Many of us use apps like Strava or Runkeeper to track our running, cycling, hiking and walking. A fun trend is to try to make your route into a picture. It requires planning, creativity and physical exercise – and the results are often quite amazing.
We challenge teachers and classes to create workout art with GPS tracking and send them to us. We will show many of them during the conference, on our website and social media.
The best result which demonstrates a combination of artistic creativity and physical exercise will win a prize – and a lot of glory. A jury will discuss and pick out the winner.
The deadline for the competition is 18 September.
Please send your entry to: firstname.lastname@example.org and mark your entry with: Workout art

Watch the video: Outsourcing the classroom
Are we outsourcing the classroom? An increasing number of independent technology suppliers and producers of educational content have entered the education system. Are they a threat to the established system – or an asset that improves the quality of education?
