Lenovo begins VR contest for teachers
Computer manufacturer Lenovo has begun a promotion called the "Ontario Visionary Teachers Contest" in support of a recently-released product called the VR Classroom Kit. The kit is a bundle of virtual reality hardware and software intended to classroom use. Through this promotion, Ontario teachers of classes between grades seven and 12 can enter a draw for a package of 10 kits for their school. The contest is hosted online at <http://www.lenovo.com/vrcontest>.
"Digital innovation, like that found through VR, unlocks students' learning potential and enhances education dramatically," said Marc Saltzman, a spokesperson for Lenovo. "Imagine being able to virtually discover animal evolution by exploring the depths of Africa. On-demand lesson plans offer teachers more engaging content and dynamic learning tools for new classroom opportunities."
