The best educators are the most innovative thinkers in the world and we want to build on that innovation to help every student succeed. Our goal is to empower every teacher with the tools and resources to understand and engage every student at their own pace, in the right place, and in a way that allows them to achieve their greatest potential.
For students to be successful in tomorrow’s world they must develop higher-order thinking skills that will propel them forward. Microsoft’s Innovative Educator Program enables educators to use technology effectively in their classrooms in order to develop these 21st century skills. Educators gain critical skills through professional development that accelerates their innovative teaching. They connect with others around the globe, in one of the world’s largest online educator communities. And the most innovative educators are recognized and celebrated around the world through the Partners in Learning Network.
