AVerMedia announced today the launch of the AVerVision Video Contest for North American K-12 and Higher-Ed classrooms. Teachers, administrators, or students are asked to create a 10-20 minute video describing original and interesting classroom lessons and applications with their document camera. Classes without a document camera can submit a video describing the difficulty of using traditional presentation technology in the classroom. Four new AVerVision document cameras will be awarded, one to each of the third, second, first and Grand Prize winners.

The contest will officially be open between September 1, 2007 and November 15, 2007. Winners will be chosen and announced by December 15, 2007. The video itself should be no longer than 20 minutes, and must showcase classroom applications and lessons using a document camera, or the difficulty of using traditional presentation technologies. Only one video per classroom will be accepted, and it must be submitted on a CD or DVD, and mailed to AVerMedia Technologies in Milpitas, CA.

Classroom Video Contest

The Grand Prize winner will receive an AVerVision SPC300 Premium Portable Visual Presenter. 1st Prize will receive an AVerVision300AF, 2nd Prize will receive an AVerVision150, and 3rd Prize will receive an AVerVision130.

Videos will be judged on originality, creativity of production, and creativity of the actual classroom lesson plan or application represented.

“This contest is a fun and exciting way for AVerMedia to award new and comprehensive classroom presentation technology designed to increase effectiveness of visual learning and teaching,” says Grant Woods, Marketing Communications Manager for AVerMedia Technologies, Inc. “It will also allow AVerMedia to display the winning applications for other teachers to use as a resource for fun and effective ways to use their own document cameras.”
