Maximizing grant funding for your STEM initiatives

STEM jobs are growing and profitable, with STEM workers tending to outearn other fields by around 26%. However, investing in STEM technology and other resources is often unfeasible for district budgets. Luckily, the value of STEM learning and technologies in schools is recognized by federal, state, and private grantmakers alike; meaning the dollars are out there if you know where to look. Utilise this guide to sort through the overwhelming beginning of grant searches. Identify and nail the perfect application for the grant that best fits your needs, securing funding for incredibly valuable STEM technology and programs that will benefit all of your students.

The Value of Certification

Recent graduates, of both high school and college, are chock full of knowledge and ideas. In order for them to have the greatest impact on their own lives and the lives of others, they first need to stand out from the pack and effectively communicate their insights with others. That is what Microsoft Imagine Academy can provide: opportunity for students to earn valuable and relevant certifications that boost resumes and applications, and the know-how to proficiently and clearly communicate with their peers. At Bitnet Solutions Ltd, we believe that no matter where someone chooses to take their talents, we can help them get there.

Enabling Analytics for Improvement ‒ Lessons from Year 2 of Fresno’s Personalized Learning Initiative

How to do you keep the momentum rolling for initiatives? First, you need to understand your current success: what's working and where can we improve? Second, you need to communicate that success to parents, teachers, principals, and anyone one else with a stake in student progress. Fresno Unified's Personalized Learning Initiative, in partnership with #Microsoft, Digital Promise, and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, integrated learning analytics to do just that. In this year 2 report, the results speak for themselves: The initiative is accomplishing its goals of closing achievement gaps and preparing students for "as yet imagined futures." Let's keep this momentum going to improve the lives of all students!

Customer Story: Fresno Unified School District

Fifth-grader Ryan Fernandez's engagement in the classroom changed when his teacher brought #Office365 and Microsoft Teams into his classroom. These tools enabled Ryan to leverage and focus his energy, spend more time helping other students, and actively direct his own learning. Ryan is a shining example of the ways in which technology can reach every student and be customized to meet their individual needs. Here at Bitnet Solutions Ltd, we are interested in using technology to give educators the resources to help each and every student succeed.

The class of 2030 and life-ready learning: The technology imperative

Could augmented reality become the future of our classrooms? New immersive technology encourages students to creatively build and problem solve. These tools keep students engaged in the learning process and help develop vital soft skills employers will always need. It is critical to put the right wheels in motion now in our classrooms to prepare students for this new world as early as possible. At Bitnet Solutions Ltd, we don't believe in using yesterday's classroom to prepare tomorrow's graduates. Contact us to learn more about taking advantage of exciting new technologies to transform student engagement.

Preparing the class of 2030

Estimates say that automation could replace up to 50% of existing jobs by 2030, as our current kindergartners reach graduation. The new jobs available will require stronger critical thinking, creativity, and social-emotional skills. Personalized education is key to developing these abilities. Technology can give students the opportunity to take control of their own learning journey and puts the teacher in a position to become a valuable coach in this process rather than a director. We at Bitnet Solutions Ltd are excited about the transformative power of technology in the classroom. Contact us to learn more.

TESTIMONIALS

Pulling all the pieces of information together has allowed us to successfully identify patterns of behaviour, for example difficulties on Monday and Friday morning, and take more immediate and effective action with pupils. Our new E-Dart system provides detailed evidence for external bodies such as Exclusion Panels, we never get questioned about our supporting data.
We loved working with Bitnets because we had access to a very knowledgeable, talented and experienced team but they were happy to work alongside our staff at the right pace for us and our school development.

Carol Mitchell, Strategic Director , Wells Park School, Chigwell, Essex

Bitnet Solutions personnel had done some work for us in the past which was quite successful. From that point onwards they were aware of our history & the impending need for us to change Servers/Operating platforms/ Systems as well as Email providers. During the length of our discussions it became clear we would have to migrate to Office 365, so Bitnet advised the Single Sign on facility and other key changes to the network management to improve productivity and mitigate outages. Being a school, our budget was very tight indeed so we had to take time to plan the best way forward & timing was crucial. Our first point of contact was Bitnet Solutions who helped us plan it in stages with work we could manage ourselves in preparation for the ‘Big Switchover’. Without Bitnets’ input, what they managed to complete in 4 days would have taken my team several weeks to complete. Bitnet were always very professional & easy to work with & invaluable in mapping out the schools needs for at least the next 5 years – which we didn’t have before. I’m certain we will be using Bitnet Solutions again.

In the last year and a half, as the ICT Network Manager at Chilwell Croft Academy, I have worked closely with Bitnet Solutions on quite a few occasions. On each of these key consultations and implementation stages, their understanding of our needs was extraordinary. Bitnet helped us implement our vision and ideas which complemented and fitted in with our ongoing projects and meant that the implementation was completed on time and without errors. With their expert knowledge and partnerships, Bitnet continue to provide us with invaluable advise on new and emerging technology in education so that we are able to make an informed choices, to benefit the school in the long run.
