With less than one week left in the first Interwrite Makeover™ video contest, Interwrite Learning is announcing today the five judges who will evaluate the submitted videos for the contest. The selected judges represent internet communities, education blogs and social networks. You can learn more at http://pattyoflynn.edublogs.org/2007/09/23/interwrite-learning-teachertube-contest/#comments .
Each judge will solicit feedback from within their communities to help them select which videos best meet the contest criteria:
· Effectiveness of demonstrating use of technology in the classroom
· The extent to which the entry demonstrates collaboration between the student(s) and teacher(s) in creating the video
· Overall creativity and spirit of the entry
Fifteen finalists will be announced on Friday, October 26, 2007, and the one final winner from each grade segment will later be announced on Tuesday, November 27, 2007. Each interactive makeover is valued at approximately $15,000, with a total of more than $50,000 in prizes to be awarded. Included in that is a celebration party for each winning entry’s entire school.
