All the teachers who attended the event were selected from those who participated in the yearly Microsoft Innovative Teacher competition held all over the world every year. During the event in Redmond they were exposed to a week of amazing speakers and collaborative projects using different Microsoft products. They shared many experiences with their peers on how to integrate technology and education in ways that improve learning outcomes and equip students for the world of work. In the webinar they each shared some of their highlights with us – a truly amazing week! ( Prior to this event a different four teachers from South Africa attended a similar Microsoft Global Forum in Dubai in February this year. In South Africa the Microsoft Innovative Teacher competition is facilitated by SchoolNet. )
