FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation Brings Technology to Second Grade Students at New York’s Sheridan Academy for Young Leaders
Boston, MA, November 26, 2012 – The Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation Corp., a nonprofit, tax-exempt entity established by attorneys from the law firm of Brown Rudnick LLP, awarded a Community Grant to New York’s Sheridan Academy for Young Leaders for the purchase of four iPads that will be used as a technological learning tool for young immigrant students.
Stephanie Sekaz, Sheridan Academy for Young Leaders and grant applicant, said, “The iPads will empower my students to take ownership of their learning. We will use apps for mathematics, science, social studies, reading, writing and more. Students will be able to play games that teach them new skills, and they will use the iPads in cooperative learning groups as well as independently.”
According to Al Wallis, Executive Director of the Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation Corp., “Tablets, such as iPads, support interactive textbooks and dynamic educational apps for all ages. Schools are just beginning to learn the powerful potential these devices have shown in reforming education, and we are pleased to help bring this new technology into the classroom.”
Created to support front-line educators who often do not have a voice in funding decisions, the Community Grants subsidize small, concrete projects, which will improve inner-city education within Boston, Hartford, Providence, New York or Washington DC within the coming year. The Foundation will generally consider grant applications monthly and award grants in an amount totaling not more than $2000 in any one month. The grant applications and an explanation of the program can be found at www.brownrudnickcenter.com/foundation.
