Partners in Learning Global Forum 2012
Microsoft Partners in Learning celebrates the world’s most innovative educators and school leaders for bringing technology to life in the classroom and impacting millions of students.
Microsoft Partners in Learning hosts national and regional events throughout the year that recognize innovative educators and school leaders. These competitions culminate in the Partners in Learning Global Forum.
This year’s Global Forum will take place in Prague, Czech Republic from November 28 – December 1, 2012. The Global Forum – with the theme, “Your ideas matter” – will bring together more than 500 of the most innovative teachers, school leaders, education leaders, and government officials from 75 countries.
The best of worldwide education
Teachers who attend the forum are global finalists who have made it through a progressively selective competition that started with more than 250,000 participants and national events. They will compete for one of 18 global Innovative Educator Awards.
This year we will choose a new cohort of 60 Pathfinder and 30 Mentor Schools to join the Partners in Learning for Schools program through a rigorous application and evaluation process. School leaders receive a year of intense engagement and mentoring from education experts and other school leaders, helping them begin a journey of transformation at their schools.
