Cohort 1 Innovative Educator Applications Available

Do you want to add your name to this map and join our existing group of 36 Innovative Educators who are currently pioneering 1:1 learning environments in classrooms throughout our district? Do you have a vision for technology integration to support instruction and student learning? Do you want to collaborate with your colleagues around powerful and meaningful classroom instruction that is further enhanced by instructional technology? If so, our Innovative Educator program may be a good fit for you and your colleagues.

 Applications are now available online. You must be logged into your WUSD Google Account to view and complete the application. If you are not sure if you have activated your WUSD Google Account yet, you can do so by following these instructions outlined in an earlier blog post.

Applications will remain open until October 25, 2015 at 8:00 pm PST.  Incomplete applications will not be considered.

Teams of teachers are encouraged to apply.  If accepted, teams will share a mobile cart for the remainder of the 2015-2016 year once they are delivered to classrooms.  (Delivery of carts is  slated to coincide with the start of 2nd semester in mid-January.)  Team members would then receive their own classroom cart for the 2016-2017 school year.  Teachers accepted into the program would receive specialized training and coaching and have voluntary opportunities to attend local and regional Instructional Technology Conferences.  Additionally, teachers and their students will have a chance to participate in a Technology Showcase for the larger community in late May to highlight some of the amazing things happening in classrooms throughout our district.

You can learn more about the Innovative Educator Program Application by visiting our website, reading our FAQs, attending one of our upcoming Information Sessions on October 7 or 21 (sessions from 3:00-4:00 and repeated from 4:00-5:00 in Room 48 at District Office), reaching out to any of our existing Innovative Educators, or asking Melissa Oliver or Kim Harrison.

We look forward to welcoming Cohort 1 to the Innovative Educator Program when they are named and notified via email by COB on October 30, 2015.
