PBS LearningMedia and The Henry Ford want to honor teachers who use media in new and unique ways to enhance students' learning.
To that end, they're announcing the third annual Teacher Innovator Awards, which recognize pre-kindergarten through 12th grade educators.
Teachers can apply for the awards by submitting a video up to three minutes or a written essay of up to three pages with images. Entries must address how the teachers are using digital media to enhance students' learning by augmenting the traditional textbook approach to teaching.
Thirty educators will receive prizes with the top 10 receiving a professional development prize package for a weeklong, all-expense-paid "Innovation Immersion Experience" at The Henry Ford in Dearborn.
The deadline to apply for the awards is Dec. 12.
