Effective Teaching - PowToon.com

To celebrate the new school year and 5 Million PowToons created – we’re giving away $5 MILLION worth of Classroom Accounts, FREE.

Each account gives one teacher access for him/herself and 60 students. So this way, you can create an engaging, interactive, fun, and IDEAL learning environment for your students where they can, themselves, create their own videos (I would have LOVED to get a homework assignment to make a PowToon instead of writing boring ‘report’…).
Think about it. Isn’t starting the new school year with a PowToon to hold their attention and get them EXCITED for the entire year…brilliant?
We believe that every student in the world deserves to have the best educational tools and technology. To make learning engaging, interactive, fun and AWESOME.
You just learned a step-by-step effective teaching method to hold your Students’ attention so powerfully, they’ll beg you for more. Now we’re giving you a complete Classroom Account (normally $96/yr) completely FREE so you have an epic and awesome new school year.
If you know a colleague who would LOVE to get a Classroom Account for FREE, just forward them this post.
And let us know which of the 4 tips gave you the biggest ‘aha’ moment you’ll use in your classroom this year. The whole tribe would love to hear your insights!
You’re awesome,
Ari
