It’s time to start thinking about applications for the Australian Impact Awards powered by Wavia, and today we’re highlighting the importance of the Education category.
The Australian Impact Awards powered by Wavia is already accepting submissions and represents one of the most exciting awards nights for the tech industry. With plenty of categories supporting different fields, there’s plenty of reasons to apply if you’ve made an impact in your area of work.
One of the more exciting categories is our Education prize – the Leading for Change award. For this award, we’re looking for motivated teachers and mentors who have been making waves with their tech solutions and changing the way the industry operates.
The world of education is one that should always be on the forefront of technological change. Given the importance of supporting young people in their growth and development, it’s only natural that teachers would be using up-to-date tech as teaching tools and methods of education.
Think about the unique relationship education and technology share – tech represents both a platform for the sharing of educational resources, but also a key tool in the teaching process itself. Both of these ideas are constantly evolving and changing as the tech available becomes more specialised and powerful.
That’s not even mentioning the fact that the global pandemic we’ve faced over the last few years has drastically changed the way education utilises technology. There’s now an entire generation of young people who experienced years of online learning, and the industry had to rapidly change in order to accommodate this new way of teaching.
So why should you get a submission in for the Leading for Change award? Well, because it represents empowering teaching staff and reminding us of the importance of driving technological change in the world of education. There are plenty of educators out there who are pushing the boundaries of tech in teaching, and helping to create a better learning environment and experience for students everywhere, and these people deserve some recognition!
So if you’re a teacher or mentor who has made important changes to the way technology is used in the classroom in recent years, or you know someone who fits the mould and deserves some recognition for it, then make sure to head over to the official site of the Impact Awards and get your submission in before Monday 19 September!
