PBS is looking for America's most innovative, tech-savvy educators

PBS sponsors a program that recognizes teachers who use digital media in their classrooms and are educational technology leaders.  It's called their PBS LearningMedia Digital Innovators program, and you can apply to participate in this program for the 2016-2017 school year.  Applications are due by February 8 at 9:59pm EST.
The application process is easy.  Just create one short video, answer two short essay questions, and complete an application.  And here's the best part: if you submit a complete application by the deadline, you will automatically be invited to join the program!  Benefits of applying include one year of free PD opportunities, invitations to special events, and other benefits.

From that self-selected group, PBS LearningMedia will select 54 teachers to serve as Lead Innovators.  This group will receive a 3-day, all-expense paid trip to Denver to participate in a conference on June 25 and 26, and to attend the ISTE conference on June 27.  They will also receive a Samsung Galaxy tablet.

Here's a video one Digital Innovator submitted last year as part of his application.

Well, today people are more into digitals and it certainly affects the studying process. The internet is the most important thing, which makes it easier for modern students to get something their parents or grandparents couldn’t. Nowadays there even exist professional essay writers working online, which will get their papers done in several hours. Just look for UK writing online here by the link to look at one of the best UK-based online wring companies. This is why I’m totally lucky to live at times of the technological progress.

If absolutely honestly saying, I was not very fond of attending school. But I've always loved to write an essays. Even now, I work at paidpaper.net as a professional writer, so I can say that the school helps person to choose his future profession.
