Three things you must know about our newsletter

  1. You are receiving this newsletter because you subscribed to the Intel Teachers Engage online community newsletter.
  2. This is a new format that will be emailed directly to our subscribers approximately once a month and archived in the community section Newsletter. This is different than the one sent automatically that is dependent on your preferences chosen in your profile. 
  3. To receive special announcements, click “receive email notifications” for our newsletter blog so you can be notified instantly when there is a special promotion (i.e. our famous Intel yard sales) or timely discussion or resource that needs to be shared.

Incentivized Participation

To bring focus to certain areas of the community, drawings are conducted for people who participate in our “bunny threads”   Community members that contribute to those discussions and documents will have their name entered into a drawing for various technology tools and gadgets.  Look for the Intel BunnyPeople™ as they note the incentivized areas.
