Fourth grade math and science teacher Aaron Rogers submitted a contest entry application to Troxell Communications in Phoenix explaining how he would use the company's communications tools in teaching a lesson on the area and perimeter of a rectangle to his fourth graders.
Rogers' submission landed him in the top ten of social media vote-getters for the contest... and ultimately was chosen as the Grand Prize by Troxell officials.
Rogers said his classroom will be getting a document camera... new audio equipment... a projector system that turns a digital projector into a smart board using a stylus instead of a marker... and a student-response system allowing for immediate feedback on questions posed to his students.
Troxell officials have already visited Rogers' classroom to visualize the space before the equipment is delivered this summer.
Rogers, who is completing his third year at Bell School, said Troxell is paying for the equipment, its installation and his training.
