Touro College GST Helps Community Classrooms With Technology Funding June 23, 2015

Touro College GST Helps Community Classrooms With Technology Funding, Manhattan, New York

Touro College Graduate School of Technology is proud to educate the technology leaders of tomorrow. As part of that mission, the school’s dean, Dr. Isaac Herskowitz, recently led his graduate level class on an exciting project to shine a light on the unmet technology needs in schools.

Though we live in the hyperconnected, technology-driven 21st century, many school classrooms today lack the funding they need to equip students with modern tools of learning. Teachers must become tech advocates for their classrooms or raise the money themselves to buy the products they need.

To illustrate this reality, Dr. Herskowitz divided his Foundations of Instructional Technology class into teams, each of which included local schoolteachers in need of classroom technology tools. The students were then tasked with raising funds on the teachers' behalf.

  

The Touro College Graduate School of Technology students dove into the project, using online fundraising sites and social media to spread the word. Through their efforts, they all successfully met their fundraising goals, securing the donations required to purchase headsets for language learnerscordless drills for aspiring engineerscamcorders for budding filmmakers, and much more.

In addition to supporting local students with exciting new classroom tools, Dr. Herskowitz’s students learned invaluable lessons on how to be technology advocates in their own current and future classrooms.
