Liz Dooley, a fourth grade teacher at Springmyer Elementary School, was selected through a competitive process to be a 2016 PBS LearningMedia Digital Innovator. She joins educators from across the country who will participate in a year-long professional development program focused on fostering and developing a community of tech-savvy educators that will serve as leaders for integrating best practices in digital learning in their classrooms.

PBS LearningMedia Digital Innovators were selected according to multiple criteria, including that they are tech-savvy K-12 educators with a passion for using digital technology and media and sharing strategies around digital media integration with their peers, active sharers of content and ideas through social media, and ambassadors of PBS education content that embrace life-long learning.

Mrs. Dooley is looking forward to the opportunities that participating in the program will afford. “I am very excited to connect with educators from around the country who share a passion for technology,” she said. “I know that both my students and I will benefit from what I will learn and be able to share with others.”
