Be a Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert – Apply by October 15th

Would you like to join a visionary community of educators passionate about improving student outcomes through use of technology?

At Microsoft, we believe that technology alone cannot build 21st century skills for students. We believe in the power of the educator, and the impact educators can have when they are brought together and recognized for their achievements.

Each year, Microsoft selects innovative educator experts (MIE Experts) to be part of this exclusive global community who are paving the way for their peers to share ideas, try new approaches and learn from each other. Educators such as Julie Hembree — a library media specialist in Sammamish, Washington — joined the Expert Educator and found the program helped her connect with educators around the globe and share ideas on how to integrate technology into teaching. Read about how Hebree entices students to read more by making book video trailers to advertise library books she thinks students will enjoy reading.

Participants of the program can expect:

  • Free Microsoft tools and technology
  • Exclusive professional development opportunities
  • To develop your personal "brand" and career as a thought leader by participating in case studies, speaking engagements and content development
  • Eligibility to earn an all-expense paid trip to the Microsoft in Education Global Forum in Redmond, Washington in April 2015.

As an MIE Expert your role in the Community will be to:

  • Build educator capacity for using technology in both the classroom and curriculum to improve student learning
  • Advise Microsoft and educational institutions on how to integrate technology in pedagogically sound ways
  • Be an advocate at conferences, events and trainings for how Microsoft technology can improve learning

Get started with 4 easy steps:

  1. Review program commitments
  2. Join the Microsoft Educator Network (MSEN) and complete your profile
  3. Submit a learning activity . Learning activities are typically project-based or inquiry-based activities that exemplify the use of 21st century teaching practices.
  4. Send an email to your region's email address per the instructions on the Educator Network with a link to your profile and a link to your learning activity on the Microsoft Educator Network before October 15th, 2014.

Thank you for your commitment to teaching and learning. We look forward to your innovative learning ideas!
