Each year, Microsoft selects innovative educators to share ideas, try new approaches and learn from each other as a global community dedicated to improving student outcomes through technology.

As an MIE Expert, educators build their 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; and be an advocate for conferences, events, and training programs on how Microsoft technology can improve learning.

“Microsoft Innovative Educator Experts are inspiring examples of educators applying new ways of teaching and learning in their classrooms that motivate students and empower them to achieve more,” said Microsoft’s vice-president for worldwide education Anthony Salcito. “We celebrate and support the work they do every day!"

Interested educators may join the Microsoft Educators Community to learn more and grow professionally, exchange ideas, make connections globally, and earn international recognition.
