The ISPA SuperTeacher Competition is an annual competition sponsored by the Internet Service Providers’ Association (ISPA) and managed by CoZa Cares Foundation. The aim of the competition is to give educators an opportunity to showcase their skills in using ICT to improve the educational environment within their school or community. SchoolNet’s Megan Rademeyer had the pleasure of serving as one of the judges for this competition – which meant that she had a sneak-peek at the portfolios of evidence which the ten finalists had submitted. These portfolios demonstrated how teachers and school leaders had used technology to:
- enhance teaching and learning in the 21st century;
- enhance productivity, administration and motivation in their schools
- and strengthen relationships between the school and the community which it serves.
Congratulations to the finalists for using technology in such sound and engaging ways and well done to CoZa Cares Foundation for recognising teachers who are making a difference in their schools and communities.
