Announcing the Digital Innovation in Learning Awards!
EdSurge and Digital Promise have partnered to create the "Digital Innovation in Learning Awards" (DILAs if you prefer a fun acronym). This program will honor powerful examples of innovative teachers, administrators, and ed-tech organizations.
There will be five awards each in three categories: teachers, administrators, and organizations (both for-profit companies and nonprofit organizations). The "Creative Director" award for teachers, for instance, spotlights teachers who are inspiring their students to create high-quality multimedia projects. The Administrator "Open Door Policy" Award will elevate administrators leading the way in collaboration, communication, and sharing their schools' practices with others. And for organizations, the "Mindful Data" Award will celebrate a company or nonprofit that has exemplary data management policies.
All finalists will be invited to the Digital Innovation in Learning Awards Gala in November, co-hosted by EdSurge and Digital Promise and held in Silicon Valley. Travel and accommodation costs will be covered for winners.
You can either nominate yourself or nominate a person or group who inspires you. I'm honored to say that I'll be a board member and judge for these awards. I look forward to seeing many amazing videos and applications soon :)!
