BECOME A HERO
Each year, a group of educators will be selected after entering our Sphero Heroes application process. We’re looking for passionate and dedicated teachers that are active leaders in their community. Our Heroes already showcase a variety of skills highlighting Sphero Edu, whether they present at regional conferences, partake in professional learning, create amazing content, or are social media evangelists. These educators are authentic in their beliefs about education and trusted to see commitments through.
Once selected, these educators will continue their work as a Certified Sphero Hero and be a representative for Sphero Edu on our behalf, doing what they already do best.
The goal of Sphero Heroes is to help innovative teachers share their story more loudly. We are looking to amplify their influence by helping to share their expertise and excitement for learning. We want to support active leaders that are helping other educators discover what’s possible with Sphero Edu.
THINK YOU’RE A SPHERO HERO
Candidates for the Sphero Heroes program must be highly motivated professionals exemplifying a spirit of creativity and curiosity in education and within the Sphero Edu community. Heroes will need to complete the application process which includes a short video biography answering select questions, and submit two Sphero Edu activities. They will be evaluated by the Sphero Edu team based on a predetermined rubric categorized by authenticity, creativity, and understanding of the program. Plus, candidates are generally just awesome.
