Grant Opportunity and some Math ideas

Have you seen the grant opportunity from Learning Resources?

Learning Resources announces the sponsorship of a teacher grant hosted by WeAreTeachers. 
To apply, teachers must answer this question: 
“How would you use portable interactive technology to create collaborative lessons?” 
After the application process concludes, educators can invite colleagues to vote for their favorite lesson ideas. Each of the three top vote getters will win a set of three now!Boards and three GeoSafari Tuff Cams, a prize package valued at $2,000. 
Additionally, two merit-based winners selected by a panel of teachers will each win one now!Board and one GeoSafari Tuff Cam, a total value of $700. 
Teachers can apply for the grant online through May 22, 2012.
