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).
|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.
