21:05:14 [Message] jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: Hi Jen! Multi tasking. In Edtech Talk and SL at the same time

21:05:16 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: LOL

21:05:28 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: okay — you might need to adjust your own speakers  🙂

21:05:35 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: ohhhh Judith — really???

21:05:40 [Message] Judi Wolf -> -EdTechTalk: I am not getting any sound at all.

21:05:49 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: look to the right JUDI

21:05:53 [Message] jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: Just checking out a preso there. After yours I"m interested

21:07:39 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: should work

21:07:41 [Message] jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: Yep, there’s snow in Chicago

21:07:45 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: it was quite a learning adventure! 🙂

21:07:48 [Message] jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: boggin down commutes

21:07:54 [Message] Judi Wolf -> -EdTechTalk: I got it now! Thanks!

21:08:07 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: took me 3 hours for me to drive home last Tuesday night!!!!

21:08:11 [Message] Karen Henke -> -EdTechTalk: We had hail in Pasadena yesterday

21:08:34 [Message] Karen Henke -> -EdTechTalk: So glad I work from home and wear my slippers to work.

21:08:41 [Message] jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: Hi Vinnie Glad you made it home safely

21:08:41 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: Hi Vinnie

21:08:46 [Message] James Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: Ice in  Missouri

21:08:50 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: me too Karen–great life!

21:09:02 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: montreal

21:09:19 [Message] VinnieVrotny -> -EdTechTalk: Thanks Judy. Wasn’t too bad. My wife took longer to get from Antioch to Northbrook. Only two hours

21:09:28 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: saw the beautiful photos that Dave Chamberlain posted on Flickr from NH-ice storm!

21:09:32 [Message] VinnieVrotny -> -EdTechTalk: Is there a guest tonight

21:09:42 [Message] jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: @VinnieThat’s not too bad, actually

21:09:48 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: only light rain in Phoenix 🙂 65 degrees

21:10:17 [Message] kcaise -> -EdTechTalk: love grantwrangler

21:10:21 [Message] VinnieVrotny -> -EdTechTalk: @jepcke, yes, I realize that. It included a stop at McDonalds and Dunkin Donuts to use the restroom

21:10:21 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: hope everyone had enough gas and didn’t need the bathroom

21:10:27 [Message] Karen Henke -> -EdTechTalk: you are so sweet

21:10:46 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Just learned about GrantWrangler this week and it looks like a fantastic resource!

21:11:02 [Message] jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: I subscribe to Grant Wrangler newsletter

21:11:07 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: http://www.grantwrangler.com/

21:11:11 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: so valuable for teachers!

21:11:14 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: that is her MAIN site to find grants

21:11:34 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: http://www.mygrantwrangler.com/

21:11:36 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: the tips about how to write grants are very helpful!!

21:11:48 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: that is her community for Grant Gives and Grant Writers

21:12:18 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: this is how to get grants fed to your website:  http://www.grantwrangler.com/howto.html

21:12:41 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: the Ning is really well organized!

21:12:46 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: yes

21:13:05 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: and right now — they have a $25 AMAZON.com grant — opportunity.  You can check it out later!!

21:14:14 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: that is so practical and just exactly what teachers need!!

21:15:02 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: Hey CathyE   🙂

21:15:04 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: those deadlines are so frustrating when you don’t hear about them in enough time to apply! But that’s the reality of grants

21:15:25 [Message] Cathy E -> -EdTechTalk: Hello All!

21:15:34 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: like the SAMSUNG grant — have they announced the winners yet??   They said Dec 1 — but nothing yet

21:15:37 [Message] VinnieVrotny -> -EdTechTalk: Got to go. Kids need attention

21:15:48 [Message] Liz -> -EdTechTalk: This is a fantastic resource.  Cannot wait to share with my preservice teachers!  Are there grants for preservice teachers too??

21:16:01 [Message] VinnieVrotny -> -EdTechTalk: Happy Holidays to all if I don’t connect with you before the start of winter/summer breaks

21:16:16 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: thanks Vinnie — HOliday Hugs to you!!

