Squirrels Giveaway For Teacher Appreciation Week 2016

Teacher Appreciation Week is one of our favorite weeks of the year. An entire week dedicated to the young mind molders and avid users of our classroom mirroring solutions? Sounds good to us!

Teaching is often a thankless profession. That’s why this week, the Squirrels team put together a few surprises for teachers around the world as a small way to show our thanks.

Monday, May 2
We’re taking 30% off our AirParrot 2 Mac/PC mirroring software until midnight when you use promo code "APteacherAP2016" at checkout in our online store.

AirParrot 2 allows you to wirelessly mirror a real-time view of Mac or PC screens and stream content to Apple TV, Chromecast and Reflector-enabled devices. Classrooms using Microsoft Surface Pro tablets find AirParrot 2 useful since Surface Pros do not have a built-in mirroring technology like iPads (AirPlay), Chromebooks and Android Devices (Cast). AirParrot 2 adds that capability to Surface Pros so students can wirelessly display the tablets to an Apple TV, Chromecast or any teacher computer running Reflector 2.

Wednesday, May 4
We’re having a another special, one-day sale on Wednesday. We can’t say what it is quite yet! Stay tuned to our Squirrels, Reflector and AirParrot Twitter accounts to find out Wednesday morning!

Prize Basket
A lot of prize baskets are filled with items you never use. That’s not the case with our Teacher Appreciation Week prize basket. We’ll send one lucky educator a gift basket full of all the items listed below. SPOILER: It includes coffee. We know teachers love coffee.

What do you have to do to enter? NOTHING! Well, almost nothing. We just need you to sign up for the Teacher Appreciation Week giveaway below so we can contact you if you win! The entry form will be available all week. We will randomly select a winner on Friday afternoon. We will contact the winner individually before announcing it on our social media outlets. That’s it! It’s really that easy.

Our Teacher Appreciation Week prize basket contains:

  • $50 American express gift card
  • A bag of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee
  • A Color Cube of Post-it notes
  • Ruled index cards and an index card box
  • Expo dry erase markers and a U Brand eraser
  • Assorted binder clips and paper clips

October is Connected Educator Month 2014 #ce14

The amount of technology available has enabled teachers to connect in ways never before possible; social media alone has given educators an infinite amount of opportunities for collaboration and inspiration. Teachers are now developing as a whole and building the future of education as one unified, connected force. 

Connected Educators Month (#ce14) was created to promote the use of social media, workshops, webinars and other events. It aims to sustain the continual growth of educators working together online. According to the Connected Educators website, the goals of CEM include:

  • Getting more educators proficient with social media to improve their practice
  • Deepening and sustaining learning among those already enjoying Connection’s benefits
  • Helping schools credential/integrate connected learning into their formal professional development efforts
  • Stimulating and supporting innovation in the field

We encourage all educators to get involved in the movement, build professional development networks and join the community! Read Edutopia’s Resources for Connected Educator Month 2014 for tips on getting started, ways to connect and DIY professional development.

Also, visit the Connected Educators calendar of events to see the hundreds of activities (online and in-person) that anyone can take part in to become a connected educator!

Attending #ISTE2014? We’ve compiled a list of tips and tricks to help you get the most out of your conference experience! We’re also giving away a full pass to the conference below.

  • Take care of yourself - Bring a refillable water bottle to stay hydrated, snacks to stay energized, comfortable shoes for walking and get some sleep so you can take in everything ISTE has to offer.
