August may be coming to an end, but the relentless stream of educational innovation we’re seeing from our global community certainly isn’t. This week, the 5000th application since we inaugurated Reimagine Education in 2014 was opened: a huge milestone for an initiative that began with just over 250. Since then, we’ve seen nearly another 100 commenced, and we’re delighted to see that more and more of the world’s best universities and most promising edtech companies are sharing their work with us. There’s still more than enough time to be one of them: our competition closes on 15th September.
There is still – just about – also time to submit if you’d like to be a judge, speaker, or to run a workshop at the event. However, those calls must close on Sunday at 23:59 GMT, so it truly is now or never (well – at least for 2019) if you’d like to participate in our program.
All speaker proposals will be reviewed early next week, and all applicants will be informed of the outcome of their submission by next Friday.
For those currently underway with their Awards competition application: Serena and I are very keen to do all within our power to make applying as smooth as possible. To this end:
- If you have reached Stage 4, please note that, due to a small glitch in our system, it is not currently possible to select ‘Not Applicable’ when coming to choose your disciplinary category. This issue is currently being rectified. In the meantime, please continue with your application and choose any of the available categories, before sending me an email notifying me that, upon rectification, you would like your Disciplinary Category to be changed to ‘Not Applicable’;
- If you would like me to organise a call with you to talk you through the application, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org: I will be glad to provide further assistance.
