This Week’s Theme- Be SUPER

Be SUPER featured imageThis week, the ICATS are kicking off our Digital Citizenship Reboot to align with Digital Citizenship Week. Our goal for the year is to raise awareness around 5 Core Values that can help our students be better citizens in the Digital Age. Our acronym for those values is SUPER (hence the theme this week). You can learn more about the Be SUPER Campaign on this page.

In the meantime, we’d love to see pictures that show how you and your students are Safe, Understanding, Polite, E-Healthy, and Responsible in the Digital Age. Send us photos related to how you promote good digital citizenship, photos of students learning effectively in digital environments, or photos of great examples of Digital Citizenship.

NOTE: You absolutely DO NOT have to match the theme to share a picture with us. Feel free to share any photo that helps us tell the #EVSCstory at ANY time.

Digital Citizen Photo Challenge2

This photo was created using Canva. They have an amazing library of graphics for a very reasonable price. You can also create in Canva for free. The text was added using PicMonkey, another great photo tool. If you would like to know more about these tools or about photo editing, contact the ICATS.

How to Share Your Photos

There are four ways that you can share the photos that you take with us:

  1. You can share via Instagram – Simply post your Instagram photos using the hashtag #EVSCstory. Feel free to add other hashtags as well to indicate the theme (e.g. #BeSUPER), or add more information to the caption to help tell the story.
  2. You can share via Twitter – Post your photos to Twitter using the hashtag #EVSCstory. Again, we invite you to add other hashtags, including some of our EVSC hashtags like #evscchat. You can also include our Twitter handle (@evscicats) to ensure we see your pictures as soon as you post.
  3. You can share via Facebook – Visit our ICATS Facebook page, click the Message button in the upper-right corner, and in the text of the message give us your name, school, and the theme for the week. Be sure to attach the photo by clicking the Add Files button. While you are there, we’d love it if you liked our page :) OR, simply share your image on your own Facebook feed, and include the #EVSCstory hashtag.
  4. You can share via email – If social media isn’t your thing, feel free to share your photos directly with us through email. Just attach your photos to an email and send them to [email protected]

How to Check Out the Photos

After each week’s challenge, we will post a link to the archive of the week’s photos here. Follow the link, and enjoy the story that unfolds!

Final Thoughts

Part of being a SUPER digital citizen is maintaining a positive presence online. When you contribute to the #EVSCstory, you help to tell a great story, and you also model the way we hope our students will contribute to the online world in the future. We’ve collected some great photos so far this year! Keep them coming, and invite your colleagues to contribute as well.
