Chris Nelson Memorial Grant Program
A program of the NH Society for Technology in Education, the Chris Nelson Memorial Grant Program provides educators an opportunity to fund a specific project in their classroom, school, and/or district. Projects to be funded will have a foundation in the use of emerging instructional technologies to assist and enhance content delivery.

Christa McAuliffe Sabatical
Christa McAuliffe, a social studies teacher at Concord High School, touched the nation when she was chosen from among 10,000 applicants to be the first teacher in space. After her tragic death in the Challenger space shuttle launch of 1986, Governor John Sununu established, with funding from the state legislature and private contributions, a trust to support this program as a way to memorialize Christa. Each year, the program, administered by the Charitable Foundation, awards a year-long leave of absence to an exceptional New Hampshire public school teacher. The sabbatical provides the teacher with the time, space, and funding to explore, through a self-designed project, new ideas and ways to enhance classroom teaching.

The fund also supports professional and leadership development, peer learning circles, the annual Wellborn Ecology Conference, a quarterly e-newsletter, a weekly article series on natural-history topics, and other initiatives to build capacity for high-quality ecology education in the Upper Valley.

National Collaborative for Digital Equity
NCDEThe Collaborative was co-founded in 2013 as the Digital Opportunity Consortium, by co-chairs Dr. Robert McLaughlin and Dr. Paul Resta. Reflecting the compelling need to speak to potential investors with one voice about why and how to approach digital equity investments and initiatives systemically, we refashioned the consortium as the National Collaborative for Digital Equity, headquartered in Weare, New Hampshire. NCDE works to address the compelling need to speak to potential investors with one voice about why and how to approach digital equity investments and initiatives systematically. The original Digital Opportunity Consortium continues to be powered entirely by volunteers. Our aim is to close the digital divide at home for the nation's low-income schoolchildren and their families. We also help educators and those who prepare future educators and school leaders to learn about essential technology resources, how to use them in teaching and learning, and how to ensure all students enjoy full access to them. We partner with communities, states, professional associations, companies, schools and preparation programs to provide digital access at home at the lowest possible cost to the most essential learning technology resources including broadband, computing devices, educational content across the PreK-12 curriculum, ongoing tech support, and low-interest financing even for families with poor or no credit.

Future Ready New Hampshire
Future Ready is an effort to maximize digital learning opportunities and help school districts move quickly toward preparing students for success in college, a career, and citizenship. The initiative will provide districts with resources and support to ensure that local technology and digital learning plans align with instructional best practices, are implemented by highly trained teachers, and lead to personalized learning experiences for all students, particularly those from traditionally underserved communities.

Digital Learning Day
Digital Learning Day is about giving every child the opportunity to learn in a robust digital environment everyday, with the goal of success in college and career. The New Hampshire Society for Technology in Education (NHSTE) is making a difference in New Hampshire's schools by taking the pledge to support the effective use of digital learning and technology in education.

#GoOpen New Hampshire
Through the #GoOpen initiative, the U.S. Department of Education supports States, districts and educators using openly licensed educational materials to transform teaching and learning. The #GoOpen initiative and the growing network of States, districts, and educators has not only provided a space for robust discussions about the merits of open education resources (OER), but also supported broader dialogue and dissemination of information on the policies and practices that impact teaching, learning, and collaboration. #GoOpen State and district leaders are documenting and sharing new approaches to professional learning for teachers, and curating resources that offer students and teachers options for personalizing learning, and strategies to support curating, creating, adapting and sharing OER.
