Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert Applications – Now open!

« Return to Latest News

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 - E2 Exchange
The group of S.A teachers that attended the E2 Global Forum in Seattle

Being an MIE has a number of benefits including: 

• Access to numerous FREE education resources, apps and tools 

• An opportunity to connect with educators around the world via Microsoft’s global EduCast Webinar series 

• An opportunity to build educator capacity in your community 

• Eligibility to attend the Microsoft Global Educator Exchange Event (E2) in March/April 2016 

To complete your entry you will be required to tell us why you consider yourself to be a Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert and how you think being an MIE Expert will enhance your teaching. 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. 

Entries close on 30 October 2015. See the MIE Expert site for more information and a link to the application form. See
