Watch Anthony Salcito’s 2014 Global Forum Keynote Speech

It’s hard to believe that it’s already been a month since the Microsoft in Education Global Forum in Barcelona. Since that time, we’ve shared some incredible stories from the Forum. We’ve featured a guest blog from Todd La Vogue (a Microsoft Expert Educator and Global Forum winner), we’ve showcased the students from ESADE and who brought their unique and important perspective and energy, we’ve shared The Pitch competition, and of course, announced all the winners.

Today, I’m excited to share my full opening keynote speech from the event.  

As I noted in my speech, the Global Forum plays host to some of the greatest educators in the world. It is this elite, special community of teachers, school leaders and innovators that is transforming education. They are pushing traditional boundaries and discovering new ways to innovate through technology. They inspire me – and all of us at Microsoft — each and every day.

And while I do love to share my view on the future of learning – and of course demo the latest apps from Microsoft and our partners – the true magic of the Global Forum is in the connections that are forged at this incredible event. If you were not able to be at the Global Forum in person, this is a great way to share in the spirit of the Global Forum, and the incredible, powerful work that takes place in every corner of the globe to provide students with the education they need to succeed in the 21st century. 

I hope you watch this keynote, and then let me know your thoughts. What are you most excited about? What do you plan to do to make a change – even a small one – in your community?  Tell me @AnthonySalcito. Thank you!
