Hewlett-Packard Offers $470K to Forward Thinking Colleges in Australia

Good news for a few lucky schools in the South Pacific! As Computerworld reports, Hewlett Packard has just announced three colleges as the official winners of their regional Innovation in Education (IIE) grants program.

The grants were created by HP to reward schools that have been bold in promoting and developing technological innovation in regards to teaching style, curriculum, and choice of college degrees offered. As such, the rewards are well-fitting: each school will receive $150K in desktop, laptop, notebook and tablet PCs, as well as printers and other digital goods from HP. In addition, the faculty of the winning schools will be able to take part in workshops teaching on the best and latest theory and practice in integrating technology in the classroom.

So who are the lucky schools? One is Immanuel Lutheran College in Buderim, Queensland; another is Our Lady of Mercy College in Parramatta, New South Wales. The third is St Mary's College in Adelaide, who won for their Robotics division within their engineering degree program, where students are introduced to robotic design and programming. According to Giovanna Iannicelli, St Mary's College's technology coordinator, this grant "will develop the program by allowing students hands-on access to computer resources... the students will have the technology at their fingertips in a classroom while they're doing the programming for the robots - rather than having blocks of programming in a computer lab, away from what they're actually building."

These schools are truly forward thinking institutions, and HP's executives make no qualms about how proud they are to hand over these awards. Says Peter Ekstedt, Director of Global Citizenship at HP Asia-Pacific and Japan: "The successful proposals put forward serve as lighthouse examples of how technology-enabled schools, students and teachers can lead the way in transforming education in this country." Look forward to more awards like this as still more colleges reach out to new technology in the future.
