Be a reporter for the day and win a laptop and free broadband!

Are any of your pupils budding news hounds? Would they like to win a laptop, a year's free broadband and an invitation to attend this year's BETT (British Education and Training Technology) show in London, to collect their prizes, and spend a day finding out about and reporting on all that is new and exciting in the world of ICT?

The National Educational Network (NEN) are running the 'Next Generation Learning LIVE! Reporter' competition. All entrants have to do is make a short report telling us how they think 'technology is changing the way we learn'.

There are four age categories

  • 10–11yrs
  • 12–14yrs
  • 14–16yrs
  • 16–18yrs

The report could be a 250–400 word written article or even 1 minute video or podcast. Tell us how technology is used in your school today or how you would like it to be used in the future. The only limit is your imagination. So if you're aged between 10 and 18, submit your entry by 30th November 2009.

Enter today!
