Stormboard was built with business in mind, but who knew that we would be so popular among education professionals? If you’re anything like us, you’ll know that learning is a lifelong endeavour, beginning in the classroom, and we’re very flattered that so many teachers have chosen an application like Stormboard to enrich their students’ education.
In recent months Stormboard has been tested and reviewed by a number of Ed-tech bloggers that have shown great enthusiasm for the application. You can read about their findings here (scroll down for Stormboard Press). Stormboard is used by teachers in K-12 and post secondary institutions spanning 77 different countries.
Because of the great enthusiasm being shown for Stormboard, we have chosen to extend education pricing (free for classroom use) until December 31, 2014.
We would also love to hear stories about how teachers are using Stormboard in their classrooms. That’s why we’re giving away a $100 Amazon gift card (books or supplies for you or your classroom!) to the author of our favourite story, submitted by September 31, 2014.
In your story please include:
- The grade level you are teaching.
- What sorts of project(s) you use Stormboard for.
- Whether you have any favourite education templates.
- What skills you believe your students take away from Stormboard.
If you haven’t had a chance to include Stormboard in your classroom yet and want to participate in the contest, you’ve got until the end of September to register for an account and get your students collaborating on a project.
Please send your questions and submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re looking forward to hearing your stories and continuing to help students grow!
