#PEPics: 2014 Edition

It’s that time of the year again!

Get your cameras ready, because the #PEPics photo/video challenge is back in action!

If you’ve never heard of the #PEPics challenge before, let me break it down for you real quick:

Throughout the month of April, you will be invited to share pictures/videos via social media using the #PEPics hashtag. Each day in April is assigned a theme word to help inspire your inner photographer/videographer. The theme words are very vague, and that’s done on purpose: we want you to be as creative as possible with each of your entries! Here’s the calendar (we will be tweeting out each day’s theme word, so don’t worry if you forget to check here).

At the end of the month, Mike and I will go through our favourite #PEPics submissions and create a free, downloadable resource out of them (*cough* it’s a Team #PhysEd Calendar *cough*). The final resource will serve as a tool to help promote the people who participated in the challenge and help get the word out about the #physed community.

A few things to think about before you get started:

  • Don’t worry if you miss a day (I’m looking at you #STLOUIS2014 attendees and teachers on Spring Break), you can always go back and submit an entry for a theme word you missed.
  • Regardless of what social network you submit your entries to (we suggest Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Vine, and/or Google+), be sure that your entries are public and include the #PEPics hashtag (including the theme word would be nice).
  • Although we will ask your permission if we decide to include your entry in the final resource, make sure that you have your students’ (and their parents’) permission before sharing any pictures of them online.

So that’s it! Have fun with it, be creative, and be sure to follow the #PEPics hashtag on all of your favourite social networks to see what great photos/videos the rest of Team #PhysEd are sharing!

Thanks for reading, and happy teaching!
