Ashley Judd, a fourth grade teacher at Tyner Elementary in Jackson County, was recently named one of 30 educators chosen from across the country as part of the first PBS Digital Innovator All-Star Program.

The Digital Innovator All-Stars were selected from a pool of extraordinary educators – who were previously named PBS Digital Innovators and nominated by their local PBS stations – for their creative and innovative work to integrate technology and digital media into their classrooms.

“PBS is committed to recognizing and celebrating educators for the immeasurable work they do in their communities,” said Sara Schapiro, PBS’ vice president of education. “We are excited to see the new and inventive ways these educators will support students’ learning through this program.”

PBS Digital Innovator All-Stars will spend the 2018-2019 school year deepening engagement among students, families, educators, schools and their local PBS stations. As an exclusive part of the program, they will have access to virtual and in-person events, including the PBS Digital Innovator All-Star Summit, to connect and learn with their peers and station representatives from across the country.
