|Digi-Block Announces Call for Kohlberg Grant for Professional
Digi-Block, Inc. ( http://www.digi-block.com/ ), a developer of math education materials and the Digi-Block program, is accepting grant applications for professional development workshops led by Harvard mathematician and Digi-Block founder, Dr. Elon Kohlberg.
This first-time grant is open to all educators focused on mathe- matics in pre-K to grade six.
Kohlberg's presentation covers a comprehensive examination of whole numbers, from place value and number sense through the development of algorithms for all four operations. Kohlberg also examines why so many young children encounter difficulty in learning math and how roadblocks to understanding affect their future success in mathematics.
Up to ten grants will be awarded during the 2007 calendar year.
Applications will be considered as they are received. Early applications will have an advantage, as available dates will fill quickly. Applicants are not required to have experience with Digi-Block. Workshops will take place in the 2007 calendar year (spring, summer, or fall).
The grant application form is can be found on the Digi-Block Web site.
