Become an NMC K-12 Ambassador!

UDPDATE: The deadline for the NMC K-12 Ambassador Program has come and gone, leaving us with what can only be described as a brilliant flurry of video submissions -- emphasis on brilliant! K-12 professionals of all ages and backgrounds from all over the world have shared their stories with us. These are the educators that are bringing the NMC Horizon Report series to life on a daily basis by successfully integrating emerging technologies and pedagogies into pre-college learning experiences.

All of these stories, in the form of 2 minute videos, are live on our special NMC K-12 Ambassador playlist on the official NMC YouTube channel. Watch these stories -- we dare you not to be inspired!

Our Ask:
We'd also love your thoughts. We will be selecting from this pool of candidates a group of NMC K-12 Ambassadors -- people who will be awarded a free NMC membership and have a major voice in our K-12 strategy. By "liking" your favorite videos on YouTube (the thumbs up icon under each video), you can help us identify these K-12 leaders.


We are excited to announce the launch of the NMC K-12 Ambassadors Program, a global search for K-12 education professionals who are committed to using innovative approaches to teaching and learning in their K-12 classrooms. Distinguished as NMC Ambassadors, these 25 individuals will earn a one-year NMC membership as well as an influential place within the NMC community as part of a diverse group of K-12 educators.

Selected ambassadors will serve as knowledgeable members of the NMC Horizon Project K-12 Advisory Board in the discussions that lead to the NMC Horizon Report > 2013 K-12 Edition, be the experts in their field in the NMC Commons, and gain recognition among an international body of colleagues as innovative educators.

To be considered for this distinction, candidates must submit a video to introduce themselves to the NMC community in two minutes or less. Effective applicants will explain:

  • What significant changes are happening in their classroom.
  • How the NMC Horizon Report series influences their practices.
  • The concepts that guide their teaching philosophy and pedagogy.


Videos with a high number of ‘Like’s on YouTube are sure to catch our attention, so consider the audience of spirited edtech innovators when working on your submission!

To submit your application, email your video in .mp4 or .mov format, submit the video via URL, or share it via Dropbox -- all to Holly Ludgate at In your submission email, please make sure to include your name, school, position, contact number, and email address.

All submissions will be uploaded to the NMC K-12 Ambassadors YouTube channel.  

The deadline for videos is February 10, 2013. Best of luck!
