Live and eLearn – WebChallenge 2010!

January 28, 2010

 
Attention Georgia math, science and technology educators:
It’s time to assemble your teams for the 2010 WebChallenge. The Technology Association of Georgia Education Collaborative (TAG EC) is once again challenging high-school students to work in a team environment to develop a web-based application that makes a difference in their community.
 
Last year’s winning students earned $21,000 in college scholarships—and their schools received extensive recognition statewide.
ALL students participating learned teamwork skills, and gained valuable technical knowledge. This competitive forum is a great way to get your students involved in a real-life development experience—and to help meet our state’s STEM education goals.
 
Here’s what you need to know about the 2010 WebChallenge:
 
Theme:
This year’s theme is Live and eLearn! Students will develop an application that helps other students learn about science, math and technology.
 
Resources:
Your 2010 WebChallenge team will have free access to business eLearning technologies (appropriate to the age group of participants).
Free instructional design support will be available to facilitate the application of these technologies.
Consultation will also be available on a no-cost basis—more than 30 technology companies and corporate eLearning departments have volunteered their time.
 
Criteria:
Teams must employ original content in the areas of math, science and an open topic, using technology referenced above, as well as other commonly available technologies (i.e. PowerPoint, social media, cell phones and other mobile devices).
Teams will be judged based on learning outcomes. The effectiveness of their eLearning solution must be measurably demonstrated.
Judges from the technology and eLearning community in Georgia will select winners.
