It’s Time To Give Away A Lenovo ThinkCentre M90 (A 23 inch all-in-one touch screen computer)
First, a big thank you to Lenovo and Ivy Worldwide for running this contest! These two companies organized the bloggers and have taken on the responsibility for making sure that each winner receives one of these amazing computers. I will list the other bloggers once again when I announce the winner of this contest next week! Now… how to win a computer in this 21centuryedtech Contest.
In the spirit of my Games In Education Series, I am asking readers to submit two gaming sites that promote content and learning in education. These can be sites for specific games found on the web… or an entire site dedicated to games. Since my series is currently dedicated to kids creating games, I am asking readers to submit educational games that have already been made for student learning. To keep with the spirit of free, I am asking that these games be no cost or very low cost. I am also asking that these games be available for multi-platform. I have created a Google form for entries which asks for your name, email, game/site name, game/site address, and a short review. I will use the Random Name Generator suggested by Richard Byrne in his contest that was also used by Kathy Schrock, to pick the winner. You may wish to investigate this cool tool further.
This contest is open to any adult educator ( any adult involved in the education of students) within and outside the United States. I appreciate all of those readers I hear from all across the world! One entry per person via the Google Forms Link which you will find below! Contest begins Saturday, April 30 and ends Wednesday, May 4, 2011. While it is not a requirement, I would appreciate it if all contestants would sign up by RSS or email so that you can follow this blog and also learn about all of the games others contribute… plus a whole lot more. Now, take a moment to either find two games or share what you may already be using. Try to share something many of us may not know about, and be sure to enter early. The idea is to build a list that we have collectively compiled and from which we can all benefit. When you are ready, click on the contest link below and I wish you the very best! You just might be the winner of the amazing Lenovo ThinkCentre M90 23 inch Touch Screen All-in-One Computer.
Thanks for joining me in this post and I really hope you entered the contest! I am excited about sharing our collective information and also having this opportunity to award one reader with a free computer. If you are not a subscriber please take me up on my invitation to subscribe by RSS or email! Remember you can follow me on Twitter at mjgormans and also take a moment to retweet this article using the button below. I look forward to sharing, networking, and reading your game ideas! Have a wonderful week and continue you journey towards educational transformation in the 21st Century! – Mike
