Get your keyboards ready, because the vast majority of you reading this blog owe it to yourselves to apply for this award! Every year, Cable in the Classroom hosts the Leaders in Learning Awards. This year, there is a specific category that seems like it was tailor made for STAR Discovery Educators. It’s the “Pushing the Envelope with Cable Technology and Programming” and the description reads “Awards in this category will be given to leaders who push the envelope and/or redefine the education frontier through the use of cable technology and cable content. Applicants are expected to demonstrate how their vision, action and innovation had a significant impact on learning.”
I could probably name a couple hundred DEN members who are doing this off the top of my head! This is a wonderful opportunity to share with the world the incredibly innovative ways that you’re making a difference in education. Don’t be bashful, be proud of what you’re doing and share it with the world!
If you’re interested, visit the Leaders In Learning webiste and apply soon! Deadline is January 16th, and with all the holidays, it feels like it’s approaching quickly.
