Digital Promise believes that in order for innovation to spread in education, we first have to elevate the visibility of where it’s already in practice.
To that end, they’ve partnered with EdSurge to celebrate the leadership and work of teachers, administrators, and organizations with the 2014 Digital Innovation in Learning Awards (DILA). More than 550 people submitted a three-minute video demonstrating their practice for awards in categories like Busting Boundaries, “Power to the People,” and Research@Work. The seventeen winners selected, including Educator Innovator partner Common Sense Media, show that technology is being used to engage and inspire learning every single day. Winners will be further celebrated at a November awards gala in Silicon Valley.
