Compugen's Classroom Contest
A big thank you to everyone who participated in our classroom contest! We were blown away with all of the heart-warming submissions we received.
Our panel of three experienced educator judges helped us select two winning schools from the many deserving entries. After careful consideration, join us in congratulating of our winners. We visited each school and surprised them with a party to present them with their $10,000 worth of prizes.
Winner 1: Ms. Anita Bartolini from Loretto Abbey Catholic Secondary School from the Toronto Catholic District School Board who wins 28 HP Stream Notebooks with 1 HP Sprout!
Winner 2: Ms. Catherine Byrne from Our Lady of Wisdom Catholic School from the Ottawa Catholic School Board who wins 15 HP Education Edition x360 Notebooks with 1 HP Sprout!
As a thank you to all of our participants, we would like to offer a no-charge, one-hour training session with our on-staff Microsoft trainer to help you navigate through the latest classroom technology available. Click here to booking a free session.
Here are the top 10 reasons from teachers and students why they want to incorporate technology into their classrooms:
1. Windows 10 and the HP Stream Pro or ProBooks will be invaluable to STEM based classes for their enhanced functionality, applications, and software.
2. Enable collaboration as Students will be able to interact with experts, develop global connections, design, collaborate with peers, code, and produce media.
3. Increase accessibility of school's online books through the virtual library allowing students to read books without waiting for the hard copy.
4. In math, we would be able to share math problems, solutions, and file away our progress. We could easily collaborate online, in order to solve difficult problems.
5. Support the development of special needs students by text- to -speech software and access to digital books to learn unfamiliar words and decode new words.
6. With the HP Sprout, students can explore objects. The most impressive learning will come from a child's ability to scan the tool, make the changes and then print the redesigned model.
7. Apps can display things such as diagrams of the human body, aid in learning about math or even offer a way to practice making the shapes of a letter.
8. Strive towards a paper-free classroom by exposing students to forms of digital visual arts, to embed coding and other 21st century skills into math and science classroom.
9. With the use computers, offer two different lessons in a split classroom to customize learning for dual-grade classrooms.
10. Notebooks would definitely let us have fun while learning!
