Back by popular demand, PBS LearningMedia is thrilled to announce the launch of the 2015 PBS LearningMedia Digital Innovators program, a unique opportunity for your station to connect with and reward tech-savvy K-12 educators who are embracing digital learning!
Applications will be accepted from educators between 12/3/14 and 2/11/15. 100 educators will be selected to join the program, including 30 who will be named Lead PBS LearningMedia Digital Innovators. Educator benefits include: building a relationship with their local PBS station; one year of FREE PD including virtual trainings and events; speaking opportunities; membership into a robust professional learning community; and an all-expense paid two-day trip to a digital summit in Philadelphia, PA preceding the ISTE conference for the Lead PBS Digital Innovators including a one-day pass to ISTE, making this year’s program bigger and better than before. Stations with a Lead PBS Digital Innovator will also be invited to the summit in Philadelphia. PBS will cover all expenses for the educators and, for stations, PBS will pay for all meals, PD sessions and events. We will ask stations to cover their own individual travel and lodging expenses. The materials below have been created to help you leverage this exciting program.
