This award is intended to recognise the importance of the work of South Australian teachers who are contributing to the use of ICTs in their schools. Administrators in schools, district and regional personnel and people attached to offices of school systems also contribute to learning, schools and the professional computer education community. However, this award focuses on recognising the efforts of classroom-based educators. Nominees must be based in a school and considered a member of the teaching staff of that school.
