Beaconhouse Teachers Selected as Finalists at the Microsoft Innovative Teachers Forum
The Microsoft Innovative Teachers’ Programme, a key component of Microsoft’s Partners in Learning (PiL) efforts, has connected a community of educators who share a common interest in enhancing teaching and learning through the use of technology.
The programme provides classroom learning and professional development resources. It also recognizes and rewards teachers who demonstrate exemplary use of technology in the classroom, with their peers, and for their own professional development and productivity. In this context, a national level competition was announced. After reviewing project submissions, fourteen short-listed finalists from all over Pakistan were selected to present at the Microsoft Innovative Teacher’s Forum.
