EdSurge and Digital Promise are delighted to announce the first
annual Digital Innovation in Learning Awards! These awards aim to
spotlight great practices in education--and to share those practices
with others. And we hope that you will help us scout some great
talent by 1) applying or 2) nominating people and/or organizations
you respect for these special awards.
Teachers, administrators, and organizations (both for-profit
companies and nonprofit organizations) are all eligible for the
DILAs. We have identified five awards for each of those categories
(see here). The Creative Director award for teachers, for instance,
spotlights teachers who are inspiring their students to create
high-quality multimedia projects. The Administrator Open Door Policy
Award will elevate administrators leading the way in collaboration,
communication, and sharing their schools practices with others. And
for organizations, the Mindful Data Award will celebrate a company or
nonprofit that has exemplary data management policies. (Again, heres
the full list.)
The DILAs will be awarded at a special Gala event on Friday, November
21 in Mountain View, CA. Finalists will win a free round-trip flight
and hotel accommodations to the Bay Area for the Silicon Valley
Summit (November 21-22), a seat and dinner at the Digital Learning in
Innovation Awards Gala on November 21, and an official DILA Trophy
and digital badge. Videos of the top work will also be featured on
the EdSurge and Digital Promise sites. Additional questions and
answers are here on our FAQ.
Apply or nominate someone--or a team--whose work you admire today!
Nominations should be made no later than September 15. All candidates
for DILAs will be invited to create a brief video that shares their
practices. Full applications are due by October 1.
Lets shine a spotlight on great practices in education technology!
Thank you for sharing your expertise and suggestions! If you have any
additional questions, please drop us a note at
