Teacher Grant

What exciting new tech-enriched lesson do you want to try next? Let ITIP Ohio fund it!

ITIP Ohio provides grant opportunities to Ohio teachers to reward excellence in teaching and promote innovative practices. ITIP invites all Ohio PreK-12 teachers to submit an application. The process is simple: create a video/screencast that showcases an exemplary lesson and demonstrates the innovative ways you are using technology with students; summarize the next tech-enhanced lesson you want to facilitate in your classroom; and explain how you will utilize the technology resource you are asking this grant program to fund. That's it!

Up to ten $500 grants will be awarded each year. Need some inspiration? Check out these examples!
