SMART CLASSROOMS - Quest to find our smartest ICT teachers
Last year's Smart Classrooms Teacher Award winners. Nominate now for your chance to be among this year's winners.
The search is on again for Queensland teachers who are using information and communication technology in exciting and innovative ways.
Nominations are now open in this year's Smart Classrooms Teacher Awards with some great prizes on offer.
Now in its ninth year, the Department of Education and Training awards program recognises teachers for their use of ICT to engage and educate students.
Director of the eLearning Branch, Laurie Campbell, said all teachers who have, or are working towards, their ICT Pedagogical Licence (soon be to known as Digital Pedagogy Licence) can enter the awards.
'We know there are many Queensland teachers doing amazing things with digital pedagogy in the classroom,' Mr Campbell said.
'At present we have more than 1800 licence or advanced licence holders. Every one of these teachers, and the many more working towards accreditation, are eligible to enter.'
Nominations for this year's awards close on June 12 with winners to be announced at a formal event in September. Teachers can nominate themselves or a colleague.
Award winners will receive $5000 to use towards attending ICT-related professional development or undertaking research projects or research studies.
Winners will also attend the 2009 eLearning Innovation Expo and an intensive two-day Award Winners Master Class in Brisbane later in the year.For more information about the awards, visit the website.
