Promethean launches #ClassroomStory competition

Promethean launches #ClassroomStory competition giving educators the chance to win a state-of-the-art technology package worth £3,000+

Stories about workload, wellbeing and record numbers of teachers leaving the profession are dominating the headlines in the UK, in what some are calling a ‘crisis in education’. Whilst the challenges educators are facing urgently need addressing, it is also important to recognise some of the amazing work teachers are doing and the impact they are making to the lives of their students. For the love of learning, Promethean has launched the #ClassroomStory competition to share treasured teaching memories and give educators the chance to win a state-of-the-art technology package.

Over the past two years, the Promethean Grant has celebrated schools around the UK, with pupils taking the limelight in the creative video competition which saw over 60 ActivPanels awarded to winning schools. This time around, in 2019, Promethean wants to hear from the teachers, in the all new #ClassroomStory competition.

The #ClassroomStory competition was previewed at leading education technology show Bett, in London back in January. Promethean created a video booth where for the duration of the show, educators came and told their stories to be in with the chance of winning an ActivPanel, an advanced interactive front of class display. Some really inspirational and heart-warming stories were captured.

How do educators share their #ClassroomStory?

If a teacher and their colleagues have a special teaching memory, share it as a video and celebrate what is positive in education! Promethean wants to know all about those magical teaching moments that give teachers/educators a sense of fulfilment.

Teachers can share their #ClassroomStory video on social media using the hashtag #ClassroomStory or by emailing their video to ClassroomStory@PrometheanWorld.com, the most inspirational stories will be shortlisted, and educators will be in with a chance of winning 1 of 5 ActivPanel packages – the shortlisted stories will then go to a public vote in July.
