Congratulations–Our 10 Microsoft UK Innovative Education Award Winners


We are pleased to announce the  10 UK Innovative Education Award Winners who will be presented with their awards, as recognition of their Innovative Teacher status, at our Education Forum in Manchester. (There are still a few places left. sign up HERE ). They join an ever increasing group of UK Innovative Teachers, that include Dan Roberts, Ollie Bray, Alessio Bernardelli, David Rogers and of course our latest worldwide event winner Jan Webb.

Judging such great projects always proves to be a very difficult and challenging exercise. The standard and quality of every one of the entries illustrates the outstanding work being undertaken in schools throughout the UK.  They also show the outstanding progress being made in classrooms throughout the UK in integrating technology effectively into learning. They represent some of the best uses of technology across a wide range of different schools and scenarios.

    Well done to all of the successful innovative teachers.  But well done also to the Microsoft UK Education team whose efforts have made all this possible!

    These prestigious awards involve hours of scrutiny of the submissions from innovative teachers around the UK, preceded by weeks of stimulating and encouraging teachers to value their own work and accept that it is good enough to share with others.

    So – congratulations all round!  Now for the celebrations at IEF10!
