Announcing the 2021 Cohort of HP Teaching Fellows – Digital Promise

Announcing the 2021 Cohort of HP Teaching Fellows

April 14, 2021 | By

We’re excited to announce the 2021 cohort of HP Teaching Fellows! The new cohort includes 25 educators from across the United States and Canada, selected for their excellence in powerful teaching and learning with technology.

HP Teaching Fellows Exemplify Powerful Learning

HP Teaching Fellows are part of Reinvent the Classroom, a collaboration between Digital Promise, HP, Microsoft, and Intel. These educators create deep, meaningful learning experiences for their students that are personal and accessible, authentic and challenging, collaborative and connected, and inquisitive and reflective.

HP Teaching Fellows become part of a network of like-minded educators who deepen their understanding of Powerful Learning through free professional learning with Digital Promise. They support one another in the powerful use of HP and Microsoft tools, such as using Skype and Microsoft Teams to organize virtual field trips, using Minecraft to engage students in design challenges, and using Flipgrid to help students connect with and share their indigenous languages and cultures. HP Teaching Fellows also receive opportunities for networking, presenting, and sharing thought leadership through online publications and virtual events. By sharing what they’ve learned, they advocate for reinventing the classroom and inspire others with their creativity and passion for this work.
