The Potlatch School District is thrilled to announce that third-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 an interactive whiteboard for her classroom, which will bring technology into the classroom and create new opportunities for teaching and student engagement.
IETA is a non-profit organization that aims to promote and support the use of technology in Idaho classrooms. Ms. Burkgart was honored with this award at the IETA Conference, which took place from February 7-9, 2024, at the Boise Center in Boise, ID. The conference brought together educators from across the state to share their knowledge and best practices in using technology to enhance student learning.
Potlach School District is grateful for the funding provided by IETA and recognizes the significant impact it will have on Ms. Burkgart and her students. By incorporating this new technology into their lessons, they can create more engaging and interactive learning experiences that will help students better understand complex concepts and develop critical thinking skills.
