Top U.S. education innovators named

Microsoft Partners in Learning has announced the winning educators selected at the 2011 US Innovative Education Forum (IEF).

The nine outstanding projects focus on literacy, STEM learning (science, technology, engineering and math) and entrepreneurship using multimedia such as video and gaming. A complete list of the winning projects and descriptions from the US IEF can be found on the TeachTec blog.

The IEF offers an opportunity for teachers to network and collaborate with their peers, while sharing best-practices on using technology to transform their classroom, school and district. The winning teachers will represent the U.S. and advance to the Partners in Learning Global Forum in Washington D.C. this November, where they will have the chance to collaborate and compete with educators from over 70 countries.
