  12. 12. Why did Microsoft launch the Educator Expert Program? In Microsoft we believe that technology, by itself, cannot provide students with the required abilities for the 21st century.

Microsoft believes in the power of the educator and the impact that they can have when joined together and are recognized by their achievements. Do Microsoft Educator Experts attend Partners in Learning Global Forum? Yes, once they are selected, Microsoft Educator Experts have the opportunity to travel with all expenses paid to the Partners in Learning Global Forum.

As for attending the forum and accommodation and transportation expenses, you should talk to the Academic Programs Local Manager to understand what can and cannot be covered. What is the deadline to apply? Applications can be submitted until September 30, 2013.
  14. 14. Is it possible to fill applications out in languages other than English? Yes, you may fill the application in your own language.
