Congratulations Eden School District Teachers!

NYSERNet would like to congratulate two Eden Central School District teachers who were awarded the Distance Learning Scholarship from Internet2’s CAP program! These scholarship winners receive free, one-on-one, distance learning programs for their class through the Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration (CILC).

The two distance scholarship winners are Annette Bahun (6th grade) and Kelly Grimaldi (3rd grade). Bahum’s submission, ‘What Makes a Good National Anthem?’ and Grimaldi’s submission, ‘Talk with an Aussie; culture & history of Australia’ leverage the NYSERNet Research and Education Network. Eden Central School District is south of Buffalo and is a member of Erie #2 BOCES and through WNYRIC can take advantage of NYSERNet’s R&E Network.

About the scholarships:
• 38 teachers won 39 total scholarships (one teacher got 2 for different classes)
• Over 1600 students will benefit from the scholarships across the U.S.
• Winning teachers came from schools that connected to 7 different R&E networks: Connecticut Education Network, Iowa Communications Network, Illinois Century Network, KanREN, NYSERNet, OARnet, and OneNet.
• Each teacher will receive a free one-on-one interactive online course of their choosing from the Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration (CILC). These one-on-one courses usually cost between $84 and $336 each.
