I know that for the most part I normally post about SL events in this blog.
Here’s an exception to the rule…’cause it’s a REALLY wonderful opportunity to show students how far their reach really is in this digital age.
Elaine Plybon (you know her as Celestia Cazelet) shared this information:
I work for a technology-rich school district (Irving Independent School District in Irving, Texas). Each year, we host a “Media Fair”, which is normally judged locally. This year, the district has decided to open judging to anyone who has an internet connection and an interest in technology in education! Would it be possible for you to send out a request for the bloggers to post the attached invitation to judge and/or a blurb on their blog directing people to the judging link? Our students would be so excited to get feedback from all over the country and even the world, so people are encouraged to forward the judging information on through their own blogs, etc. It is easy to judge, simply follow the link and judge as many or as few as desired. Entries have several categories and range from K through 12 levels.
To judge the projects, go to http://www.irvingisd.net/mediafaironline and click on the judging link. When judging, please include your name and email address. Your email address will not be published. It will be used for security only. Please expect an email from our administrative staff confirming that the address listed next to your name is a valid email address.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE (that’s Laelia begging! LOL) take a moment out of your schedule to visit the link. You don’t have to judge EVERY entry (although there’s nothing and noone stopping you from doing so! LOL) so the time commitment is minimal, but the return is MAXIMAL (yes, I know that’s not a word, but it suited my purpose and right now I control the keyboard! LOL).
