The Microsoft Innovative Educator (MIE) program provides trainers the opportunity to deepen and expand their skills on integrating technology in their teacher training to positively impact teaching and learning. MIE participants will leave the two-day event with tools and training materials that support engaging, hands-on professional development.
These seminars are designed for trainers who have responsibilities for training educators on the integration of technology in the classroom. It is encouraged to have small teams from schools and districts attend as there will be time set aside to develop a professional development action plan that can be used to train teachers how to incorporate Microsoft technologies into teaching and learning.
Teams attending should include those who have a responsibility for developing and/or implementing professional development in their district/region/state. Specifically, a strong team would include any combination of people representing education roles, including education technology director, curriculum integration specialist, administrator, teacher trainer, or master teacher leader.
In addition to learning new hands-on project-based, student-centered activities for K-12 classrooms, attendees will receive:
Seminars are held at Microsoft offices (unless indicated otherwise) and laptops will be available during the training. Attendees will be asked to share a best practice using a Microsoft tool (Office, Windows, or free tools) during the training.
