Today we are pleased to announce the winners of the GDi for STE(A)M Story Map Contest for Schools.
It was great to see so many entries and the many different interpretations of the the topic ‘My School’. The judges were particularly impressed by the how the Story Maps captured the diversity and beauty of Croatia and its landscape.
Inevitably, the entries prompted much discussion, but a final decision had to be made. Each Story Map was judged ultimately on quality of presentation, creativity, and relevance to the school’s local area.
GDi would like to thank all those that entered the contest for their hard work and enthusiasm.
Individual prize awards:
1st – Ugostiteljsko-turistička škola Osijek
2nd – Srednja škola Prelog
3rd – Gimnazija Andrije Mohorovičića Rijeka
‘Award for Teamwork’
Gimnazija ‘Dr. Ivana Kranjčeva’ from Đurđevac will receive the Esri course and licences, (as first three individual prizes winners). A total of 7 students from the school sent in Story Map entries, and they showed great team effort in creating the Erasmus Story Map.
‘Award for team leadership’
Mihaela Lončar – from School ‘Dr. Ivana Kranjčeva’.
We received some great feedback from Mihaela, who commented:
“The application is great for teaching geography and for students it is fun. While working on the project, they learned a lot of geographic themes, but also gained new skills: teamwork, individual assignments etc. I welcome such initiatives. All in all, a lesson for life! “
