Facebook Community Action Grants
On Thursday, March 28, Bondurant-Farrar was awarded three different Facebook Community Action Grants at the grantee reception, hosted on the Facebook campus in Altoona. This year, grant applications were funded for Morris Elementary, Anderson Elementary, and Bondurant-Farrar High School totaling over $33,000.
Due to this generous grant, the students and teachers at Morris Elementary will have access to thirty Virtual Reality kits. These kits will mean that a greater number of teachers will be able to lead their students through mini-trips in virtual reality that will enhance the classroom learning. With these thirty kits, students will be become more immersed in their learning by being able to see what they are learning about.
Anderson Elementary will utilize their grant award to place two 65 inch touch screen displays into collaborative learning environments. These displays will allow students to work on a common screen and work together on their common goal. The students will gain hands-on experience working with others in a 21st century way.
