PBS LearningMedia and The Henry Ford today announced the third annual Teacher Innovator Awards, recognizing PreK-12 educators using media in unique ways to enhance students’ learning.
Teachers can apply for the Teacher Innovator Awards by submitting a video up to 3 minutes in length or a written essay, up to three pages with images. Entries must address how they are using digital media to enhance students’ learning by augmenting the traditional textbook approach to teaching. Thirty educators in total will receive prizes for their outstanding work with the top 10 winners receiving a professional development prize package for a week-long, all-expense-paid "Innovation Immersion Experience" at The Henry Ford in Dearborn, Michigan, and a PBS TeacherLine course. The deadline to apply for the awards is December 12, 2012.
