Celebrating Educator Innovation – Microsoft Accepting Submissions For 2011 Innovative Education Forum


The 2011 U.S. Innovative Education Forum celebrates outstanding educators and schools using technology to positively impact student learning.

Show how you are engaging students in problem-solving, inspiring their creativity, and preparing them for life ahead, and you could be selected to attend the IEF event in Redmond, Washington, on July 28–29, 2011. Winners there will proceed to the 2011 Worldwide Innovative Education Forum in Washington, D.C., in November.

If your project is chosen, there is no fee to attend, and travel expenses for the events are supported by Microsoft. The deadline to apply is May 15, 2011.

Another fun option for entry is to create a video highlighting your project and its impact on student learning and submit it along with the application. They'll put it on the Microsoft edu YouTube channel, and the two videos receiving the most “Likes” will automatically be accepted to the U.S. IEF event.

Download the IEF application here (this is a Microsoft Word document). Click here to visit the 2011 IEF website and learn more, or download this FAQ document from Microsoft that provides answers to many questions about the program.


Hi Readers! Tomorrow (Thurs., Feb 3) at 2PM EST, I'll be the Keynote presenter in this Webinar presented by the College Open Textbooks Adopt-a-Workshop Campaign. My brief presentation, “5 Fun, Free Photo and Image Editing Applications for the Classroom” will open the 1 hour webinar. The session will later wrap up with Wayne Mackintosh, founding Director of the OER Foundation, presenting WikiEducator, global repository & tool for open educational resources. Please register and stop by and check it out. Hope to see you there!
