To highlight the importance of entrepreneurship, education and technology in achieving positive social change, Microsoft and the British Council would like to recognize three outstanding Young Education Leaders from around the world who have contributed significantly to the development of globally awareness and globally competitive young people through the innovative use of technology.
We are looking for individuals who have made an impact in solving a non-commercial problem within the education space, using Information and Communications Technology not only within their institution but also at a wider, more systemic level – either nationally or internationally.
The three finalists will be celebrated at an Education Leaders Briefing, taking place alongside Microsoft’s Partners in Learning Global Forum in November, 2012, the Education World Forum ministers conference and linked Education Leaders Briefing, and will also be invited to participate in a study tour in the UK, organized by the British Council. We will also involve them in PR and Social outreach. In addition to that the best ten applications will be eligible to an online course on Social Entrepreneurship through Taking it Global; one of the leading organizations around social entrepreneurship and education.
