This Week’s Theme- Selfie

You knew it was just a matter of time. This week we are looking inward for our photo challenge. In recent years, the Selfie has become a favorite art form for the Digital Age. Capturing ourselves the way we want to be seen in the environments that we love is an opportunity to express ourselves that is hard to resist.
We would love for you to send us photos that capture the essence of you as an educator, you as a person, and you as a learner. Feel free to send us group selfies, class selfies, team selfies, and solo selfies. Show us what your world and work look like from the perspective of an arm’s length away. Serious or silly, your Selfies are an important part of the #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 5 Photo Challenge

This photo was shot using the iOS app Bestme which is also available for Android. It was then edited in Canva, a great web tool for visual design. If you would like to know more about digital 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. #Selfie), 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

It’s important to remember that we are all important characters in the #EVSCstory. While the story is shared, it’s our unique perspectives and experiences that make up the story. The more people whose point of view we see, the richer our understanding is. Still, celebrating what is uniquely us is something that we should take time to do. We hope you will invite others to share their part of the #EVSCstory and help us add to the more than 200 photos we’ve already collected. Can’t wait to see your shining faces this week :)
