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.
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.
The Innovation Award resumed in September and the first 2012-13 recipient was Paula Johnson of Valley High School. Teachers who were nominated in the 2011-2012 school year also will be eligible to win the award this year.
The Innovation Award is the latest donation to the Foundation from TIG, which is the title sponsor for this year’s A is for Art! fundraiser and also is a key sponsor of the Horizon Campaign, the Foundation’s push 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.
