Innovate? Sign up!

Screen Shot 2015-12-27 at 1.17.07 PMLast year, I became a PBS Digital Innovator.

I still have a few months to go, but I’ve found it difficult to get people who are not already on board to jump into integrating technology.

Perhaps it’s all the initiatives teachers have to deal with that makes them so busy.

I offered professional development at both my schools, and the ripples that I got in response were truly minimal.

But particularly for ELL students, integration can mean the difference between participation and isolation. Providing pictures, visual models, articles with reduced context… it’s so helpful.

So I encourage you, if you are already a bit tech included to apply to be your state’s next PBS Digital Innovator. Deadlines are fast approaching. And you get some very cool support from PBS.
