The competition is managed by the Digital Education Institute (DEI), a non-profit educational organisation.
The 2018 ISPA SuperTeacher of the Year competition gave educators an opportunity to showcase their skills in using Information Communication Technologies (ICT) to improve the educational environment in their classrooms, schools or communities.
According to Milford Malunga, project manager at DEI, “The required projects submitted by the ten ISPA SuperTeacher of the Year finalists reflect the growing influence and importance of the wider digital environment. The impact of our digital world can clearly be seen in the improving quality and scope of the finalists’ projects year after year. The judges wish all of the deserving finalists well this year as they compete for this most sought-after of ICT accolades.”
