Scientific Learning invites teachers, educators, and high school students to create three-minute videos that share how they boost student learning and achieve “brain gains” with the Fast ForWord or Reading Assistant family of products in the BrainGain School Video Contest. The contest launches this week on SchoolTube and runs through May 8.
The Scientific Learning BrainGain School Video Contest is open to any teacher, educator or student at the ninth grade level or higher (age 13 and older) who has experienced success with the Fast ForWord and/or Reading Assistant software in the past two years. Each video should tell its brain gain success story with a good narrative that clearly outlines a problem and a solution, and communicates real results. Videos will be scored on the following criteria: creativity and uniqueness, effective communication of subject matter, compelling story, and overall presentation. All entries must be uploaded to the SchoolTube website by 5 p.m. Eastern time on May 8.
Contest winners will be announced online May 25. The grand prize is a video camera and an award ceremony at the winner’s school that will be videotaped by SchoolTube. Prizes will also be awarded to the first place award winner in the high school students category and the teachers category.
