Teachers’ Technology Integration Award Program (TTIA)

Aim and Description of the Program

The aim of the award is to encourage school teachers to utilize technology tools in their classrooms. Teachers need to demonstrate that the technology tool is utilized in such a way that enhances English language acquisition and that it is appropriate to the material taught. Based on this notion, teachers are asked to provide a 30-minute video (minimum) of how they integrate the technology tool in their classrooms. The video must demonstrate balance between teacher input and student’s use of the tool during the lesson. Teachers must show that they have allocated appropriate timing for different stages of the English lesson including time for using the technology.
