I was named a PBS Digital Innovator for the 2014-15 school year. I did not use it to the best of my ability. I tried. But I just am not much of a firebrand sometimes. I got a one-year subscription to PBS LearningMedia for both of my schools. But only six people took me up on it.
Such a shame. See? Not a firebrand. Can’t get people to follow me even when I’m giving stuff away.
I have only 47 followers on my blog, for example. I’ve been keeping this blog for a really long time.
But perhaps I might be reaching the right people to spread the word about the Digital Innovator gig. It is getting better.
PBS chooses one person from each state to participate in professional development and to give free stuff to. And next year, they will take all of the state representatives to San Antonio to go to the ISTE conference. Now that’s something. Much more than I was offered.
So if you are an innovator in your classroom, I urge you to try. What have you got to lose?
