We here at Barry Sanders Supercenter know that a good education is the best foundation for a young person’s life.
Stillwater, Oklahoma (PRWEB) April 16, 2014
Barry Sanders Supercenter, a Stillwater new and used car dealership, partnered with Stillwater Public Schools for the Winter Tune-Up Program, where teachers had the chance to win an iPad on Tuesday, April 15, 2014 given by Barry Sanders Supercenter, a Stillwater Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram dealership. Stillwater High School teacher LuAnn Belcheff took home the grand prize.
Beginning in January of this year, Barry Sanders Supercenter partnered to host a professional development program called Winter Tune-Up for Stillwater-area teachers. Education professionals from around the city were invited to attend various workshops focused on bringing new technology into the classroom. Attendees were given one ticket for the iPad drawing for each session they went to.
At the first program, teachers were given a coupon to present at Barry Sanders Supercenter for a discounted oil change. The teachers were then given a ticket for a chance to win an iPad upon attending every voluntary session afterward. The more programs the teachers attended, the higher their chance was for winning the grand prize.
The programs themselves varied across many software platforms. The workshops helped teachers to optimize in-classroom tools such as Blendespace.com, a free website that helps teachers create complimentary lesson images, files and digital content. Other sessions covered more efficient ways to navigate Google Drive as well as ways to implement student progress tracking tools like Think Through Math Report Training.
“We here at Barry Sanders Supercenter know that a good education is the best foundation for a young person’s life,” said General Manager Jeremy Bird. “We have very much enjoyed the opportunity to incentivise such a tech-centric program for local teachers over the past few months. Rewarding a lucky teacher who is dedicated to improvement in the classroom with an iPad is just the icing on the cake.”
