The closing of the annual Microsoft in Education Global Forum coincided with one of its highlights: the Global Forum Educator Awards. Six projects that focused on transforming teaching will share $50,000 under the new Pitch awards.
All six will be incorporated in YouthSpark on Global Giving to help them continue raising funds for their ideas. More details about the projects can be found on the Microsoft Citizenship blog.
Winners hail from Macedonia, Malaysia, El Salvador, Finland and Egypt in categories such as collaboration, critical thinking and “teacher as change agent.”
