About the Digital Innovator Program

IdahoPTV is dedicated to supporting teachers throughout the state and fostering collaboration between teachers.  One way we do this is by highlighting teachers who are doing amazing things in their classrooms. Our Digital Innovator program recognizes teachers who are pushing the boundaries of teaching to better engage their students and enhance learning by integrating technology or digital media into their classrooms. Each year we will select one Idaho Digital Innovator and offer them opportunities to explore new teaching strategies and connect with other Idaho teachers.
