Hilton College needs your vote to win teaching aids for KZN schools

2010-11-26 00:00

HILTON College has entered a global schools competition to produce a music video which — if judged the winning entry — will win for the school digital teaching aids valued at $75 000 (about R528 000).

If they win, the school plans to donate most of these aids to KZN schools that are less fortunate than themselves. You can help make this happen with your vote.

To view and vote for the Hilton College video, visit www.hiltoncollege.com. The site provides a link from which to cast your vote. Voters are advised to use their cellphone numbers as user names to facilitate registration.

Public votes count for 30% of the final score. Voting started November 9 and closes December 2.

eInstruction, a U.S.-based company, annually runs the Global Classroom Make-over Video Competition which receives entries from top notch schools in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia, to name a few.

The competition involves the creation of a music video which demonstrates the use of technology, particularly the eInstruction products.

The Hilton video demonstrates eInstruction’s Classroom Performance System and has made it to the top five in the grade 9 to 12 category. Hilton is also the only non-American school in this category.

Tim Mills, who is a maths teacher at Hilton and the brain behind the music video, described being in the competition as “a bit daunting when considering that they have been doing this for years and we are coming from the tiny yet majestic midlands”.

“Our video is called ‘The ‘e’ of the tiger’. It is a story about technology bringing two different worlds together and bridging the divide between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have nots’, which exists within South African education,” Mills said.


To view the video visit www.hiltoncollege.com. From the same website you’ll access the link on which to cast your votes. Voters are advised to rather use their cellphone or ID numbers as usernames which will make the process easier.

Public vote counts for 30% of the final score. Voting started November 9 and closes December 2.
