The Potlatch School District #285 is thrilled to announce that 3rd Grade Teacher Brianna Burkgart has been awarded a $1,649.00 grant from the Idaho Education Technology Association (IETA). This grant will enable Mrs. Burkgart to purchase a new interactive whiteboard for her classroom.
The IETA is a non-profit organization that aims to enhance student learning by promoting and supporting the use of technology in Idaho classrooms. Mrs. Burkgart was recognized for her hard work and dedication with this award at the IETA Conference, held from February 7 to 9, 2024, at the Boise Center in Boise, ID.
The Potlatch School District is grateful for the funding provided by IETA and recognizes the impact it will have on Mrs. Burkgart and her students. Introducing this technology into the classroom will provide new opportunities for instruction and increase student engagement.
Mrs. Burkgart’s students are in for a treat as they will now have access to an interactive whiteboard that will allow them to engage with educational content in a more interactive way. This technology will not only make learning more fun but also help students develop critical thinking skills and creativity.
We commend the Potlatch School District and Mrs. Burkgart for their efforts in enhancing student learning through technology integration in their classrooms.
In conclusion, the Potlatch School District #285 is excited about this grant award as it will provide its students with an innovative tool that will help them learn more effectively while keeping them engaged throughout their classes. We look forward to seeing how Mrs. Burkgart incorporates this technology into her teaching practice and how it positively impacts her students’ academic performance.
