The 2014 Microsoft in Education Global Forum is fast approaching, and we are very excited. Not only is the Global Forum the best education event of the year; it’s also life-changing for everyone who attends.

The Global Forum recognises and celebrates the achievements of  educators and school leaders who are on the leading edge of education innovation, paving the way for their peers in the use of technology to improve learning and student outcomes. The forum will bring together winners from the Microsoft Expert Educators Programme and the Microsoft Mentor Schools Programme, along with government officials, press, education leaders, sponsor and partners for a once-in-a-lifetime, energetic and collaborative conference. The event will be attended by more than 1,000 innovators from 97 countries. In other words, it’s a big deal. And it’s made exceptional by the amazing and inspiring educators who take part in the conference, generously sharing what they’ve learned to change education for the better around the globe.

Microsoft New Zealand is proud to announce that Theresa Bosch from Baradene College and Steve Martin from Howick College will attend the Global Forum, as part of being selected to take part in the Microsoft Expert Educator Programme.

We'll keep you updated on the exciting happenings at the forum, but you can also follow along on Twitter through #MicrosoftGF and #MSExpertEducator. Not long to go now!
