The Beacon Invites Submissions for Technology-Focused K-8 Lesson Plans

Technology and entertainment blog The Beacon is inviting submissions of technology-focused lesson plans for its Technology Teacher Grant competition.

Prizes of up to $1,000 will be awarded for lesson plans in any subject that teach K-8 students why technology is important (and how to use it). Plans must encourage participation and engagement with in-class demonstrations and hands-on learning opportunities.

Six lesson plans will be chosen to receive gift cards for classroom supplies, educational subscriptions, and apps for students. First- and second-place winners will receive gift cards valued at $1,000. Third-, fourth-, fifth-, and sixth-place winners will receive gift cards valued at $500 each. Winners will be announced (and winning lesson plans will be featured) on The Beacon.

All applicants must be employed full-time as a K-12 grade teacher at an elementary school, middle school, or high school in the United States. In addition, all applicants must be a U.S. citizen or permanent legal resident of the United States.

For complete program guideline and application instructions, see the Beacon website.

Deadline: December 9, 2017
