PBS LearningMedia and the Henry Ford announce call for entries for the third annual 2012 Teacher Innovator Awards.  The awards recognize innovative PreK-12 educators using digital media to enhance learning in the classroom.  Know a teacher like this?  Nominate your outstanding teacher or apply today through December 12, 2012.  Top 30 receive prizes, top 10…pack your bags!

The Teacher Innovator Awards recognize classroom educators, media specialists, technology coordinators and homeschool educators who are digital pioneers, paving the way for new teaching techniques and a more interactive learning experience.

PBS LearningMedia, a free digital media on-demand service for parents and educators, has been designed to help teachers with digital media resources to enhance the learning experience in the classroom.  

Teachers can apply for the Teacher Innovator Awards by submitting a video up to 3 minutes in length or a written essay, up to three pages with images.  Entries must address how they are using digital media to enhance students’ learning by augmenting the traditional textbook approach to teaching.  Thirty educators in total will receive prizes for their outstanding work with the top 10 winners receiving a professional development prize package for a week-long, all-expense-paid "Innovation Immersion Experience" at The Henry Ford in Dearborn, Michigan, and a PBS TeacherLine course. The deadline to apply for the awards is December 12, 2012.

The 2012 Teacher Innovator Award winners will be announced in March 2013.  For more information on the awards, visit www.pbslearningmedia.org/innovators/. For more information on PBS LearningMedia for local schools and districts, visit http://aetn.pbslearningmedia.org/

Guest Blogger Nick Harrington: My AETN Internship Experience
I have to admit that I didn’t really know what to expect when I first applied for an internship here at AETN. In the past, I had worked internships that were mostly busy work. AETN was different. I was actually helping to contribute. Overall my experience at AETN was a great one and I’d highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great starting point in looking for a career.
