Inspired Teacher Scholarships Program Expanded


Inspiration Software said it's expanding its Inspired Teacher Scholarships for Visual Learning program. The program awards educators for "creatively using visual learning to help their students think and learn" with $1,000 to support professional development or classroom technologies.

In addition to the regular awards, this year the program includes a "Best Overall Visual Learning Project" award for one educator. Eight awards will be given to educators who teach grades 6 through 12 and adult programs for innovative use of Inspiration Software's Inspiration software; another eight will be awarded to teachers in grade K through 5 for innovative use of the company's Kidspiration software; and eight more will go to teachers using InspireData for data visualization applications. The "Best Overall" award will receive $2,000, which includes $500 for the classroom and a $500 personal award for the teacher.

Applications will be available Sept. 25 at the link below.
