Each year MSET offers grants to educators who are MSET members. We are seeking grantees who are focusing on personalized learning in their innovative work with technology and we will be offering up to $2,000 per grant.
Grant recipients will be asked to present a poster session at CG20, and to create a Weebly webpage, for the MSET website, based on the topic of their grant proposal in an effort to share big ideas with other educators so that they can replicate the concept in their schools/classrooms. Once approved for the grant, winners will receive guidance on creating the page.
Guidelines for 2019-2020
MSET offers Maryland educators an opportunity to apply for grants to encourage personalized learning through the effective use of technology in teaching, leading, and learning. Grants not to exceed $2,000 will be awarded through a competitive grant process. Grant funding must be used to promote innovative uses of instructional technology and address digital learning skills to improve student achievement.

The Science of Music
Everyone can make music but there are few people who understand the science of how music is actually created. Our students already create their own music and podcasts, but it is time to take it a step further as students actually build the devices that allow music to be captured and manipulated. Learning to build synthesizers allows students to learn their own music.
