Nominate a teacher for the 2009 Totally Wired Teacher Award
Deadline for nominations: May 15th, 2009 at 5 p.m. PST
Criteria: Must be a U.S. public school classroom teacher (grades 3-12)
From Anastasia's Ypulse blog, "The award is inspired by my book, Totally Wired: What Teens & Tweens Are Really Doing Online, and the challenges I observed around integrating technology into public school classrooms. We will recognize a teacher who has overcome these challenges and is inspiring to both students and other educators". (Goodstein, 2009)
Anastasia Goodstein visited Augusta, GA on the Totally Wired book tour in October 2007. Turn out wasn't the greatest due to a ruptured sewer line in the library earlier that day.
The Augusta Chronicle article, Writer takes parents into the online world was published on October 18, 2007. I have my signed copy of Anastasia's book and my teenager read this book in one sitting when we supported the students taking SATs at Butler High School.
Anastasia posted the 2009 Totally Wired Teacher Award on her blog on 4/15/09.
So take a minute and nominate a teacher that is Totally Wired, overcomes the challenges, and inspires others.
