Knowledge Adventure has announced the 2006 Knowledge Adventure Teacher Awards Program, an essay competition open to K-12 educators who are using technology to help students excel in the classroom.
To enter, educators go to the Knowledge Adventure Web site and complete an online entry form, which includes a brief essay on how the nominee is using technology to help his/her students succeed in their academic endeavors. Each month, running through January 2007, a panel of industry experts will review entries and select one submission for a Knowledge Adventure Teacher of the Month award. The monthly winner will be provided their choice of one site license of any product from the current Knowledge Adventure catalog, excluding Reading Readiness.
In January 2007, the Knowledge Adventure Teacher of the Year will be chosen from all eligible essays submitted. The grand prize winner will receive, for the school of his or her choice, a computer lab complete with eight computers equipped with an entire library of Knowledge Adventure software. The prize package is valued at $10,000 and also includes one full day of training for the winning teacher and all staff from the same school site.
