"To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of its Spirit boomboxes, Califone is awarding one Spirit SD Listening Center to one lucky educator every business day from March 26-April 6. The Spirit SD is ideal for group and individual reading activities, literacy exercises, English Language Development, English as a Second Language, and other language learning programs.
To enter, educators should submit their entries with the #Califone hashtag to the Califone Facebook page.
Each entry should list two ways the educator would use the Spirit to engage students and improve their learning. If one of the ideas involves helping students with their reading, be sure to mention the publisher and the program’s name. Alternately, a picture or video could be posted including the same elements.
Submissions will be evaluated by the level of creativity, use of multiple learning modalities, and the ease with which other educators can replicate the ideas. Participants are allowed to enter on multiple days, but a previously submitted idea can’t be used again. Contest rules and submission requirements are detailed on the Califone blog."
