Educators provide knowledge by sharing stories and the process of teaching yields some of the greatest stories of all. Are you a Georgia teacher using public media resources and/or innovative strategies in your classroom? We'd like to invite you to share your story about positive impacts on your instruction.

As a guest blogger for GPB Education, your story will appear on our website and be promoted through our social media pages. Interested in sharing your story? Click here to learn more. 

We are calling all exceptional Georgia educators who transform student learning through the use of technology and digital media. PBS is now accepting applications for the 2017 PBS Digital Innovators Program.

The call for entries officially opened on December 12 and will remain open through midnight, February 13, 2017. Educators are asked to submit a 60- to 180-second "mini-presentation" video to show how they are using resources from PBS LearningMedia and the WGBH Educational Foundation, along with digital technology and tools in their classroom to enhance their teaching and inspire a love of learning in their students. Entrants will also be asked to complete a profile and answer a short essay question.
