Share Your Selfie in #MyClassContest

May 4, 2015

At Edutopia, we’re always talking about how the role of the educator shifts when students have access to powerful computing devices in their pockets. But what happens when the educators themselves have access to powerful computing devices? Among other things -- selfies!

In honor of National Teacher Day, we’re launching a contest. Take a selfie, upload it to Instagram or Twitter, and tag it. Check out this page for the specifics.

Here are some selfies to get you inspired.
