Become A Microsoft Pathfinder School in the Innovative Schools Program
ERAC members can now apply to become part of the Innovative Schools Pathfinder Program and we would love to see a BC school on this exclusive list of technology leaders! Every day education leaders face the challenge of engaging and inspiring their students. The rapidly changing nature of technology and the impact of our connected world require transforming teaching, learning and assessment practices. The goal of the schools participating in the Microsoft Partners in Learning Innovative Schools Pathfinder Program is to foster a culture of innovation and system-level change at their schools, in a manner that helps teachers prepare students for the realities of life and work in the twenty-first century.
A new contest was announced February 21st, 2011. Microsoft is looking for innovative schools around the world. If your school is interested in being part of that network, you will find all the information on this web site: http://www.partnersinlearningnetwork.com
Applications will be accepted until May 30, 2011, with final selections announced by June 30, 2011. Schools leaders from selected schools must be available to attend the Partners in Learning Worldwide Innovative Education Forum held November 8-12, 2011 in Washington, D.C.
