Educators of the Year
Each year, the members of the IDEA Executive Board approve the winners of several awards that are designed to recognize the outstanding efforts of IDEA members. The IDEA Technology Educator of the Year program honors current IDEA members who have made outstanding contributions integrating technology in education. The award is specifically designed to recognize IDEA Educators at all experience levels—from the beginner to the advanced user.
There are two categories for the annual Educator of the Year awards:
Nominations are reviewed by the IDEA Awards Committee. The final selections are recommended to the IDEA Executive Board for confirmation.
The Educator of the Year Awards were presented at the annual conference, IDEAcon, at the The Renaissance Convention Center in Schaumburg, IL on February 25, 2020. Each award winner received a commemorative plaque and a complimentary 3-day general conference registration for the conference.
Applications for the 2021 Awards will open in the fall. If you have any questions, please contact our Awards Co-Chairs Eric Hansen and Lisa Bergoff firstname.lastname@example.org.
