In 2009 I started an adventure with Microsoft’s Partners in Learning by submitting a Virtual Classroom Tour exploring the use of Twitter, Pirates and Somalia. I really enjoy working with the Microsoft Education team as they are focused on learning and the opportunities have been excellent. I’m very proud and humbled to be selected.
Today, I received the news that I have been asked to become part of the first cohort of Expert Educators, one of ten in the UK. The Expert Educator Program is Microsoft's exclusive one-year program created to recognize pioneer educators globally who are using technology to transform education. On a yearly basis the program celebrates renowned educators out of who some are selected to be part of this exclusive global community of visionary leaders who are paving the way for their peers by demonstrating the effective use of technology for better learning and student outcomes.
250 Expert Educators from around the world will come together in March in Barcelona for the Global Forum. I’m really looking forward to learning lots from others and to sharing how technology can be used to enhance learning.
You can find out more by visiting the Microsoft Education Blog. I’ll be sharing the adventure here.
