Flip Video is offering a 2 for 1 matching program for K-12 teachers, providing two Flip Ultra™ cameras for $150* at www.digitalwish.org.
Manchester Center, VT, October 27, 2009 – Digital Wish and Flip Video are proud to offer a special matching program for educators. It was designed to make video technology more accessible, and help teachers affordably integrate video into the classroom. For just $150*, anyone can purchase a Flip Ultra™ camcorder for their favorite classroom and Flip Video will match every purchase with a second camcorder for free to help support American schools! With this matching program educators and parents can easily put the power of video into classrooms across the US.
To access this matching program, educators should register their classroom at www.digitalwish.org. Anyone can then purchase Flip Camcorders through their favorite teacher’s classroom profile or Digital Wish’s shopping area and the free matching unit from Flip Video will automatically appear in their cart. Teachers are invited to make a classroom wish list and invite their PTA to start fundraising for their technology needs. Donors can also register on Digital Wish and donate Flip Camcorders directly to the classroom or teacher of their choice through this matching program.
“Flip video cameras are a perfect fit for classroom use and a favorite among our teacher community,” said Heather Chirtea, Digital Wish’s Founder. “We believe that this matching program will help our most desperate schools combat the critical shortfall in technology funding.”
Educators should register their classroom for free at www.digitalwish.org to take advantage of the Flip Video educators matching program. The program is only available to non-profit K-12 schools in the US exclusively for classroom usage. Purchase is limited to four Flip Camcorders per educator.
About Digital Wish Digital Wish is a non-profit on a mission to modernize American classrooms and prepare students for tomorrow’s workforce. Educators build technology wish lists and describe how each resource will be utilized. Teachers write project plans or browse a free lesson plan library to find project ideas written by educators, outlining best practices in technology. Their classroom’s story is then posted online, for review by any donor. Digital Wish works with many institutions to set up cost-free grant programs for schools, then matches every donation with an additional 2%-10% in funding. Visit www.digitalwish.org.
