What the game’s about
Each semester we celebrate our campus EdTech Innovators– everyone who’s using technology to explore new pedagogical approaches. We applaud you for being the first, for developing best-practices yourself (because maybe you’re doing something nobody else has). For the epic win, innovate in the most EdTech categories and (most importantly!) help your colleagues level up. The ultimate award will be yours.
