Microsoft is looking for self-driven educators who are passionate about their careers and inspiring students with outside-the-box thinking. If you have a collaborative spirit, are resourceful and entrepreneurial, relish the role of being a change agent, and work to achieve excellence in education using advanced technologies and social media – then you may have what it takes to be a Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert (MIE).
MIE experts get to share their thoughts on the effective use of technology in education with peers and policy makers. They provide insight for Microsoft on new products and tools that will be used or developed for the education sector, and they get to exchange best practices with their fellow MIE experts. If you would like to find out more about the Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert programme, or to apply by 30 October 2015 do the following:
1. Do NOT attempt to make a profile on the old site: http://www.educatornetwork.com/Sites/Educators/Expert. This is because Microsoft is also migrating to its new site on 30th October as shown in the next link.
2. The new link to the Microsoft Innovative Education Expert page on the Microsoft Educator Network is http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/education/educators/miee/default.aspx
