IdahoPTV Digital Innovator Nominations NOW OPEN!
Whether you’re a fellow teacher, a school administrator, a parent or a student, YOU can nominate your favorite classroom changemaker to be the 2023-2024 IdahoPTV Digital Innovator.
The IdahoPTV Digital Innovator program recognizes Idaho teachers who enhance learning by integrating technology or digital media into their classrooms. Each spring IdahoPTV selects one Idaho K-12 educator to serve as Digital Innovator for the following school year.
Do you know an educator who is pushing the boundaries of teaching to better engage their students and enhance learning by integrating technology or digital media into their classroom?
Do you know a teacher who is passionate, bold, and innovative? A classroom changemaker?
If so, please consider nominating that teacher to be the IdahoPTV Digital Innovator. We will be accepting nominees from April 1 - April 28, 2023.
Nominees must be K-12 educators holding a current teaching certificate and currently teaching in an Idaho classroom or working in an Idaho school. They should be education changemakers with a passion for classroom innovation that utilizes technology and/or digital media and should have a desire to share and collaborate with other teachers. If this sounds like someone you know, please nominate them by filling out this form, and include a ONE page nomination letter stating the following:
• How long have you known the educator?
• Why do you think this educator deserves to be the IdahoPTV Digital Innovator?
• What is something innovative this educator is currently doing in their classroom?
The winning Digital Innovator will be announced in May 2023. This teacher will have opportunities to explore new teaching strategies and share their knowledge with other Idaho teachers. Throughout the 2023-2024 school year, the Digital Innovator will partner with IdahoPTV education staff on professional development trainings for teachers around Idaho. They will also receive an expenses-paid trip to the Northwest Council for Computer Education (NCCE) 2024 conference in Seattle as well as a classroom innovation kit from IdahoPTV.
