Innovations for a Million Students

The Allen Distinguished Educator awards aims to transform the teaching of engineering, entrepreneurship, and computer science in the U.S. and reach a million students over the next three years.

To do that, the program will highlight the work of innovative teachers and using their examples to encourage and enable other educators to adopt their practices.

Learn from how we put together this program and the lessons from the first groups of Allen Distinguished Educators, which was inspired by and funded by entrepreneur and philanthropist Paul G. Allen.
