Turning education around

24 April 2014

If you know a teacher making a difference in the lives of your children every day, we want to know about it. They and their schools can win amazing prizes.

Last year we changed the future of 12 schools forever. We rewarded the heroes among our educators with iPad labs, textbooks and training which have boosted the quality of education at their schools.

Now we’re getting ready to do the same for more schools. If you know a teacher making a  difference in the lives of your children every day, we want to know about it.

What teachers and schools can win

  • An iPad lab containing 20 iPad minis, each with a cover, Wi-Fi functionality and a 16GB memory; a MacBook Pro laptop and a multi-adaptor; a projector and an iTunes budget.
  • An iPad mini for the teacher to use in the classroom and at home, courtesy of iSchoolAfrica.
  • Teacher training sponsored by iSchoolAfrica on how to use the iPad mini.
  • Membership of the iSchoolAfrica iPad community and the Oxford Focus School project for the schools and teachers.
  • Textbooks, fiction, study guides and dictionaries, supplied after a needs analysis by Oxford University Press.

How to nominate a teacher
