MIE Trainer Academy – 2-Day


Microsoft Innovative Educator (MIE) Trainer Academy, is designed for teacher trainers and those who are responsible for training educators on the integration of technology in the classroom. The goal is to provide trainers exposure to the many Microsoft technologies and resources that support student-centered learning based on authentic problems and projects.

The overall intent is to introduce trainers to the training materials through hands-on activities and conversation so that trainers may enable teachers to get more out of the Microsoft products they have today and take advantage of the many free tools available to students and educators. This program is fast-paced, covering content at a deeper level than the 1-day MIE Teacher Academy.
