This issue of EdJewTopia, focuses on the stories of individuals who were affected by organizations that reward teachers through monetary gifts, public acknowledgment and by providing unique and exciting opportunities for professional growth. What particularly makes these organizations' awards and fellowships impactful is that these stellar educators are required to "teach forward" the tools and skills they gained through these programs.
This issue explores some of the many opportunities available for enrichment and recognition. It tells how the Grinspoon-Steinhardt Award cultivates a Community of Practice to enhance one's skills, PELIE’s Technology Fellowship provides educators with the opportunity to attend technology in education conferences, and Darim Online offers incredible opportunities for teachers to learn about new tools regarding social media.
It also presents a listing of cool tools, and features the exciting opportunity to apply to be part of the 2012 ISTE Fellowship!
