Recognized as global leader in using technology to transform education

Áslaug Björk Eggertsdóttir project manager at Menntasmiðja was announced as a Microsoft Innovative Educator (MIE) Expert joining the more than 5,600 educators in the MIE program worldwide. Each year, Microsoft selects innovative educator experts to share ideas, try new approaches and learn from each other through a global community dedicated to improving student outcomes through technology.

This is a great opportunity to learn more about different ways we can share and create information with everyone in the educational setting.

As an MIE Expert, educators build their capacity for using technology in both the classroom and curriculum to improve student learning, advise Microsoft and educational institutions on how to integrate technology in pedagogically sound ways and be an advocate at conferences, events and trainings for how Microsoft technology can improve learning.

“Microsoft Innovative Educator Experts are inspiring examples of educators applying new ways of teaching and learning in their classrooms that motivate students and empower them to achieve more,” said Anthony Salcito, vice president, Worldwide Education, Microsoft. “We celebrate and support the work they do every day!”

We invite you to also join our Microsoft Educator Community where you can learn and grow professionally, exchange ideas and learn from others, and make connections globally and earn recognition.
