Grant Possibility - Next Generation Learning Challenge
Here is an interesting grant possibility to design a module for middle school students to improve their ability to successfully learn core content standards. Information about the script is here: http://nextgenlearning.org/
they do give two examples of the kind of projects they are looking for:
A modularized online course of study that may be composed and sequenced with a variety of other materials and deployed in a variety of learning environments. Note: there is not an expectation that an entire year-long course of study be completed.
An online, collaborative environment in which students are asked to practice and show mastery of literacy Common Core Standards within the context of solving biology problems.
