Educators Can Win $10,000 in Technology Products and a Call with Santa for Their Classrooms from Skype

SOURCE: Skype

DESCRIPTION:

We are very proud that Skype's technology helps enable amazing learning experiences for students across the globe. From explorer Mark Wood connecting classrooms in Nepal and Tsunami-damaged Japan for an environmental discussion to students getting a chance to learn from NASA and even surprise video calls from NBA superstar Shaquille O'Neal, Skype in the classroom empowers teachers to bring truly remarkable experiences to their schools.

But now we're going to go a step further in remarkable experiences.

Starting today, we're hosting Santa In the Classroom, a contest providing teachers with a chance to win* $10,000 in technology products from the Microsoft Store and a Skype call with Santa Claus this holiday season!

Students will be able to broaden their horizons through the use the new technology, and exposure to the cutting-edge devices and software will give them a clear advantage in their next years of school.

Here are more specifics on how K-12 teachers and educators can enter:

Skype in the classroom website:
Existing Skype in the classroom members can sign-up by visiting the Santa in the classroom project page and clicking on the "Sign Up to Take Part" button.
