There are two parts to the competition, and you can enter both or just one.
Part 1: Drones are Cool - A two minute maximum video, submitted via YouTube, VIMEO, or another online sharing option. This video should show some creativity and student flair on how drones are being used in your school, why they are a tool for the future, what problems they could solve.... the options are endless. We want to see how BIG your school is thinking with your students on the use of drones.
Videos will be judged on the depth of problem solving, creativity and expression, and communication of the key messages.
Part 2: Shade is Cool - In the Map My School Teacher PD there are several guiding questions that we encourage teachers to work through with their students. Through this process, students will be developing their geographic inquiry skills.
We want a two minute maximum video, submitted via YouTube, VIMEO or another online sharing option, showing the process that your students have gone through and either, where they believe more shade should be placed in the school OR if the school already has enough shade, why they think this is the case.
Videos will be judged on the depth of geographical inquiry, creativity and expression, and communication of the key messages.
We understand that some schools won't have drones in their schools or some schools won't do the mapping part.
The mapping component is designed to be done with freely available software (to schools) and data (provided within the software).
You can enter one part of the competition or both, your choice.
