It's about Recognition
Each month we'll choose 5 honorees that will have a chance to be recognized in March 2014 at the Computing-Using Educator's Conference as part an #EduWin Session. Check out The Rules for details.
It's not really about you
The caveat about #EduWin- is you can't vote for yourself. This isn't about self-promotion, it's about promoting innovation. It's time to recognize your peers, your students, your neighbor, your Mom, your Aunt Melba. Nominate anyone, just not yourself. Ultimately - this is about taking education forward.
Show us some evidence
When you nominate someone- don't just tell us. Show us. Do you have a picture of this person? A blog post that they did? A video? A project, artifact, news story? Give our judges a little to go on, so they can make a sound decision on #EduWins.

Teachers are superheroes, and it's movements like #EduWin that are finally providing us a means to see some of the magic that is going on in classrooms around the world everyday.
- James Sanders, White House Innovation Fellow, Ed.gov
Every day, great things are happening in classrooms around the world! Unfortunately, most main-stream media organizations focus only on the negative stories. #EduWin is an effort by teachers, students and parents to aggregate all of the great things happening in one location and crowd-source a movement!
-Michael Walker, Technology Specialist, Minneapolis.
#EduWin is an important movement because we need to showcase all the wonderful "wins" happening in our schools daily and promote the positives rather than fixate on the negatives
