Technology is an ever-changing area in our world today, and I’m happy to be able to tell you all about CenturyLink’s Teachers and Technology Program! As professionals and parents educate their children, there is an increasing demand for computer technology to be incorporated into schoolwork, and that can be hard on school budgets.
Luckily, CenturyLink is going above and beyond to help out communities. Not only do they provide the CenturyLink Campaign to Fight Hunger, but CenturyLink is also working with both private and public schools to give out Teachers and Technology Grants. This May, CenturyLink will be providing more than $124,000 to 27 teachers across Arizona in support of enhancing the innovative use of technology in their classrooms.
For our household, although we are homeschoolers, so much of what we do is technology based. Our kids explore our world and find new places to visit using computers. Another fun thing we just received was a Google Home. The kids LOVE asking “Hey Google, what is your favorite dinosaur?” Google tries to be helpful and let the kids know she doesn’t have a favorite!
We also use Google Chrome to access the internet to get onto our favorite websites. We use our computers at the libraries too! Our public school friends rely on computers to find out their next assignments, do research on their favorite subjects and come up with their next science projects. We are huge science fair fans ourselves! In order to connect with our world, we need to have internet access. When we go to the library I often jump online to work on the blog and answer reader questions.
Our oldest, Munchie, also loves coding. Since my husband Scott owns his own web development business, Munchie also has his own website.
