Announcing the 2014 DILAs Winners! – Digital Promise

Announcing the 2014 DILAs Winners!

October 30, 2014 | By

Ever since we announced the Digital Innovation in Learning Awards in June, we’ve been looking forward to this moment: sharing the winners!

We embarked on this project with EdSurge to showcase excellence and raise the bar across teaching, leadership, and development.

More than 550 people submitted a 3-minute video demonstrating their practice for awards like Busting Boundaries, Open Door Policy, and Research@Work. The 17 winners selected by the judges prove that teachers, administrators, and organizations everywhere are using technology to engage and inspire learning every single day.

These winners will be celebrated at a gala event on November 21, 2014 in Silicon Valley. The keynote speaker will be Dr. Hakeem Oluseyi, astrophysicist and host of the Science Channel’s Outrageous Acts of Science. We invite you to join us!

Check out the winning videos below and help us spread the word!
