This Week’s Theme- Joy!

For the week of September 2nd-5th, we are looking for photos that capture the moments of joy that are an educator’s richest reward. Sometimes the kind gesture of a co-worker, the gratitude of a student, or the magic of an a-ha moment can be the gift we need to move everything in a positive direction. Educators have access to these joyous moments every day, and being mindful of them now gives us the energy and inspiration to create more of them in the future. We hope this week’s theme will inspire you to capture and share the joy of your #evscstory.

 

ICATS Photo Challenge- week 4- Joy-pixlr

This week’s photo was captured from a video using the SnagIt Chrome Extension and was edited in Pixlr Express from Autodesk.  

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. #Joy), 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

Thanks to everyone who has been helping to tell the #EVSCstory! Last week’s photos were great, and we intend to revisit the Extra-curricular theme a few different times this year, so that we can capture the different activities throughout the school-year. To date we have collected more than 180 fantastic photos, and the #evscstory grows with each submission. We can’t wait to see the moments that bring you joy:)  Keep the photos coming!
