“Inspire” - According to the Oxford English dictionary to inspire is “to fill (someone) with the urge or ability to do or feel something, especially to do something creative”. With the integration of technology into the world of education, one practice has become increasingly important; to ensure our students are given the opportunity to be inspired to be creative. Our students today find inspiration to make a difference in the world, and they are doing it in many creative ways using the skills we are teaching them. As educators, it has always been a part of who we are and what we strive to do - inspire our students. In 2020 and beyond, I am confident that we will continue to inspire our students and the best part, they will inspire the world. In 2019, Illinois Digital Educators Alliance “IDEA” invited educators from across the state to share their stories on how they inspire their students”. We invite you to join us in celebrating the stories of inspiration that support our students in learning, growing, and creating the changes today that will be needed for their futures tomorrow.
