Partners in Learning Innovative Educator Program (Microsoft)
Trainer Professional Development Program
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 (2-3) 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.
Seminar benefits ¬
In addition to learning new hands-on project-based, student-centered activities for K-12 classrooms, attendees will receive:
• Microsoft Innovative Educator certificate
• Free access to professional development curriculum for your use in your district
• Support from the Microsoft Partners in Learning Network community
• Eligibility for clock or credits hours (will vary by state)
What to Bring
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.
Before the workshop, please make sure you have:
• Registered for the Partners in Learning Network (PiLN), http://www.pil-network and join the Microsoft Teacher Trainers community discussion.
• If you do not have an active Windows Live ID, you will be connected to the site to sign-up for one before returning to the PiLN. Create a new email account or use your existing Hotmail, Messenger, or Xbox LIVE Windows Live ID account.
Continue the training
We’ve designed these seminars for teams of education professionals who teach or train other professionals. Each seminar attendee commits to:
• Attending a follow-up webinar with the seminar facilitator and other attendees.
• Delivering teacher professional development activities in the upcoming school year to between 100 and 500 teachers within your school, district or state based on content from this seminar.
• Contribute at least 3 teacher professional development best practices to the Partners in Learning Network, Microsoft Teacher Professional Development Community.
Each Microsoft Innovative Educator seminar will vary slightly. Coffee and juice in the morning and lunch will be provided, though public sector employees will need to provide a signed letter acknowledging they can accept these items due to federal gift-giving regulations. Details on this will be sent with your confirmation to the seminar.
