Congratulations to the 122 teachers from South Africa and Lesotho who were recently named as Microsoft Innovative Educator Experts (MIE-Experts) on the Microsoft Educator Community. Of these, approximately half of the MIE-Experts joined the program in 2014 or 2015, and have opted to remain part of the program for another year. We are also thrilled to have over 50 new teachers joining the MIE-Expert ranks – welcome aboard! Although the MIE-Expert application process on the Microsoft Educator Community has closed, South African and Lesotho teachers have a final opportunity to apply to be part of the MIE Expert program for 2016/2017. If you would like to be part of this elite group of teachers who are using technology to pave the way for better learning and student outcomes you have until 15 September 2016 to submit your application. To apply, you will need to:
- join the Microsoft Educator Community and complete your profile;
