Being able to offer you a chance to win tech tools delights me & Texas Instruments TI-Nspire CX Graphing Calculator is one very cool school tool! I recently attended a great Texas Instruments event at Blogher12 & got hands on time with the innovative, feature rich, TI-Nspire. This device sports a 320 x 240 pixel bright, color back lit display, in a thin, sleek design. Nspire comes equipped with it’s own rechargeable battery. The software bundle included with this unit allows the student to transfer work from the device to a PC or Mac so assignments can be completed literally from anywhere.

Of Special Interest to Educators
The Nspire can also be equipped with a special USB WiFi hat via the TI-Nspire™ Navigator™ System. My breakfast group at Blogher was able to engage in interactive learning & collaborative activity, that demonstrated the teacher’s ability to quickly assign a problem, assess students as they worked it through & assist students who were struggling. And yes, I did stick the EasyTemp temperature sensor probe into my coffee:)
Texas Instruments is also running a contest over on their Facebook page, you could win great TI Tech gear for your classroom & a visit from The Big Bang Theory star Mayem Bialik.
