For the 2015 – 2016 school year the West Branch Board of Education offered Innovative Technology Grants and awarded funds based on proposals of innovative use of technology in the classrooms. All West Branch teachers had the opportunity to submit a proposal for materials and programs. After the committee ranked the proposals, the board was able to fund six teachers.
This year’s recipients included Amber Wilson and Anne Cushman, second grade Damascus; Bridget Scofinsky, first grade Damascus; Allyson Burkey, second grade Damascus; McKenzie Wallace, High School English; and Kevin Buckley, High School Science.
Please see the attached video on how these teachers integrated the new technology and programs into their classrooms.
