As part of CEM, Knovation is also presenting the 2012 Contest, “Putting Passion into Practice,” which provides teachers with an opportunity to submit their personal stories illustrating how they put their passion into practice in their classrooms. Stories can be submitted online in the form of a video, a comment or narrative, a picture or a poem. All submissions will receive an entry to win a Kindle Fire. In addition, every entry will receive an “I Make Learning Personal” t-shirt. The contest page will be open for submissions from Monday, July 30th through Friday, August 31st.
