Edgenuity Kicks Off Every Click Counts Video Contest
Online learning provider Edgenuity has opened its second-annual video contest, "Every Click Counts," which will award three prizes this year to middle school and high school teachers, including a $5,000 technology grant.
Edgenuity is a provider of online and blended learning courses, curriculum, professional development services, credit recovery programs, and other education-related services. Its Every Click Counts contest calls on middle school and high school teachers to submit short videos demonstrating how online or blended learning improves academic outcomes for students.
"We know there are untold stories of educators using online and blended learning to successfully personalize instruction to improve student outcomes," said Sari Factor, CEO or Edgenuity, in a prepared statement. "We are giving our school partners a forum to share their successes and show how they've worked with Edgenuity to empower, encourage and nurture students so they can reach their full potential."
In all, three prizes will be awarded: For the winner, a $5,000 school technology grant; for two runners up, five one-year student licenses for Edgenuity.
The videos should run 3 minutes or less and must be submitted by Dec. 7. Complete contest details can be found on Edgenuity's site.
