Matthew sent me the following email, so I thought I’d share it and the information about this Teacher Award Program! Please pass it on to folks are may be interested.
I know you don’t know me, but I have been following your blog for a few year and I thought you might be interested in this information.
I am writing to let you know about an exciting opportunity available for teachers. I am assisting with an award program at IU that is looking for exemplary teachers. See below for more info:
The Jacobs Educator Award is supported by the Barbara B. Jacobs Chair in Education and Technology to recognize K-12 teachers across the United States who are using technology to support innovative inquiry-based teaching and learning activities in their classrooms. Each year a small group of exceptional K-12 teachers are selected who are at the cutting edge of integrating digital technologies into their instruction.
Each selected Jacobs Educator will receive:
- $1500 stipend at the end of their one-year appointment,
- $1000 to be used to purchase technology resources to support their teaching,
- Funds to support travel to Indiana University in order to participate in periodic events throughout the year.
I was wondering if you could help distribute this through your contacts. I attached a PDF announcement. It is a really great opportunity for teachers!
