ACCE/ACS Digital Technologies Teacher of the Year
The ACCE Digital Technologies Teacher of the Year award is a national award intended to recognise the importance of the work of Australian teachers who are innovatively employing the Digital Technologies Curriculum in their K-12 schools.
Each state member association has the opportunity to nominate a K-12 school-based educator for the award. The nominee will usually be the recipient of a similar state award. Nominations have to be submitted to ACCE by November 30 annually.
The ACCE Digital Technologies Teacher of the Year award is announced and presented at a national conference where practical.
→ receives up to $2,000
→ receives a plaque
→ is recognized on the ACCE web site
→ may be invited to present at the next ACCE conference
