NSBA '20 To Watch' Nomination Deadline Nears
Nominations for the National School Boards Association's "20 To Watch" program are coming to a close within the next two weeks. The program aims to recognize innovators in the field of education technology.
"Leadership is critical at the building, district, state, and federal levels to ensure that today's tools are used in ways that have a positive impact on education," said Ann Flynn, NSBA director of education technology, in a prepared statement. "We hope this program will encourage educators to reflect on the hard work and commitment of their colleagues whose education technology efforts have not yet been recognized on a national level. This is a chance for individuals to share their own accomplishments or promote the work of younger colleagues."
In the past, those named to the list have included a broad range of ed tech professionals, from district technology personnel to university researchers to technology and learning providers. This year, "District, classroom, and building leaders will be considered, as well as other individuals making outstanding contributions to the field," according to NSBA. Nominees can be from K-12 institutions, colleges and universities, or non-profit organizations.
Nominations will be accepted until Aug. 29. Winners will be announced in October at the T+L Conference. Further information about the nomination process can be found here.
