Scarborough High School Teacher Receives Lenovo’s Visionary Teacher Award
Markham, ONT, February 7, 2019 – In a surprise ceremony held in Scarborough, Ontario, Lenovo announced the winner of its first-ever Visionary Teachers Contest. Jean Vanier Catholic Secondary School teacher, Nicholas McCowan, won a 10-pack Lenovo Virtual Reality Classroom kit for his inspiring submission that focused on ways the technology can offer enhanced learning opportunities and support the cultural diversity of his students.
As part of the Lenovo Visionary Teachers Contest, teachers across Ontario were asked to share a written submission explaining how Virtual Reality (VR) would help elevate their teaching and the importance this new technology has in the classroom.
Over 140 entries from across Ontario were reviewed, and it was Scarborough’s Nicholas McCowan whose submission captured one of the genuine benefits VR technology can offer teachers and students.
