Digital Wish: More than just ed-tech fundraising
You might be familiar with the nonprofit service Digital Wish as a source for ed-tech fundraising—but the site has become much more than a way to connect educators with potential donors.
For instance, Digital Wish works with technology manufacturers to negotiate ed-tech discounts for teachers. Current deals include two Trio Stealth 7-inch Android tablets with cases and internet cards for $220; a USB document camera for $79; refurbished Dell laptops and desktops starting at $229; and a $100 matching grant for Elmo document cameras. Users can check out the website’s current deals here.
What’s more, Digital Wish includes free lesson plans, and the organization recently launched a new volunteer matching service that connects teachers with “expert” volunteers by video conference.
