Our Amazingly Awesome Award Winning Afternoon at ISTE

Being honored at the opening of ISTE13 is truly an experience I will never forget.  Gretchen and I were a bit overwhelmed as we walked into the huge convention center filled with row upon row of chairs.  I was flabbergasted to think of even half of them being filled during our award presentation!  My collaborating pal, Matthew Winner, our new friend, Nick Provenzano (aka The Nerdy Teacher), and I decided to capture ALL the moments with several Vine videos and #selfies.

Pictures and videos do speak louder than words, right?  Plus, you'll feel like you were right there with us!  Without further commentary, I present to you our amazingly awesome award winning afternoon!

I love how you can hear Matthew say..."It's...surreal!"

**Notice someone missing?  Mr. Albert Yoo, 3rd grade teacher and Mr. Winner's project partner at his school, was unfortunately unable to make the trip because of some medical issues.  He was sorely missed.**


Many, many thanks again to SIGMS for choosing our Earth Pals project as the Primary Technology Innovation Award winner!  
Such an absolutely incredible honor!

  1. I am so happy for you, I read a great article about this via email and read Matthew's 2 blog posts about your environmental project. I bet the students felt very invested in their learning. You might have planted the seeds for future engineers and teachers.

    Our university installed huge vertical wind turbines this year and I keep telling our school what a great learning opportunity we have before us. Science just gets me all jazzed up. I love it.

    1. Thanks so much! We were amazed how the project continued to grow!

  2. I love this and I also LOVE that you can now embed Vines! Oh my word! The future we're going to have, Ms. Sherry!!!
