Digital Innovators Program
Educators from across the country are encouraged to enter the 2017 PBS Digital Innovators Program. Entrants are asked to submit a 60- to 180-second “mini-presentation” video to show how they’re using resources from PBS LearningMedia, the free media-on-demand service for classrooms from PBS and the WGBH Educational Foundation, along with digital technology and tools in their classroom, to enhance their teaching and inspire a love of learning in their students. Entrants will also be asked to complete a profile and answer a short essay question. A panel of judges will select one educator from each state throughout the United States, its territories, and the District of Columbia as PBS Digital Innovators. The Digital Innovators will receive a three-day, all-expenses-paid trip to San Antonio, Texas, June 24–26, to participate in the 2017 PBS Digital Innovators Summit and the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) conference. All PBS Digital Innovators will also receive ongoing professional development opportunities, including virtual trainings focused on digital best practices, access to resources from PBS LearningMedia Custom, invitations to special events, a free PBS TeacherLine professional development course, networking opportunities, and more. In addition, PBS Digital Innovators will receive ongoing support from, and opportunities to work with, their local PBS member stations.
Deadline: February 13, 2017, for entries
