Portland, Ore.– June 5, 2018 – Learning.com celebrated Teacher Appreciation Week 2018 by recognizing digital literacy teachers across the country in a special contest that honored educators who teach technology. School administrators were encouraged to nominate a teacher superhero who goes above and beyond to equip their students with the digital literacy skills needed for success on online assessments, in college and in their future careers.
Nominees included classroom teachers, technology specialists, media specialists and school librarians. Heartfelt entries were written and submitted online by principals who praised their nominees’ efforts and recognized the contributions they have made to the students at their schools. Comments from the winning entries included teacher achievements in integrating digital literacy in the classroom such as “uses a variety of tech tools and programs,” “embraced digital literacy this year with passion,” and “because of him our students are able to use technology.”
The winning educators will receive a free, one-year classroom subscription to EasyTech, Learning.com’s award-winning digital literacy curriculum for grades K-8. Their free access begins on July 1, 2018.
