This Week’s Theme- Epic Selfie!

You knew it was just a matter of time. For the week of September 8th-12th, 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.

 

ICATS Photo Challenge- Week 5- Selfie

This week’s Photo Challenge prompt was created with the Awesome and Arty Selfie Pic Booth of Fun – (no longer available), a free iOS app. The graphics were added in Adobe PhotoShop.
 

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 :)
  4. You can share via Google Drive- If social media isn’t your thing, feel free to share your photos directly with us through Google Drive. Use this link to access our shared folder. You will need to then click the blue Open in Drive button. Then drag your photo into the window, or click the red upload arrow in the upper-left to search for your photo and click Open. It would help us if you would name your photo with the week’s theme and your name and school.

Final Thoughts

As always, thank you to those of you who have been sharing your #EVSCstory with us. Each photo is a great reminder of the important work that educators and learners do everyday. We have collected more than 200 photos since the beginning of the ICATS Photo Challenge. Looking ahead, next week we are going to incorporate the Photo Challenge into our celebration of Dot Day.
