OKLAHOMA CITY, OK, April 29, 2020 – Today, the Oklahoma Education Technology Trust announced the 20 schools that have been selected to receive grants for the 2020-2021 school year.

Established to provide the latest technologies and teacher training to Oklahoma schools, OETT, administered by Communities Foundation of Oklahoma, is awarding each of the 20 schools with $40,000 to purchase new technology equipment. Additionally, each school will receive professional development through OETT’s partnership with the K20 Center at the University of Oklahoma.

Each school will use the funds to purchase items including, but not limited to, Apple iPads, Google Chromebooks, Microsoft Surface Tablets and various robotics and virtual reality equipment. Teachers will also receive monthly professional development focused on integrating technology to enhance authentic, real-world learning in their classrooms.

“As our world becomes increasingly reliant upon technology, the exposure students receive at school is shaping their future and becoming more critical than ever,” said Communities Foundation Executive Director, Teresa Rose Crook. “OETT is proud to be able to aid schools in bridging the gap between their students and the necessary technology they need to be prepared for the 21st century workforce.”
