The special day has finally arrived! Today, April 25th, marks the start of my giveaway contest for a brand new Lenovo m90z ThinkCentre desktop computer. It’s big, it’s shiny, and if you’re the lucky winner you’ll be able to smudge the screen to your hearts’ desire because this thing has touch input! At 23 inches, and a full multi-touch experience, this computer would be great in an elementary classroom as a touch-powered, interactive digital learning center, useful for students with fine motor control problems preventing keyboard and mouse interaction, or as a learning kiosk in a public place within your school building. There are many more uses, but I’ll let the winner decide how they’re going to use it!
“How do you enter to Win?!”
Since it’s National Poetry Month, I thought it would be fitting for everyone to dust off their inner poet, and write a poem about using technology. It could be about how you use technology in your classroom, with students, with other educators, or even the trials and tribulations of navigating the social media landscape. Any poem about technology is fair game, whether it’s a haiku, a limerick, prose, or any other type of poem, but it MUST be original (plagiarized poems will automatically disqualify your entry). Submit your poem in the comments below, along with a valid e-mail address to ensure that I can contact the winner once selected. Entries may be submitted until 9pm EST on April 29th.
“Are there any restrictions?”
Other than having a pulse, and submitting a poem about technology in the comments, there are no other restrictions. Anyone that has a valid shipping address or P.O. box anywhere around the world can enter. Lenovo and Ivy Worldwide have partnered to make sure that all can participate.
“How will the Winner Be Chosen?”
The winner of the contest will be chosen at random using the Random.org True Random Number Generator. You don’t have to write great poetry to win, but it sure would be nice to read your best effort! Leaving a comment won’t be good enough, you have to write a technology poem to enter. While you may submit more than one poem, you are only allowed one entry per person, so multiple submissions will only count as one entry. The contest ends at 9pm EST on April 29th, and the winner will be announced the following morning on Saturday, April 30th.