21:16:42 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: preservice teachers are often connected with schools for their internships and student teaching so they may be able to apply that way

21:16:53 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: you mean more like scholarships??

21:17:20 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: great idea Sharon-open a PO box 🙂

21:17:37 [Message] jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: Wish Promethean would offer grant like SMART does

21:18:09 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: @jep..the smart ‘grant’ is more of a scam…I wish they would just be straight up and offer standard k12 pricing

21:18:31 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: those links make it so user friendly to find the actual grant applications! You’ve really thought of everything! Awesome site!

21:18:46 [Message] Liz -> -EdTechTalk: @Matt Agree about the Smart scam…

21:19:12 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: Peggy G  — why aren’t you in the skype call??

21:19:13 [Message] jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: @Matt Hi, I bet you aren’t miss the Midwest winter today

21:19:25 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: You didn’t call me

21:19:35 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: 1.  Make sure what you want the money for is a MATCH for what they are giving the money for

21:19:49 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: do you want us to call you??  Peggy

21:19:59 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: @judi…it is kinda cold here too tho…it is like 45 or so…u r right, tho…I totally don’t miss the heavy winters of the upper midwest

21:20:04 [Message] jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: The Best Buy Grant is pretty easy to get and very worth while

21:20:15 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: it’s ok- I’ll just listen and type. WOWs of week are already finished.

21:20:16 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: 2.  Judges do not know schools and programs — do not assume that they do

21:20:29 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: okay  — sorry

21:20:34 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: that "match" is sooo important!

21:20:57 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: Hope Hope Hope we get Best Buy for the 6th year this year — and hoping for $5000

21:21:13 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: 3.  Watch the WORD LIMIT………but be concise

21:21:14 [Message] jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: @matt No sympathy here LOL We have friends in Santa Monica originally from Chicago. It’s all relative. Snowing right now

21:21:25 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: these tips are so valuable and "right on"!!

21:21:49 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: Jen is a great grant wrangler herself!!

21:21:56 [Message] jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: Sometimes people are ruled out just because they don’t follow the directions

21:22:21 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: I like to write grants– but I like to win them more!!

21:22:21 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @jepcke-I think that is the primary reason people get ruled out–not following directions!

21:22:31 [Message] jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: YEp Like word limit. That always gets me. I type way too much!

21:22:52 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: @jepcke I have judged projects – some could have been amazing – but the applications gave SUCH sketchy descriptions – agreed, directiosn could have been read!

21:23:15 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: 4.  Give a big picture, be memorable, be specific

21:23:27 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: usually the word limit is a maximum not to go over–under is usually ok

21:23:33 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: 5.  Use the judging criteria!!  

21:24:35 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: Kstevens — Welcome

21:24:43 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: Hi K!

21:25:11 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: definitely agree with using the judging criteria! sometimes they even provide rubrics which are excellent guides!

21:25:33 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: we use a rubric for our Qwest grants in AZ

21:27:05 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: we also ask for assessment information for them to demonstrate how effective the use of the technology was in project implementation.

21:28:03 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: yes talk about the giving institutions

21:28:13 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: http://www.grantwrangler.com/GrantManager/templates/?a=466&z=0

21:28:18 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: this one is OUTSIDE THE USA

21:29:11 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: there are so many community foundations but you have to find those that are the best match for your needs

21:29:17 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: it is for outside of USA OR Canada……!! LOL

21:30:30 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: adding TONS more to delicious link

21:31:01 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: http://delicious.com/WOW2.0/?page=1

21:31:08 [Message] sroseman -> -EdTechTalk: are there less grant opportunities because of the economy this year

21:31:37 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @sroseman-great question! so many businesses are closing down!

21:31:58 [Message] sroseman -> -EdTechTalk: the downturn

21:32:09 [Message] jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: And send thank you notes when you receive the grant

21:32:15 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: what a great idea to send Christmas cards to businesses where you have applied for or received grants!

