So… Who do you want us to partner with next?


Last year, we partnered up with InFocus and eInstruction to offer up to STARs some incredible deals.  Literally, hundreds of you took advantage of the rock bottom prices we were able to offer you on InFocus projectors and eInstruction CPS systems.  In fact, the promotions went over so well that we want to do it again next year! 

Of course, we’re always looking to make sure that we address the needs of our STAR Discovery Educators, so we’d like to open the floor up to you.  Who would you like to see offers from next year?  What’s the buzz around your school, the hot ticket items that you’d really like to get into your classroom if you could only find the right deal? 

Hardware?  Software?  Electronic whiteboards?  Cameras or  camcorders?  iPhones?  (sheeya, don’t hold your breath)

You let us know what you’d be interested in and we’ll try to make it happen!

    Yes – if I can get a grant or money from my district and the deal was good, I would want whiteboards and projectors for my teachers, more cameras, ipods with microphones, and of course new computers.

    Regarding hardware, would definitely consider iPods, camcorders, and pda with wifi and bluetooth connectivity. As for software, since we are looking at more online learning, maybe Elluminate or other web-conferencing software?

    Whiteboards would be great. We just got 2 this year, and need more.

    How about GPS?

    In our district we use a great interactive web page builder called SoftChalk Lesson Builder.
    All you need to know is how to word process, create a link and read directions. No fancy Front Page or Dreamweaver experience is necessary.
    I find this software teams up great with unitedstreaming videos and resources.
    Check it out…

    Interactive Whiteboard to go with the great digital projectors we earned last year. The incentives are really nice, make it easy to sale to my principal 😉

    Interactive whiteboards a must! I would also love digital cameras.

    There is so much. Our school is doing great with interactive whtieboards, but we can always use more! We are not at 100% yet. As far as other hardware we are in desperate need of digital camcorders and digital cameras. We have cameras, but they are either way out of date or do not have large memory cards and only hold around 25-50 pictures. As far as software is concerned I would love to see some great deals on Adobe products. Please just make sure that what is offered is also good for those of us who run MACS : ) Thanks for asking for our input!

    Handheld interactive white boards, digital cameras affordable for 2nd graders to use, ipods with microphones.

    How about deals on the Flip Video? iPods are always great, but not sure what kind of deal could be had. Wireless microphones (like the ones Joe had at the Florida institute).

    Document Camera and Apple Laptop are sure on the top of my list. Of course, more interactive whiteboards. I am an Exemplary SMART Educator and I would be willing to hold Day of Discovery sessions on how to use the board.

    Continue with lcd’s and digital projectors, I missed my chance last year. I would love to see discounts on digital cameras, video camcorders, usb or wireless microphones and web cameras. Thanks for asking!

    We would be interested in any of the following:

    electronic whiteboards
    document cameras
    good quality microphone for group podcasting

    Thanks for the chance to give suggestions!

    My vote is for Inter- active white boards preferrably the SMARTBOARD! Thanks for asking!

  15. Lee Kolbert said:

    Document cameras are very popular in my district. At first a lot of teachers had no idea what to do with them. Now, most agree they can’t live without them! Adding document cameras to your list would be a great compliment to the projectors.

  16. Debbie Thomson said:

    Thanks for the opportunity to give input.

    I would love to see document cameras or smart boards. I would love to have both in my classroom but the price is not in our budget. Your promotion last year encouraged my school to purchase the einstruction cps system and we love it. They were appreciative of the opportunity. I will be watching the DEN site for new info. Thanks for alowing us to have this opportunity.
