As you know, your student population is as diverse as it has ever been. Language, race, culture, religion, accessibility — whatever the need, as educators you not only have to teach them, you have to reach them, and technology can be a powerful tool to help you do so.
TCEA Educator Awards and Scholarships
At TCEA, we honor the work all educators do to advance teaching and learning through the use of technology with our annual Educator Awards and Scholarships. We realize how difficult your task is across the board, not only teaching your students what they have to know, but learning the tools that you need to know to create educational equity for the most diverse classrooms your school has ever seen. Although this task is difficult, it is significant, and it should be recognized.
