Dr. Scott Mcleod (over at Dangerously Irrelevant) and I have selected a winner for the button contest Scott announced back in April. That button and contest idea was inspired by my April 16th post and book title claim, “Here For The Learning Revolution.” The winning design was created by Bill Moseley:
If you visit Bill’s website, you’ll note he’s a proud Nebraska Cornhusker. It’s great to add Bill to my personal list of creative educational technology leaders I know who are in or have come from (educationally) the Husker state! Eric Langhorst, Paul Clark, and Dan Schmidt are already on my own “creative edtech Husker” list!
In addition to the awards Scott announced for Bill:
..everlasting fame, a CASTLE mug, one of the buttons, a t-shirt with his design on it, a picture of a monster from my [Scott's] 4-year-old (Colin’s the one with the curly hair), and a copy of Here Comes Everybody by Clay Shirky…
I’d like to add to that list of prizes a new iPod shuffle in a color of Bill’s choice, and a free subscription to my podcast channel, “Moving at the Speed of Creativity.” (The podcast subscription is, of course, actually available free to anyone, so that may not be a big deal to Bill, but I’m guessing the iPod shuffle will be a welcome addition to his personal electronic learning toolkit!)
Bill: Please note this cute dog is NOT included in your prize package. The iPod shuffle IS, however.
Thanks to everyone who entered the contest and participated. The learning revolution is here, and we are the minutemen and minutewomen. We are the catalysts for constructive educational change and systemic school reform in our local communities. We are the change. Thanks to Bill Moseley for creating and sharing a logo which will give a graphic “face” to our distributed efforts to transform educational institutions into the responsive, transparent, collaborative, learning-focused environments they need to become in the 21st century.
If you want a button and are not attending NECC 2008 and Edubloggercon 2008, Scott has offered to send you a button if you email him. Are you sure you’re ready for that many emails, Scott?!
