At TXGoo 2017 in May I gave away some stuffed unicorns as door prizes because I taught my Google Forms: Automated Awesomeness class. I had no idea they’d be so popular or lead to a world tour. Kimberly McCorkle won the purple unicorn and, since she’s a geography teacher, decided to take the unicorn with her on her summer trip to Iceland and England! She started tweeting me pictures and #unicornworldtour was born!
Our unicorn was KIDNAPPED in Reykjavik, Iceland by a TROLL!
But never fear…he was rescued and ready to pose for more photos on the trip!
I just couldn’t resist plotting the trips for her students on a map…so she could share it with them in the fall! Here’s the map – https://goo.gl/BWJzZH
And of course, I blogged about it on our BISD Learn Tech website – http://bisdlearntech.com/unicornworldtour-oh-yeah-its-on/ And now the unicorn (who will get a name chosen by her students in the fall) will have a traveling companion thanks to the guys at Pear Deck.
I love my job and I love that twitter and a tech conference helped me find someone as whimsical and fun as Kimberly!
