Techie Homeschool Giveaway
Enter the newest Techie Homeschool Giveaway and win three popular devices every techie homeschooling family needs.
I figured since I’m hosting the #TechieHomeschool IRL (In Real Life) blog series this month, with 20 days of techie tips from real-life techie homeschool moms, why not give away some prizes to encourage more digital learning in your family?
Techie Homeschool Giveaway Prizes
Acer Chromebook ($199 value)
A Chromebook is my top recommended computer for homeschooling online. They’re designed to be used with Google apps, such as Docs, Sheets, Slides and Drive. You can access your online classes, research on the web, watch videos and learn with web-based apps. Unlike with a tablet or mobile phone, your kids will develop keyboarding skills and have a larger screen to avoid eye strain.
The prize Chromebook for this giveaway is a manufacturer refurbished Acer CB3-532-C47C with 15.6″ screen, Chrome OS, Intel Celeron N3060 processor, 2GB RAM, and 16GB flash drive
Google Chromecast ($35 value)
With a Chromecast, you can easily mirror what is on your computer or mobile device to your family’s TV. Say you’re studying the Amazon Rainforest and discovered a website with lots of images of animals. You (or an older child) can read the text while everyone else views the images on the big screen. Or if you’ve created a YouTube playlist for your Ancient Egypt study, you can cast it up so everyone can see instead of crowding around a laptop. You can even cast the photos Sally took on last week’s nature walk while she explains each image. A Chromecast is a must-have for times when your whole family is learning together.
Google Home Mini ($49 value)
A Google Home Mini reduces the demands on homeschooling mom. It can answer (most of) your child’s curious questions, keep everyone up to date with schedules and help with spelling and math facts. You can set timers and play fun games. It also doubles as a speaker for listening to audiobooks, podcasts and song playlists.