21:32:18 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: certainly could mean more competition for grants!

21:33:30 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: Delicious LINK updated http://delicious.com/WOW2.0/wow2_20081216

21:33:43 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: Yes, I send christmas cards to our vendors too

21:34:43 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: One issue I have become aware of with grants recently–technology is provided that doesn’t meet the district requirements and can’t be used or installed

21:35:06 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: example-Mac only district and grant provided PC equipment

21:35:12 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: http://www.dollargeneral.com/COMMUNITY/Pages/GrantPrograms.aspx

21:35:25 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: I wonder how the economic crisis will hit K12…I think it is going to take 6-12 months before we feel the crunch…

21:35:34 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: good example, Peggy

21:35:52 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Walmart and Target have good campaigns for teachers too

21:35:54 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: @matt did you read the latest eschool news article on that point?

21:36:07 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: @sharon…I’ll check it out…

21:36:29 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: the timing of grant applications is such an issue!

21:36:42 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: SET TIME ASIDE TO SEARCH FOR GRANTS — another idea

21:36:43 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: it can happen any time during the year

21:37:10 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: Tech & Learning used to have a Bulletin Board size poster with a YEARLY Grant VIEW list

21:37:11 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: @matt just discussing fiscal responsibility with my head today – technology may feel that pushback, we need to show clear links bet learning and our tech programs

21:37:22 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I think it’s a good idea to have a concept paper/draft of what you really want/need from a grant and then you are ready to quickly apply when you hear of an opportunity

21:37:40 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: @Peggy great idea!

21:37:55 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: do granting orgs favour public over private or vice versa??

21:38:06 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: it definitely helps you to meet deadlines when you are very busy!

21:38:38 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: great point–read the strings attached points when you apply for grants!

21:38:51 [Message] matt montagne -> -EdTechTalk: @sharon…I’m not so sure there are any links between learning and technology…at least in the way that we’ve traditionally used technology in schools…

21:39:36 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: 63,000 Independent Foundations

21:39:44 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: Smiles — they want to share their money!!!

21:39:49 [Message] jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: I always feel like the Target/WalMart grants are for more disadvantaged schools. My district is more on the affluent side

21:40:01 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @Matt-but hopefully when you are applying for grants you are thinking about new ways to use technology tools to improve learning 🙂

21:40:03 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: @matt we have some great research from learning sciences that does make that link between certain software/learning environments/ tools and learning – and studies that show the other way too!

21:42:03 [Message] jonelle -> -EdTechTalk: can you point direction to research showing technology-writing improvement?

21:42:33 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: technology writing???

21:42:46 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: http://www.membersproject.com/project/view/V8EWJV  Link for Donors Choose–have any of you had success with their awards?

21:42:47 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: could you explain @jonelle?

21:43:27 [Message] jonelle -> -EdTechTalk: how using specific technology tools  can improve writing skills

21:44:34 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: one of my teacher friends decided not to go the grant route because of the time it took-wanted SmartBoard, projector, doc camera. She set up a donation site and within a month she had enough money to buy it all.

21:44:41 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: @jonelle The best book on this topic has a very boring title – Cambridge Handbook to Learning Sciences – pub. 2006 – has some articles/papers on literacy

21:45:04 [Message] jonelle -> -EdTechTalk: thank you sharonp

21:45:19 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: @jonelle this book has become my new bible on ed tech research!

21:45:32 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: excellent advice–keep resubmitting your grant proposals to different locations

21:45:50 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: @Peggy – you have such a wealth of advice and knowledge!!

21:45:52 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: just make sure they meet the criteria of the specific grant you’re applying for

21:46:37 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: I’ve had a lot of experience with grants as a principal and grant administrator 🙂

21:47:04 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: I wish we in Canada had more grants available!

