Through the 3M Screens for Schools grants program, 3M Screen Protectors – with the help of parents, teachers and school administrators – will donate up to $25,000 2 to Digital Wish. The funds will then be awarded to one school so that it may equip its classrooms with new tablets and accompanying 3M Screen Protectors.
To reach its goal of donating up to $25,000 to Digital Wish, 3M Screen Protectors is encouraging parents to show their support for 3M Screens for Schools at Facebook.com/3MScreens. For every eligible person who shows his/her support, 3M will donate $1 to Digital Wish and an additional $1 for every person who shares the 3M Screens for Schools message on Facebook 3.
Parents, teachers and school administrators can also apply for the chance to win up to $25,000 in new tablets for their local school at Facebook.com/3MScreens by submitting an essay between 200 and 500 words explaining:
- Why does the school need the award for new tablets and how would the new tablets change the school for the better?
- If awarded the new tablets, how would learning be enhanced for students and teaching be enhanced for educators?
- What other creative fundraising, if any, has the school undertaken in an effort to bring new technology into the classroom?
