We’re excited to announce that we are sponsoring Edcamp Colorado.

If you’re not familiar with the brilliant Edcamp movement, here’s a quick overview.

Edcamp promotes organic, participant-driven professional development for educators worldwide.  The Edcamp mission is to support a network of free Edcamp ‘unconferences’ for education professionals to share ideas and learn together.

We are really excited to partner with the lovely people form Edcamp Colorado and encourage you to head along to an Edcamp as soon as you get the chance.

 


In March we launched a competition for students to create a one-page slidebook all about their favourite historical figure. Students downloaded their slides and sent them to us.

We were really impressed with the effort and creativity that students put into their slides. You can see all the entries here on the competition Pinterest board.

The competition winner was a middle school student from Garden City Public Schools, Kansas, USA. The slide he created was about the famous Wyatt Earp.

We loved the use of historical information, the great choice of photographs, but most of all, the thought and effort that went in to the use of colour, layout, and typography.  It really made the slidebook feel that it was from the same period as Wyatt Earp.

We mailed the canvas to our deserving winner – and here he is, looking very happy with his classmates and teachers.

Well done!
