This Week’s Theme- Throwback

Inspired by Throwback Thursdays on social media, we thought it would be fun to share some photos that look backward into our history as learners and educators. We all have photos from our early years as teachers (or even earlier years as students), so take a moment to dig around in the archives and share with us some oldies but goodies. Where we came from is definitely part of our #EVSCstory, and we want to preserve those memories even as we make new ones!

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.

This photo was taken by a well-meaning school photographer at Oak Hill School in 1975. He didn’t have a lot to work with. It has since been edited in BeFunky, an excellent online photo editor. To learn more about BeFunky, check out this post.

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. #Throwback), 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 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.

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 takes a team to tell the #EVSCstory!  To date we have collected more than 950 fantastic photos, and we can’t wait to add this week’s batch to the mix! We would appreciate your help in growing this project. Please consider sharing the project with your colleagues. Also, we hope you will feel free to continue to tell your part of the #EVSCstory at any time, simply by sharing the great photos that you take as you go about your day.
