Classroom video contest opens

Pearson is asking teachers nationwide to enter a video contest to share their individual classroom experiences with NovaNET and NovaNET Courseware, digital learning programs for middle school students through adult learners. Teachers will answer this question: How are you making your mark on education to prepare your students for college and careers?

To enter, a teacher will work with his or her students to create one video sharing a thought-provoking story about how Pearson’s NovaNET and NovaNET Courseware programs have helped the class reach academic goals. Video entries, not to exceed two minutes in length, should be submitted to by May 14, 2011.

Pearson will award the grand prize winner with an Apple® iPad® and a trip to 2011 International Society for Technology in Education Conference (ISTE) in Philadelphia, Penn., June 26-29.
