This season is about giving. So, you have five days to enter to win the Lenovo m90z touch screen computer. (Pictured with Steve Dembo's son here on the right.)

My thoughts on the m90z

This amazingly cool HUGE touchscreen computer is great for classrooms and homes. If you love your interactive whiteboard, you can play the IWB games on this computer and let the children use their finger on the touch screen. Instead of having one big IWB in the room, with this device you could have many devices.

This has become our main family computer set up for studying by my third grader who needs a lot of hands on technology facilitated learning and studying helps. He uses spelling city for spelling and lots of different math activities from across the web!

  1. Contest #1: I would like to thank my husband for mentoring me as a new teacher. He has been a teacher for 8 years, has an EDS in administration, and is working on his national board certification. This is my second year of teaching on an alternate route license, and he has been so important to my growth as a new teacher.
