The Magical Ability To Share Sound

The Magical Ability To Share Sound

We have an unprecedented ability to record ourselves and our students, and share our ideas. When you stop and think about this, it is amazing. Amazing! We should be sharing our voices and our students’ voices more because we can, because it’s easy, and because it’s transformative.ground-control

The #EduWin Awards (and Share Your Own!)

The #EduWin Awards (and Share Your Own!)

Last Spring I help launch the EduWin Awards. We got a few sponsors–EdReach, CUE, PBS News Hour, and Getting Smart–and created a way to shine the light on eduawesome things happening in classrooms around the world. So what is an EduWin, you ask? Well:

An #EduWin is a moment in education that should be celebrated. A project, a teachable moment, a breakthrough, a video, or simply- a helping hand.

We think that the people responsible for taking education forward- should be recognized, so we’ve created: The #EduWin Awards.

There are amazing moments, people, technologies, and situations that everyone should know about. These amazing things are happening all over the world. What have you seen?

At the Annual CUE Conference, Elizabeth Calhoon and Mike Lawrence¬†joined me for the Inaugural #EduWin Awards, where we celebrated the honorees from the past¬†year. While we gear up for the upcoming school year, it seemed like a good time to share last year’s nominees, and look forward as we begin a new year of sharing moments in the classroom that are eduwins.
