Are you interested in travelling the world and being recognized as one of the most innovative teachers on earth?
The Microsoft Innovative Teachers Awards are now open to all teachers in Australia, and believe me when I say it – this is one program you don’t want to miss out on.
This is an award for teachers who demonstrate great pedagogy incorporating technology. It’s not about how technical you are, it’s about how creatively you use technology to allow students to learn things in ways they couldn’t learn before. You can register yourself, or register a colleague or friend.
Visit www.microsoft.com.au/innovativeteacher to register. It doesn’t take long, and could see you travelling the world and meeting other Innovative teachers from across the planet.
Last year, all the State winners met in Darwin, then Singapore, to compete for the national award. Simone Timms (Durak State School) won the national award and will be travelling to South Africa to compete for the worldwide Innovative Teacher Award.
The 2009 Worldwide Award went to Mark Sparvell from Kadina Primary School – and he’s not the first Australian to win it since 2004.
