Technology Integration Group and the APS Education Foundation are again sponsoring the Innovation Awards, which honors a district teacher who is advancing education through the use of technology, including the Promethean ActivBoards.

A monthly $2,500 prize will be awarded, and the Foundation will take nominations throughout the year.

In 2012-2013, eight APS teachers won the award. They were: Tom Arnold of Sandia; April Requard of North Star; Lindsey  Bird of Ventana Ranch; Andy Cook of Manzano; Melodie MacDiarmid of Cibola; Krystal Irby of McKinley; Brigid Smith of Atrisco Heritage and Paula Johnson of Valley. All were invited to enjoy an Albuquerque Isotopes game at a suite donated by RayLee Homes: A New Generation in May.

APS teachers with a Promethean board may apply for the award, which includes the opportunity to buy a variety of ActivClassroom interactive tools or training to assist in the classroom.

A $100 cash award also will be provided.

With the award, honorees will be able to select peripherals and publisher materials that will integrate with their existing Promethean ActivBoard. It is hoped that this award will allow honorees to spark even more innovative teaching and learning.

Educators may nominate themselves or their colleagues for the award. A committee will evaluate the nominations and select the winner, who will be honored at a school presentation.

This is the third year of Innovation Awards. TIG also is a key sponsor of the Sept. 20 A is for Art! gala and is a key sponsor of the Horizon Campaign, the Foundation’s successful effort to raise $1 million in private support for Fine Arts, Middle/High School Activities, Literacy and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) programs throughout the district.
