Calling all schools—Our Extreme Classroom Tech Makeover is back!

Calling all schools—Our Extreme Classroom Tech Makeover is back!

Acer is offering K-12 schools across the country a chance to transform their classroom with the gift of tech.

Education is enhanced by immersive technology that not only engages students, but challenges them to think critically and ask questions. That being said, educators often find themselves spending their own money to improve their classroom experience. Acer wants to help! One lucky classroom will receive TravelMate B117 laptops—a powerful tool for students in the classroom and beyond.

Acer has partnered with education influencer and #EdChat founder, Steven Anderson to get the word out about this amazing makeover. Steven, along with a panel of industry experts, will help decide the winner.

What makes your classroom unique? What would a classroom full of devices mean to your school? We want to hear from you!

We encourage educators, students, administrators and parents to submit their stories through video, images or text. Tell us what this makeover would mean for your school and how these devices would help your students get excited about learning.


The contest winner will receive a classroom set of TravelMate B117 laptops featuring Windows 10 Pro. (Approximate retail value is $8,099.70.) What makes the TravelMate B117 awesome? With its ultrafast dual-core Intel® processor and up to 12-hour battery life, the TravelMate B117 is built for the classroom and beyond. In addition, the durable TravelMate B117 comes equipped with up to 32 GB memory and advanced HD graphics. The winner will be selected by educational influencer, Steven Anderson and his panel of industry experts.
