Elaine Plybon, blog coordinator for the Texas DEN Leadership Council, needs YOU! The Irving Independent School District in Irving, Texas, for which she works, hosts an annual Technology Media Fair. This year, the district has opened up several categories for online judging. The hope, above all, is that involving you as judges will keep the students excited about technology and sharing their work with a global audience. This is where you come in. The contest needs judges. Anyone who has an interest in technology in education is qualified to be a judge. All the projects can be judged beginning now through January 7, 2008.
There are six categories and levels from K-12. Anyone who chooses to judge may evaluate as many or few entries as they wish. Would YOU consider helping with this cause? You can volunteer to be a judge and you can also share the word with other education professionals through your own blogs, twitters, feeds, and other social networking venues.
To judge the projects, click here, then click on the judging link. Please include your name and email address. Your email address will not be published. Your information will be used for security only. If you choose to help, please expect an email from administrative staff confirming that the address listed next to you name is a valid email address.
Let’s see if we can help spread the word and help students in their global outreach.
