Teachers’ Day – Celebrating our Teachers

Teachers play a crucial role in shaping young lives and inspiring students to achieve their goals. Celebrating Teachers’ Day is a great way to honour and show appreciation for the hard work and dedication of teachers. Students are challenged to create a digital “Thank You” for their teacher/s who have inspired them using an app or platform of their choice. The teacher’s name and school needs to be featured in this project.

Judging Criteria

  1. All projects should be of a high quality (minimal errors; project thoroughly edited; clear sound quality and camera work)
  2. Integration of challenge across curricula areas is encouraged
  3. Apple technology has been used effectively (made full use of the different elements of the app, and the features of the device – Mac, iPad etc)
  4. Message and learning outcome could not have been communicated effectively without Apple technology (redefinition rather than substitution)
  5. Students may submit either a video (max 4 min), eBook (max 20 pages), interactive presentation (max 10 slides) or song (own composition, max 2 min) to best meet the challenge
