Welcome to our Microsoft Innovative Educator Experts!

We would like to extend a special welcome to our new Microsoft Innovative Educator (MIE) Experts!

New Zealand now has 58 MIE Experts! This is a real testament to the outstanding work that New Zealand teachers are doing with technology innovation in their classrooms. We are looking forward to working with this outstanding group of educators throughout 2016. 

The Microsoft Innovative Educator (MIE) Expert program is an exclusive program created to recognise global educator visionaries who are using technology to pave the way for their peers for better learning and student outcomes. MIE Experts work closely with Microsoft to lead innovation in education. They advocate and share their thoughts on the effective use of technology in education with peers and policy makers. They provide insight for Microsoft on new products and tools for education, and they exchange best practices as they work together to promote innovation in teaching and learning. You can read more about the MIE Expert Program in this Sway.

This year, we will have over 3,700 Microsoft Innovative Educator Experts around the globe. About 800 of our MIE Experts can be found inside our 400 Microsoft Showcase Schools.

If you would like to become a MIE Expert in 2017, applications will be open from April - June 2016. Stay tuned for more information!
