You can use Amazon to shop for DonorsChoose

20:37 - Peggy George
what a clever idea!!!!

20:42 - @plnaugle(Paula)
DonorsChoose is currently just for teachers in public schools.

20:48 - Peggy George
How do you do that Francie?

21:13 - Francie Kugelman
They added Amazon as a vendor. You just can't shop there during the Christmas season.

21:14 - Peggy George
it would be awesome if DonorsChoose could be available for private schools too!

21:18 - @plnaugle(Paula)
Every public school teacher should definitely post a project on DonorsChoose.

21:45 - Eileen 1
I way I knew that about ISTE.

21:58 - Peggy George
so important to read the tutorials and follow the directions for each grant!

22:28 - Francie Kugelman
Gates Foundation allowed for professional development last year. Laptops for teachers, and professional development - including the hotel! I hope they do this again!

25:30 - Angela

You can ask for field trips and visitors to your school! That is what I currently do at DonorsChoose, reading those grants.

25:40 - Lorie Moffat

26:01 - Peggy George
Dacia, is there a way we can see the projects you got funded by DonorsChoose on their website?

Francie thank you so much for all of your tips!!!!

26:43 - Angela

I led a face to face pd session this past Thursday. It was our 4th session in a series of 7. One of my teachers left with tears in her eyes because all she has in her classroom is a laptop, one desktop and a SMART Board. Very little funding opportunities. I'm excited to see her in February at our next meeting to share all your great ideas. I can't thank you enough for this presentation.
