Who They Are: The Cupertino Educational Endowment Foundation (CEEF) is committed to supporting outstanding public education for students in the Cupertino Union School District.
How They Help: CEEF contributes private philanthropy to bridge critical gaps in public education funding and enhance classroom education for the Cupertino Union School District (CUSD).
Description: The Cupertino Educational Endowment Foundation (CEEF) is committed to supporting outstanding public education for all students in the Cupertino Union School District (CUSD). CEEF works in partnership with CUSD, parents, and the local community to raise funds for quality educational programs that federal and state funding alone can no longer support.
In partnership with CUSD, CEEF is pleased to announce our 3rd Annual Innovative Technology Educator Award. The purpose of this award is to acknowledge and celebrate innovative pedagogical practices using technology in classrooms throughout CUSD.
CEEF recognizes the importance of supporting CUSD teachers in their efforts to explore and develop effective teaching practices, learning strategies, and classroom assessment tools. We hope that this recognition will serve as an important means for increasing the exploration, creation, and sharing of “best practices” in the implementation and integration of educational technologies in the classroom.
Application: The Innovative Technology Educator Award recognizes one exceptional teacher for either classroom practices or a project that inspires communication, intellectual curiosity, and/or creativity through the use of technology. The winner of this award will be formally acknowledged at CEEF’s 29th annual Gala, “The Power of Magic,” to be held at the Fairmont San Jose on March 1st, 2014. The awardee will receive a ticket to the Gala as well as a $500 stipend.
