This Week’s Theme- New Perspectives

Last Friday, we had the joy of being part of the Google Expeditions Pioneer program at Glenwood Leadership Academy. It was a real gift to see how the power of a new teaching tool or strategy can be harnessed to open students’ eyes to new perspectives. You know those moments. They’re the ones when every kid in the room says “whoa” at the same time. They’re the moments that elicit the question, “When can we do this again?” These moments are among the greatest gifts of our profession.

This week we invite you to share the tools, strategies, lessons, and unscripted moments that lead to you or your students finding new perspectives. Send us pictures from new angles, photos of the things that trigger your a-ha moments, or shots of the artifacts that came from those moments. When we find a new perspective, we add a plot twist to our collective #EVSCstory.

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.

Week 21 Photo Challenge

This photo was created using PicMonkey and Canva. If you would like to know more about this tool 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. #NewPerspective), 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]
