About the Microsoft Educator programs
Investing in teacher effectiveness is key to improving student learning. The impact of teacher quality outweighs the impact of any other school education program or policy. In fact, teacher effectiveness is the largest factor influencing student outcomes, outside of family background.
The ability and capacity of ALL teachers, leaders, and staff to continually transform their methods, adopt new technologies, and to continue as life-long learners are critical elements of education transformation. Microsoft has developed many resources for education leaders, educators, and staff.
The professional growth pathway is designed to help teachers and school leaders everywhere become proficient in Microsoft technologies and learn more innovative classroom skills with fun, guided, hands-on content that's specific to their role and goals.
