This sweepstakes asks teachers and students to submit, using 250 characters or less, their vision of the role of technology in education. Those thoughts will then be posted to an interactive Google Map mashup on the eInstruction site. The "mashup" of Google Maps (technology) and the student/teacher collaborations (content) is designed to mirror the merger of eInstruction and Interwrite Learning. The student/teacher submissions, which will only be required for posting to the map, should highlight classroom achievements made possible by the use of technology or focus on the benefits of a technology-empowered classroom. The work, along with the name of the school, the grade, and the teacher’s name, will appear on a Google Map of the world on the sweepstakes’ web site.
