Introducing the 1st Annual
What is a Techie Award?
A Techie Award recognizes accomplishments in digital learning and technology integration in districts across Region 7.
What are the Techie Award categories?
The following Techie Awards will be presented at iPadpaloozaEastTX on June 15, 2017:
- Best Alternative to a PowerPoint – Have you moved beyond PowerPoint to present information to your audience? With so many digital presentation tools available today, there are many PowerPoint alternatives you can use to get your point across while also keeping your audience engaged! Share your favorite!
- Most Apps Smashed into One Project – One app, two apps, three apps, four! Put them all together and your project becomes much more! Show off an example of a project you have designed that smashes apps together for one great product!
- Best Animated Lesson – Let your creativity flow and show off your animation skills! Submit an animated video you have created to present a topic or lesson! Any type of animation program or software may be used.
- Most Instructional Videos on a Teacher’s Education YouTube Channel – Got teacher videos? Got a LOT of teacher videos? Get them on a YouTube channel (if they aren’t already) and get recognized! Please note: Only YouTube channels created with a district email address and for education purposes are eligible for this award.
- Best Original Teacher Film – Put your video-making skills to work! Every submission must include the following:
- An image/replica of an Oscar (as in The Academy Awards)
- A famous line from a movie (you will have to provide the name of the movie with your submission)
- Video cannot exceed 5 minutes in length. Video purpose is up to you! (Lesson, advertisement for school event, etc.)
- Best Original Student Film – Students must comply with the same rules as the Teacher Film, with one exception: The video must be a public service announcement (PSA). This must be a real PSA- not a fake one!
