$236,390 in laptops and more for creative, tech-based preschool use

Teachers or parents who submit creative, promising practices for using technology with preschoolers in the classroom or at home can win one of 110 IBM ThinkPad laptop computers. All prizes will be donated to the teacher’s school, or to the child’s school if the winner is a parent. The top ten winners also will receive a Young Explorer Early Learning Computer Center with Riverdeep software for their school. Entries will be judged on: (1) how well the activity encourages learning and playing at the computer; (2) how well the activity integrates technology into learning; (3) accessibility of the activity for all children who might have a range of cognitive and physical disabilities; and (4) clarity of expression of the activity’s idea.
