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).

You will also be asked to describe a lesson you have taught in which you have incorporated Microsoft technologies that enabled 21st Century skill development. You can either write your response or create and share a link to a 2 minute video, Office Mix, or a Sway, that creatively expresses what makes you a Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert.
