The Great Create Contest

The world is more interconnected than ever. The days of imparting knowledge from the front of the classroom are over. This means that the impact of the students on you matters as much as yours on them.

We want you to express this interconnectivity through an artistic expression of your choice. Draw a picture, sing a song, shoot a short film, make a sculpture, write a poem, or any other medium that demonstrates the impact of your students.

The winner will win free airfare, hotel accommodations, and admission to the ISTE conference in Chicago June 24–27, 2018. Finalists will win VIP entry to Ed Tech Karaoke.
