ISHI Tec Rec (Technology Recognition) Award Competition

ISHI (Illinois Supervisors of Programs for Hard of Hearing/Deaf Individuals) created the TecRec Award in 2003/04 to identify and promote teachers who use technology in the classroom as a teaching strategy. The competition has had a great response from the field and has since been held annually.

Judges look at creativity and how projects relate to curriculum; they also wish to choose a variety of age levels/abilities and different types of technology to show the many ways teachers can incorporate technology into their lessons. Authors of winning projects receive a $500 award; awards are presented at the Illinois Teachers of Deaf/Hard of Hearing Individuals (ITHI) conference.
