Newspaper report in the Star – SA educators gather for Microsoft’s Global Forum in Barcelona

The Microsoft in Education Global Forum recognizes and celebrates the achievements of educators who are preparing students for life in the 21st century. Each year, the Microsoft in Education Global Forum brings together participants from the Microsoft Innovative Educators Program and the Microsoft Innovative Schools Program for an energetic, collaborative conference. This year the Global Forum took place in Barcelona, Spain between 11 and 14 March 2014. The Forum was attended by more than 1000 of the world’s most innovative educators, school leaders, and education leaders from 75 countries including fourteen delegates from South Africa and Lesotho. 

We were thrilled to read this report of the event in the Star, Johannesburg on 1 April 2014, which captures the highlights of the event. SchoolNet works with Microsoft to arrange this event locally and Megan Rademeyer from SchoolNet was selected as a judge at the World event.
