Calling all innovative teachers! Apply to be a Microsoft Innovative Educator: Expert

Submitted by Megan Rademeyer
Teachers from South Africa and Lesotho are invited to apply to be Microsoft Innovative Educator: Experts to stand a chance of winning a trip to the Partners in Learning Global Forum. To do this you will need to fill in the online application form and upload a learning activity which includes a two-minute video describing how you used technology to enhance a lesson or project to the Partners in Learning Network.

From the applications that are received by 3 June 2013, fifteen teachers will be selected to attend the SchoolNet SA ICT in the Classroom conference that is being held in Bloemfontein from 2 – 4 July 2013. At this conference these fifteen teachers will have an opportunity to share their learning activities, network with like-minded teachers, and learn more about using technology to enhance teaching. Later in the year, at least one of these fifteen teachers will be selected to attend the Global Partners in Learning Forum which will be taking place in a not-yet-decided international destination in March or April 2014.

The final closing date for Microsoft Innovative Educator: Expert applications has been extended to 30 September 2013. This means that teachers who apply after 3 June 2013 are still eligible to win a trip to the Global Partners in Learning Forum even if they did not have an opportunity to attend the SchoolNet SA conference. We look forward to seeing the creative and engaging learning activities that South African and Lesotho teachers have developed, and seeing our most innovative teachers being recognized for their hard work and creativity.
