The ISPA SuperTeachers Competition, which is managed by the Digital Education Institute (DEI), is one of the longest-running annual competitions celebrating South African teachers who are using technology to enhance education.
According to project manager Milford Malunga at DEI, “The ISPA SuperTeacher of the Year Awards are well-respected in education circles, both for their longevity and for the huge role they have played in encouraging teachers to pioneer ICT.”
The SuperTeachers competition offers teachers an opportunity to showcase their skills in using digital resources to enhance classroom teaching and learning. This year, for the first time, competition entries will focus on applying cutting edge ICT thinking to design an innovative and effective ICT-infused lesson plan that is aligned to the curriculum.
Interested teachers need to register for the competition by Monday 13 May 2019 and then their final entry (their lesson plan) must be submitted by Friday 28 June 2019. Between registering and submitting their final entries, teachers will have access to a Facebook community of support to assist them with their entries.
This year prizes will be awarded in two categories in order to accommodate teachers who have access to different levels of resources at their schools. A prize is also being offered to a teacher who is able to recruit ten or more eligible colleagues to participate. Finalists will all be invited to attend iWeek – which is being held in Johannesburg in September, where the ISPA SuperTeacher of the Year Awards will be presented.
