Ginger is also the recipient of numerous awards from both VTEA and ITEA.
Need Funding for the ITEA Conference?
NOW...is the time to start finding financial assistance to attend ITEA’s Louisville Conference, March 26-28, 2009. There are numerous places to find financial support, and it takes a certain mindset to be successful. Here are some hints to help you!
- Compile facts on the ITEA conference, such as:
- It is the largest technology education professional development experience in the U.S. and you need that experience.
- The largest trade exhibition in the country will be available, showing the latest in resources, materials, and equipment.
- The nation’s educational leaders meet here to network, determine directions, and share decisions on issues that influence the profession.
- Create talking points (after reviewing the program) as to how this conference program could improve education for your students. Don’t forget to share that you will learn more about teaching math, reading, and science concepts!
- Stress to the administration that you will be attending as a representative of the school and district at an international conference—and what an honor it will be to go as an ambassador for the school. Administrators love to have their schools touted at functions.
- Print the preliminary program and share it with your potential funder.
- Apply to be part of the program, e.g., the teacher showcase known as the Technology Festival. Here you can share your best ideas, activities, or teaching strategies in a one-to-one discussion with other teachers.
- Have a small budget put together based upon travel, registration costs, housing, etc., so when asked how much you need, the answer is readily available. A single source may not have all the money you need, but coupled with another, you might get totally funded!
- Apply to be a Teacher or Program Excellence winner, bringing positive recognition to your school and program.
Most technology teachers have found success when applying for professional development monies early in the school year. Don’t wait until the last minute and expect success. When school starts, your funding efforts should start! Where to look for funding sources...
- Talk to your immediate supervisor about using professional development monies. That person may also be the principal, district curriculum specialist, county supervisor, or a combination of any of these individuals.
- Ask your local PTA for assistance using the information above.
- Search for project monies that relate to your school system’s special projects. Sometimes a project on special education, special needs, or some other area of emphasis includes professional development funding. ITEA conferences have an array of programs that touch on many different areas of education. Make the relationship and seek their funding.
- Become friends with local civic groups that support education. For example, the Lions or Rotary Clubs often will support teachers desiring to get professional development. Assure the group that you would be pleased to give a small report on what you have learned. They will be thrilled to know that they have helped your program, and you will have an opportunity to sell your good work to the community.
- Contact your district or state supervisor who deals with technology education. Frequently, they know of funding, such as the Perkins Legislation or the Math/Science Initiatives, that can be used to help you. You will have to complete paperwork, so start the process now!
- Currently, the Wells Fargo Bank (if in your community) is willing to provide limited awards for professional development.
- Do a search of local educational foundations. For example, selected companies have national educational funding programs that they wish to go to state or regional company locations. A local representative of a large organization may be able to find funding that will help you.
- Check with your local teacher’s union. You pay dues, and they may have a program that will help you.
Assume that you are going to get funded by every potential source that you ask. You may be surprised to find that the one place where you thought there was no funding, will turn out to be your new source. Remember, most of your colleagues are not aware of the potential for funding. That makes your opportunity for success even greater.
To stretch your budget money even further, be sure to take advantage of the special preregistration pricing. ITEA Professional Members will pay $279 for a full conference registration prior to February 27, 2009 ($319 on-site) and Student Members will pay $69 prior to February 27 ($79 on-site). Encourage your colleagues to become ITEA members to take advantage of these special prices—and nonmembers can also take advantage of ITEA's membership promotion discount (nonmember conference pricing is $359 prior to February 27 and $399 after February 27). Contact Lari Price at email@example.com for more information.
