Activity-Event

We have an Ed Tech Crew Challenge - Video to celebrate education and classroom work
See this video (Brian & Eileen's Wedding Music Video) http://vimeo.com/1531870
we see these video’s all the time but where are the videos celebrating our learning.

We want our listeners and their colleagues, peers and students to plan out a video clip to celebrate using ICT in education. You don’t need to shoot the clip just plan it - you can shoot it.  Think outside the box - behind the box on top of the box or just forget the box and be creative and different. Spread the Word!

Length - less than 5 minutes
Subject - Celebrating our learning and use of ICT in Education
Prizes - there will be some - we will even arrange to help shoot the video clip with the winning entry
