CAB Gets $23K Grant to Boost Technology
May 7, 2008 - The Charles A. Beard Memorial School Corporation has been awarded a $23,000 competitive grant through the AT&T Foundation’s wireless technology program. The grant will help fund a wireless campus project that serves school buildings in the Knightstown, Kennard and Carthage areas.
The wireless project is a joint effort involving the Henry County Community Foundation, the school corporation, and Ball State University’s Center for Information and Communication Sciences.
Focusing on building an initial wireless infrastructure, the project will help provide educational resources to students via wireless technology and provide a vehicle to enhance student learning through a new and exciting way of supporting curriculum. These resources include electronic books for student reading programs, internet access to mobile student desktops, and dynamic wireless assessment programs.
Bruce Sowers, Director of Technology for Charles A. Beard Schools, states “The grant will fund a milestone in the school district’s technology that will help propel its educational communications into the wireless era.”
Julia Ratcliff-Bouslog, Assistant Director for Henry County Community Foundation, indicates “We were eager to work with Mr. Sowers and Charles A. Beard Schools to obtain this wonderful and innovative grant from AT&T. This is another way the foundation is instrumental in making good things happen in our community - making it a better place to live and educate our youth.”
In 2006, AT&T contributed more than $101 million through corporate, employee, and AT&T’s foundation giving programs and more than $1.8 billion of historic charitable commitment to communities across the country.
“Everyone learns in different ways,” said George S. Fleetwood, President AT&T Indiana. “This program will utilize advanced wireless technology to enhance the education process. We look forward to following the progress of this exciting initiative.”
