ABOUT the 2017 #ISPAsuperteachers competition
The 2017 ISPA SuperTeacher Competition is an annual competition sponsored by the Internet Service Providers’ Association (ISPA). The competition is managed by the Digital Education Institute.
This prestigious competition has a proud history going back to 2001, when ISPA launched the competition, to support their Train the Teacher ICT Project. This year we hope to extend the competition to include more teachers and reach more schools and communities. We have also introduced a mobile safety category catering to the ever growing use of mobile devices in and out of the classroom.
What is the aim?
The ISPA SuperTeacher Competition gives educators an opportunity to showcase their skills in using Information Communication Technologies (ICT) to improve the educational environment within their classroom, school or community.
Who is eligible?
All educators currently teaching at schools throughout South Africa.
Mobile Tech Teacher Award

The winning educators are selected by a PANEL OF JUDGES appointed by the Digital Education Institute.
