SCOTTSDALE, AZ (March 18, 2012) – eInstruction, a leading education technology company, today announced details of its new “Classroom Reimagined” video contest for grades K-12. Educators in the U.S. and Canada (excluding Quebec) are invited to submit short, creative videos demonstrating how they are using the new Insight 360™ in their classrooms to drive student engagement and achievement.
Insight 360 is the all-in-one classroom instruction system that enhances best teaching practices, utilizes existing lesson content, and drives student learning, while integrating with new and existing education technology. The powerful, next generation of easy-to-use software enables educators to boost student learning and gain immediate results of formative and summative assessments using a variety of web-enabled devices such as smartphones, laptops, tablets, or the iPad®.
The eight-week contest from March 18 to May 17 is designed to recognize and reward teachers that demonstrate how Insight 360 is being used with the iPad and other web-enabled devices to seamlessly deliver interactive instruction and assessment with real-time results.
“Insight 360 is changing the way technology is integrated in the classroom by magnifying an educator’s ability to provide highly engaging, personalized instruction,” said Shelly Bodine, Vice President of Marketing at eInstruction. “We are excited to see the creative and diverse ways teachers are using this new technology to enhance the interaction and engagement between teacher and student.”
The top three video entries, announced on May 30, will be awarded Insight 360 software licenses for their school. The top video will receive forty (40) licenses of Insight 360 Premium Edition with one year of Web Access. The second and third place videos will receive twenty (20) and ten (10) licenses, respectively. The combined prize packages are valued at more than $150,000.
