Microsoft Certified Innovative Educator BadgeMicrosoft Innovative Educator (MIE) programs are designed to help educators move along a pathway from those who are just beginning to integrate Microsoft tools into the classroom to becoming leaders of innovation in education. Microsoft has developed these programs to recognize global educator visionaries who are using technology to pave the way for their peers for better learning and student outcomes. This is the first step on a journey of joining a professional learning network of enthusiastic educators who come together to learn, share, and grow.

Start your journey by becoming a Microsoft Innovative Educator. MIEs are educators that are using Microsoft tools in the classroom and have learned the fundamentals of some of these tools, such as Windows 10, Edge, OneDrive, Word online, PowerPoint online, Excel online, Sway, One Note, and OneNote Class Notebook. Participants will learn how to use the Office 365 applications for student collaboration and about 21st Century Learning Design to help set the foundation for technology integration in their classrooms.

To become a Microsoft Innovative Educator, you need to attend a 2 day, face-to-face training and join the Microsoft Educator Community. To register, please go to https://www.mylearningplan.com/mvc/login and search for Microsoft Academy. Upon completion, participants will receive a MIE certificate and digital badge.
