Congratulations to Abingdon Gifted Resources Teacher, Jackie Firster – She will represent Virginia as a Lead Digital Innovator!
The PBS LearningMedia Digital Innovators program recognizes educators nationwide who are incorporating digital media in classrooms and serving as leaders in educational technology. Over the course of the 2016/2017 school year, PBS LearningMedia Digital Innovators has been part of a robust professional learning community that will foster new ways of thinking, while leading the way in using technology to drive student achievement. 54 applicants, one from each US state and territory, have been designated as Lead PBS LearningMedia Digital Innovators – and Ms. Firster was selected! She will also receive a three day, all-expense paid trip to Denver, CO to participate in the PBS LearningMedia Digital Innovators Summit and the prestigious ISTE Conference from June 25-27, 2016. A television crew came to Abingdon to capture Ms. Firster and her students in action.
