GMSD teacher to join the ranks of PBS LearningMedia Digital Innovators

The PBS LearningMedia Digital Innovators program recognizes educators nationwide who are incorporating digital media in classrooms and serving as leaders in educational technology.

This diverse group of 100 tech-savvy educators from across the country was selected for their passion and commitment to innovative teaching practices that integrate digital media and technology in the classroom.

Representing GMSD, fourth grade Dogwood Elementary School teacher, Amy Brownlee, has been named as a 2016-2017 Innovator. 

According to the PBS Website:

"Over the course of the 2016/2017 school year, PBS LearningMedia Digital Innovators will be part of a robust professional learning community that will foster new ways of thinking, while leading the way in using technology to drive student achievement. 54 applicants, one from each US state and territory, will be designated as Lead PBS LearningMedia Digital Innovators and will also receive a three day, all-expense paid trip to Denver, CO to participate in the PBS LearningMedia Digital Innovators Summit and the prestigious ISTE Conference from June 25-27, 2016. Plus, each Lead PBS Digital Innovator will receive a Samsung Galaxy® tablet."

How do I apply? It’s easy! Create a 1-2 minute video and answer two questions. Don’t worry, the company specifies that the video isn’t judged on technical perfection. They suggest that a quick video from a cell phone or an edited video can get the job done.