Hofstra University to Offer Design Workshop at ITEA Conference
Free Conference Registration and a $2000 Honorarium for Participants
The Hofstra University Center for Technological Literacy (CTL) is pleased to co-sponsor a special funded workshop in conjunction with ITEA’s Louisville Conference on Thursday, March 26th from 2:00pm-5:00pm in Room 212/213. This special workshop will invite twenty teachers of eighth grade technology education classes to participate in a research and development activity that is a component of the NSF-funded MSTP Project led by the Hofstra University CTL. The workshop will engage participants in a “hybrid” design activity that includes a computer-based design experience (using Google Sketchup to design a bedroom) followed by a physical modeling experience in which workshop participants will construct a model once the design is screen-optimized. When implemented with students, the activity will require five weeks of instructional time and its focus will be on embedding eighth grade mathematics (scale, ratio and proportion, geometry) into TechEd. The CTL will support ITEA conference registration for all participants, pay for a snack, and provide a $2000 honorarium once field-test data is received. Interested teachers can obtain more details and apply at http://hofstra.edu/ctl.
ABOUT THE CTL

Engineer Your Life™ Sheds Light on a Top Career Choice for Young Women
Engineering is a vibrant field that offers boundless opportunities to the innovative people who make up its ranks. It is an excellent choice for anyone interested in a rewarding, well-paid career—so why the lack of women engineers? Research indicates that low enrollment rates of college-bound young women choosing engineering as their major have led to dwindling numbers of females entering the profession, suggesting that women do not perceive engineering as relevant to their educational or professional goals. Engineer Your Life (www.engineeryourlife.org) is a national campaign that aims to close the
gap by enlightening girls about the opportunities available in the world of engineering. This dynamic initiative is spearheaded by members of the engineering community and WGBH Boston, who teamed up in 2004 to find out why girls weren't participating in engineering in greater numbers. The program is built around three key messages—creativity has its rewards, make a world of difference, and explore the possibilities—which aim to change the perceptions high school girls have about engineering and to encourage them to enroll in undergraduate engineering programs.
Anchored by its interactive multimedia website (engineeryourlife.org), Engineer Your Life showcases 12 in-depth profiles of young female engineers whose choices embody the campaign's key messages, and provides information on the paths they took to reach their professional goals. Their stories present engineering as a realistic option for young women who are interested in careers that make a difference in the world while being flexible, fun, and creative, and as a goal that is desirable and within their reach. Through the profiles, visitors to the site get a glimpse of the women who make up the next generation of engineers and enjoy a day-in-the-life look at their dynamic professional lives.
Beyond profiling female engineers, the site includes detailed descriptions of 11 engineering disciplines, with information on typical projects and starting salaries, thus becoming the ultimate resource for young women seeking to learn more about the field. It also contains academic information, including background on required courses and paths of study for high school, undergraduate, and graduate students. Guidance counselors, teachers, and parents also will find resources to help advise students about engineering careers.

New Report on the Status of Education
As the 25th anniversary of A Nation at Risk approaches, the Strong American Schools’ ED in 08 campaign has unveiled an original analysis and report card showing the lack of progress in the school reform movement since the release of the National Commission on Excellence in Education’s letter to the American people. A Nation at Risk, published on April 26th 1983, warned that American schools were being eroded by a “rising tide of mediocrity.” The report was one of the first comprehensive assessments of the American education system and explained that America’s once unchallenged schools were being overtaken by its international competitors, and America’s weak educational system was undermining American prosperity, security, and society. A Nation at Risk documented deep problems in America’s academic standards and expectations, the time allocated for learning, and the quality of the teaching force. ED in 08’s report, A Stagnant Nation: Why American Students Are Still at Risk, explains that few of the National Commission on Excellence in Education’s recommendations related to time, teaching, and standards, have as yet been enacted. The report also says that America’s economic future remains gravely at risk. The executive summary of A Stagnant Nation: Why American Students Are Still at Risk and the report card can be found at http://www.edin08.com/anationatrisk/. (Strong American Schools, a project of Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors, is a nonpartisan campaign supported by The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation promoting sound education policies for all Americans. SAS does not support or oppose any candidate for public office and does not take positions on legislation.)
