2021-2022 COE Preservice Educator ATIG


This grant is intended to foster innovative teaching and learning using technology. Projects should focus on empowering classroom use of technology; requests for professional development funding for conferences, online courses, etc. will not be funded. While projects where preservice educators create instructional content will be considered for funding, projects that focus on student learning through hands-on use of technology will be given priority. Possible projects include but are not limited to those that would accomplish one or more of the following goals: 

  • Enhance students’ digital literacy skills and critical consumption of media content; 
  • Promote student data privacy and digital identity skills; 
  • Empower students to demonstrate mastery of a learning outcome by self-selecting and using an appropriate technology tool to demonstrate learning; 
  • Explore real-world problems and use technology to respond to those problems; 
  • Apply a design process for problem-based learning using technology; 
  • Practice data science skills by gathering and analyzing data sets, creating visuals from the data, and making decisions from data analysis; 
  • Communicate effectively through the creation of visuals, media, websites, etc. using a variety of technology tools; 
  • Use technology tools to organize and collaborate with teammates. 


The grant is open to Butler University COE students who are interning or student teaching in the Spring 2022 semester. Students must obtain permission from either a Butler faculty member or a cooperating teacher prior to submitting their proposal. This mini-grant may be used to support projects for which other funding has been received (i.e. other grants) but this must be disclosed.
