Last year I blogged about the Interwrite Makeover Contest™ which attracted entries from several New Zealand schools. This year eInstruction (who merged with Interwrite Learning® earlier this year) have announced their Classroom Makeover Competition, which recognizes teachers and students for their collaboration and use of technology in the classroom. Participants of this contest are asked to create a short music video demonstrating how classes currently use or would like to use technology to enhance instruction.
It was very pleasing to see that Ilminster Intermediate from Gisborne won a $15,000 Interwrite Makeover for their entry Digital Child. Just shows that NZ schools can foot it witht he rest of the world – well done Ilminster students!
The contest is open to all primary and secondary teachers and students in the U.S., Canada, New Zealand and Australia, and is not limited to users of eInstruction or Interwrite Learning products. More details can be found in the press release (PDF download) or the competition website.
