Calling all Classroom Changemakers! Are you a PBS Digital Innovator?

PBS Digital Innovators set the bar for thoughtful tech integration in the classroom. These K-12 educators are not defined by the gadgets they use, but by the unique way they approach education. Their bold and enthusiastic perspectives set them apart as changemakers, and unlock new worlds for their students.

PBS and WFYI are always looking for educators who love what they do, and who have found creative and thoughtful ways to integrate technology and digital media into their instruction. These educators are born leaders, inspiring both their students and their peers. Most importantly, they make learning fun and accessible to all students.

What do Digital Innovators receive?

  • Professional Development

  • Public Platform

  • Peer Networking

Congrats to 2017 Digital Innovator, Josie McKay!

Josephine's (Josie) classroom extends far beyond her four walls.  Using discussion boards, social networks, virtual field trips, and other communication channels, Josie’s students learn from and share their own ideas with people from across the United States and around the world.  She says her favorite way to make learning meaningful is to encourage her students to choose their method of creating, (i.e. Powtoons, green screen video, storyboards etc.) and then present to the class. She collaborates and shares ideas with other educators on Twitter, saying, “I like to share tidbits of what I'm doing on Twitter so that other educators may become inspired to try something new.”
