Over 2,000 UAE teachers join ‘Microsoft Innovative Educator Experts’ rank

UAE educators make up one in 10 out of 20,000 worldwide

Microsoft has announced that 2,013 educators from the UAE are now Microsoft Innovative Educator (MIE) Experts, compared to 323 last year – a more than six-fold growth.

This year’s UAE educators make up the lion’s share of the MIE Expert programme, with one in 10 out of 20,000 featured worldwide.

This MIE Expert programme focuses on improving student learning through technology.

The growth in the UAE’s MIE Experts is in line with a broader trend of an increase in applications for the programme around the globe. The response in the UAE was strong, following year-long awareness-raising through Microsoft Edudays events, and face to face and virtual training carried out throughout the country. This provided solid footing for remote learning in the UAE.

“With the challenges that Covid-19 has presented for all our communities, educators have become more vital than ever. At a time of great reimagining and change, they help to reshape our world by imparting knowledge and expertise” said Ahmed Ameen Ashour, education director, Microsoft UAE.

“These educators will lead the transformation of teaching in the new era- and achieve better learning outcomes.”

These experts advise Microsoft and educational institutions on how to integrate technology in pedagogically sound ways and be an advocate for how Microsoft technology can improve learning.
