This Week’s Theme- Talent

Lately, we’ve been thinking about all of the talented people (educators and learners) who we have in the EVSC. There are so many showcases, performances, and final projects on display this time of year that it’s hard not to get excited about what folks can do. That’s why this week we hope you will share some photos that capture the many talents of our teachers and students. Whether it is a class project, an extracurricular activity, or just an individual talent, we want to make sure that we include them in our #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.

The main image in this photo was taken in New Orleans. It was then brought into Photofunia, a cool photo enhancement tool. The photo was then cropped and framed in BeFunky. The text elements were added in PicMonkey.

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. #Talent), 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 1000 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.
