LIVE! With Kelly and Michael “Top Teacher Week” Finalists Presented With Intel-powered Devices for Their Classrooms

This week, Intel participated in the fifth annual LIVE! with Kelly and Michael “Top Teacher Week” program which honors teachers across the United States. Educators are nominated by members of their communities who want to recognize their outstanding dedication and contributions to their schools.

On Monday, the show honored “Top Teacher” finalist Athena Davis of Cleveland High School in Cleveland, Tennessee. According to her “Top Teacher” nomination, Ms. Davis is an “amazing and creative teacher that inspires greatness from her students.” She teaches several subjects, hosts a faculty and student book club to share the joy of reading and also helps students with a variety of extra-curricular activities. As part of the program, Intel provided Ms. Davis and her classroom with 30 Intel-powered HP Pavilion x360 2 in 1 devices to help her continue to share her love of learning and reading with her students.

The Intel-powered HP Pavilion x360 2 in 1 device is perfect for the classroom, delivering the performance and full functionality of a laptop with the convenience and portability of a tablet, all in one device. The device’s 360-degree hinge gives students ultimate flexibility. They can use it as laptop to work on assignments, rotate it into a stand to watch videos, convert into a tent to use interactively, or transform it into a tablet.

On Tuesday, John Motchkavitz from Great Neck South High School in Great Neck, New York was honored. As part of the “Top Teacher Week” program, Intel presented Mr. Motchkavitz with 30 Intel-powered Dell Latitude 10 tablets.  Motchkavitz, affectionately known as “Motch” in his school and community, heads up the Business and Technology department and serves as the school’s Technology teacher. According to his “Top Teacher” nomination, “he is known as someone who makes both a difference in the classroom and in the community and his dedication to the school is unparalleled to anyone the district has ever come across.”

The Intel-powered Dell Latitude 10 tablets are lightweight and portable and perfect for classroom use. With 10 hours of battery life, students can keep learning all day long, and know that their information stored on the tablet is safe, thanks to Intel® Platform Trust Technology. Additionally, the tablet has Windows 8 Pro, so students can maximize their productivity with support for existing Windows desktop applications including the full Microsoft Office suite.

 Live! with Kelly and Michael

Intel-powered products make it easy for educators to enable the 21st century classroom so Intel was proud to provide two “Top Teacher” finalists with new technology devices for their classrooms. From Intel-based tablets that provide students access to a new view of their world at their fingertips, to versatile Intel-powered 2 in 1 devices that provide students with the freedom to roam and explore plus the power to perform, Intel-powered devices are an excellent technology solution for the classroom that we hope these teachers and students will enjoy.

Congratulations to all of the “Top Teacher” finalists honored for their amazing contributions to their classrooms.
