PBS Digital Innovator Program

It has been such an honor to be one of the 100 teachers in America selected to participate in the 2014 PBS Digital Innovator program. I have had the pleasure of networking with some of the country's most innovative and imaginative teachers through social media platforms such as Edmodo, Twitter and Voxer. I also have learned to use amazing new tools during FREE monthly webinars about cutting edge practices in technology education. The greatest tool I have learned to implement into my daily lessons is the PBS Learning Media site. This website has over 87,000 resources for K-12 teachers covering all areas of content. I find something new and exciting each time I log in!

I was feeling disappointed that my year with the Digital Innovator program would come to a close in a few months but thankfully, once a Digital Innovator, always a Digital innovator! I get to continue the learning as an alumni and help future DI teachers spread the word about PBS resources! If you would like to join me in a professional development program like no other consider applying to be a part of the 2015 PBS Digital Innovator program.
