Happy Teacher Appreciation Week! We’ll say it over and over this week so get used to it! We are so thankful to have a community of incredibly passionate and creative educators like our STARs. As a small token of our appreciation for the work you do we have something fun planned every day this week.
To kick things off, our very generous friends at mimio have donated an incredible package for one lucky STAR Discovery Educator.
mimio® Interactive System
mimio Interactive System is a lightweight, portable and affordable device that turns any existing whiteboard (up to 4′x 8′ in size) into an interactive board. mimio Interactive Includes: mimio Xi bar, mimio stylus with AA battery, mimio Studio software CD, Mounting Brackets, and 16′ (5m) USB cable.
mimio® masters™ Tuition
In three sequential courses, the mimio masters™ program will put you in touch with other avid mimio users and develop your competency with interactive technologies. Conducted both online and in person, mimio masters™ classes provide a forum for sharing ideas and experiences as you work towards improving your teaching methodology, reaching your students more effectively, and energizing yourself, professionally.
Pretty cool, huh? Hopefully you will be the lucky STAR Discovery Educator who wins! All you have to do is post a comment to this blog post by 6 PM EDT today (May 4, 2009) that includes your name, email address and 1-2 sentences about the teacher who has made the greatest impact on your life.
One STAR Discovery Educator’s name will be randomly drawn and announced on the blog today after 6 PM EDT.
