A warm and hearty congratulations to all the finalists and recipients of the 2021-2022 Educator Awards and Scholarships! Having taken place virtually on the evening of March 1, 2022, TCEA presented 10 awards and three scholarships to finalists from all across the world.
These awards recognize educators who have demonstrated great devotion to using technology to advance teaching and learning in the classroom. They have also developed innovative, enriching methods of using new platforms and tools to aid students and colleagues in realizing their potential.
Our finalists submitted videos to demonstrate their accomplishments in all kinds of creative ways, from a 90s-style rap music video to a virtual Minecraft classroom.
