Office Depot, Inc. (NYSE: ODP), a leading global provider of school supplies, office products, services, and solutions formed by the merger of Office Depot and OfficeMax, today announced its “Gotta Get It!” teacher campaign in partnership with The Education Center, LLC, publisher of The Mailbox books and magazines. Inspired by educators’ selfless giving, the “Gotta Get It!” campaign will provide free curriculum and educational materials to teachers for the back-to-school season plus a chance to win supplies for the classroom with a $500 Office Depot or OfficeMax gift card.
Every school year, teachers dig deep into their own pockets to purchase supplies for their students. In fact, it is reported that 92 percent of teachers spend $1,000 of their own money every school year to purchase critical classroom resources.1
Teachers can visit TheMailbox.com/teacherrewards, to download free materials that include tips on popular back-to-school topics, ranging from creating a positive learning environment to communicating with parents to managing classroom technology. While on the website, teachers also can sign up for teacher-only discounts and learn more about teacher appreciation events and special giveaways available at Office Depot and OfficeMax stores nationwide in July and August. Additionally, one lucky teacher will win a $500 Office Depot or OfficeMax gift card; six runners-up will each win a $100 Office Depot or OfficeMax gift card. 2The sweepstakes runs through September 30, 2014.

About The Education Center, LLC
The Education Center was founded in 1973 by Marge and Jake Michel who, like many other educators, were frustrated by the lack of practical, ready-to-use materials for the classroom. So they created several products in their spare time, and the company grew from there.
Today hundreds of thousands of teachers across the country depend on The Education Center’s products to enrich their lesson plans, to speed up their planning time, and to leave them more time to do what they love best—teach. Learn more about The Education Center at TheMailbox.com.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
