Digital Innovators

Long, long ago, the chalkboard arrived as an innovative new tool for classroom instruction. Undoubtedly some teachers balked. Others, however, saw the potential benefits a board offered their students and became the first to learn how not to screech chalk, and always clap erasers outside the window.

If you’re one of those teachers who’s still embracing what’s new in education technology, the good folks at PBS would like to invite you to apply to the 2015 PBS LearningMedia Digital Innovators Program, a yearlong professional development opportunity designed to “reward, foster and grow a community of 100 tech-savvy educators making an impact in their classrooms.”

Application to the program is easy, and selected teachers will enjoy a host of benefits including access to exclusive virtual trainings and resources, as well as a shot at a three day, all-expense paid trip to Philadelphia to participate in the PBS LearningMedia Digital Innovators Summit and the prestigious ISTE Conference in late June, 2015.

The deadline for application is February 11, 2015, so get started!

PBS LearningMedia is the destination for free PreK-12 digital classroom content.
