  • Danielle Vieira, an Autism Resource Special Education teacher from Brentwood Elementary School, received a grant to help fund iPods for the purpose of viewing video modeling of social and functional skills.
  • Jennifer Lambertson, a first grade teacher at IPS 65 received a grant that will help fund a SmartBoard for her classroom.

From the official announcement:

Bright House Networks Classroom Innovator Grants are available to area educators in K-12 programs who demonstrate creative and innovative learning experiences utilizing advanced technology, web based instruction, and/or cable programming to enhance the quality of education in our communities. The Classroom Innovator Grant Program is part of Bright House Networks’ educational initiatives that also include the Future Scholars Laptop Scholarship Program.

“This program is a great opportunity to recognize educators in the Bright House Networks’ Central Indiana service area for their contribution to their schools and communities,” said Don Williams, vice president/general manager, Bright House Networks, in a prepared release.
