The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) announced a $1.2 million grant to DonorsChoose designed to empower teachers through the funding of professional learning projects that reflect the diversity – and aspirations – of classroom teachers nationwide. The grant automatically funds nearly 700 professional development projects that 600 teachers across 36 states have identified for their own continued learning. Secondly, the grant also provides access to Neuroteach Global, an online professional development tool that helps teachers and school leaders translate the latest research on how students learn into their own classroom practice, for teachers who would like to use the resource. In addition to funding all current teacher professional development projects and providing access to Neuroteach Global, CZI is matching donations to new professional development projects on DonorsChoose, while funds last.
