Promethean could help…
Each year, school budgets are becoming increasingly restrictive and continue to decrease by a significant amount. It is very important that school leaders use every penny effectively to make sure the budgets are getting spent in conjunction with meeting your schools objectives for the year. School budget cuts are affecting staffing, technology and much more…
According to our annual State of Technology In Education Report, 72% of educators believe that budgetary pressures will impact student education the most in 2017/18 and beyond.
“Huge issues with funding. The technology in schools now may not be updated and that could have major implications.”Primary Academy Teacher
Our report found that 0% of head teachers think that there is too much budget allocated to technology! With budget cuts, this certainly will not help the situation as technology is going to be continuously be pushed to the back of the queue.
“Schools are not given enough of a budget to be able to provide adequate technology for the modern world for which we are preparing students.” Deputy Head – Academy Secondary
In order to support and help with these adverse stats from our State of Technology in Education report like “28% of head/deputy heads feel that too little budget is being allocated to technology”, Promethean have launched The Promethean Grant.
At Promethean, we think something other than financial budgets should play a part in a school’s ability to acquire new technology, and enhance its digital learning capabilities and create a modern learning environment for your classroom/school.
To help more schools take advantage of edtech and help fight those budget cuts, we will be giving away 30 ActivPanels for free to the 30 schools we think show the most innovation and creativity, along with their need for new edtech and the overall impact it will have.
“Lack of budget largely defines the lack of technology plans. If we had the money we would do more.” Network Manager – Academy Secondary
We found that 51% of teachers are constantly striving to innovate by using technology as a tool for education. Winners of the Promethean Grant receive an orientation session with one of our show and tell team members, who help integrate their brand new ActivPanel and provide useful hints and tips in making the most out of their classroom’s new panel.
The Promethean Grant has now closed for the year. Why not take a look at one of the winning videos here!
