PBS Teachers Innovation Awards Winners

In early 2010, PBS Teachers invited PreK-12th grade educators to share ideas, photographs, and videos showcasing how they were engaging students with innovative ideas and technologies. We received nearly 700 entries from teachers across the United States. Below is the list of winners and links to view their submissions.

First place winners received a SMART Board™ Interactive Whiteboard System, a Logitech camera and were invited to the PBS annual membership meeting. First and second place winners received an exclusive educator's kit filled with tools and instructional technology resources for the classroom from PBS and Elmer's Products, Inc., as well as a Web-based facilitated course from the professional development service, PBS TeacherLine. Teacher's Choice winners received a gift card to PBS Educational Media.
