Each year the Australian Council for Computers in Education (ACCE) and the Australian Computer Society (ACS) host the ACCE Educator of the Year Award. This award recognises exemplary educational practice involving the use of computer technology in the teaching and learning environment.
Nominees for this award are usually the individual state Educator of the Year winners, and in WA the award is the Educational Computing Association of Western Australia’s Educator of the Year Award.
The award is intended to recognise the efforts of ECAWA members who are contributing very significantly to the use of ICTs in their schools.
While it is understood that university based educators, school administrators and district / regional personnel also contribute to the professional computer education community, this award focuses on the efforts of classroom-based educators. Nominees must be based in a school and considered a member of that school’s teaching staff.
To be considered for ECAWA’s Educator of the Year Award, educators may be nominated by their peers or may nominate themselves, using the appropriate form.
