“We are very pleased to be a part of providing innovative technology in the classroom that enhances the learning experience for students in these schools,” said Larry Walters, CenturyLink vice president and general manager for Utah. “It is exciting to see teachers implement creative teaching techniques that assist students in hands-on learning.”
Last year, more than 235 teachers applied for grants in Utah, with 27 winners selected by a review committee comprised of community members and CenturyLink representatives. The winning teachers’ schools each received a grant to be used to purchase technology to benefit students in the classroom.
CenturyLink service is neither required nor considered in the review of applications.
The Foundation will award more than $1.4 million in grants to support technology in the classroom through its 2014-2015 Teachers and Technology program, offered throughout the company’s service areas in the U.S.
Grant winners will be announced between April 1 - May 15, 2015.