21:47:14 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: And being in Quebec is doubly frustrating

21:47:49 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: we need a Canadian grant wrangler

21:47:58 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: yes Donors Choose is the one I posted. It’s great and many teachers have benefitted from it

21:48:00 [Message] kcaise -> -EdTechTalk: like adopt-a-classroom

21:48:19 [Message] James Sigler -> -EdTechTalk: I heard of both of them

21:48:27 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: yes Kim–and anyone can go to that site to find a project they would like to support and donate to

21:49:04 [Message] jonelle -> -EdTechTalk: we had different successes with donorschoose.some funded- others not fully funded and some monies went elsewhere

21:49:06 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: that’s the problem sometimes–buy a certain company’s products. Need to make sure they are acceptable to your district

21:49:09 [Message] kcaise -> -EdTechTalk: many school districts have set up foundations to fund individual teacher grants

21:50:05 [Message] jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: @kcaise Sometimes those are the most competitive

21:50:10 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @jonelle-I’ve heard the same thing–some teachers seems to get everything funded through donors choose and others nothing-wonder if it depends on how you get the word out??

21:50:16 [Message] jepcke -> -EdTechTalk: At least that was true in my former district

21:50:34 [Message] kcaise -> -EdTechTalk: some of it is more who you know than what you know

21:50:46 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: connections!!! 🙂 powerful!

21:50:57 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: Ohhh — check this one out   http://www.grantwrangler.com/GrantManager/templates/?a=649&z=0

21:51:01 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: announced at NECC

21:51:33 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: people are looking for technology grants because that is often what their district can’t fund

21:52:01 [Message] jonelle -> -EdTechTalk: looking for technology training grant- we have technology equipm- need more teacher training

21:52:25 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: @jonelle-excellent point! the training is soooo important and often under-funded!

21:52:36 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: @Peggy thanks for that perspective

21:53:16 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: @jonelle – so true – often the grant money goes to hardware-software, but NOT to "peopleware"!

21:53:44 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: is there a place on the Ning where people can share their success stories with grants?

21:53:53 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: Anyone near Corning, INC   — http://www.grantwrangler.com/GrantManager/templates/?a=374&z=0

21:53:56 [Message] Karen Henke -> -EdTechTalk: mygrantwrangler.com

21:54:41 [Message] jonelle -> -EdTechTalk: we need $$ to pay trainers

21:55:20 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: @jonelle and $$ for PD seems to not be included in that grant money… very frustrating

21:55:25 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: http://www.mygrantwrangler.com/forum/topics/2222160:Topic:1656  Just found this–forum topic on "share what grants you’ve won" 🙂

21:55:32 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: the Best Buy grant keeps getting harder and harder to write   🙂

21:55:34 [Message] kcaise -> -EdTechTalk: @peggyg several of us share stories on plurk too

21:55:49 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: @Jen…. you have written it so often>!

21:55:52 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: thanks Kim-great to know

21:56:21 [Message] kcaise -> -EdTechTalk: it does jen. i won it for my campus in 2004

21:57:01 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: we have won each year — Best Buy — 2 years ago, I wrote one for a teacher at my old school

21:57:10 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: Our school PTO used to offer curriculum grants for teachers in our school–they could ask for up to $2000 for curriculum resources and it was a simple one page application. Teachers loved it!

21:57:12 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: this past year — I wrote it for a teacher at my new school

21:57:19 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: this year — LOL, I wrote it for me   🙂

21:57:26 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: and everyone!!  🙂

21:57:45 [Message] sharonp -> -EdTechTalk: I remember your visit to BestBuy when you won,Jen!

21:58:07 [Message] kcaise -> -EdTechTalk: that was such a fun shopping spree!

21:59:29 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: AZ has a tax credit school donation that goes to schools we designate and they can use the funds for extra curricular activities–many use them to support field trips, and technology to use in extra curricular activities 🙂

22:00:01 [Message] PeggyG -> -EdTechTalk: no writing required for the use of tax credit money 🙂 just turn in the receipts 🙂

22:00:23 [Message] JenWagner -> -EdTechTalk: The Lowe’s ONe seems pretty easy– http://www.grantwrangler.com/GrantManager/templates/?a=42&z=26
