As Vice President of Education for Microsoft Corporation’s Worldwide Public Sector, my role is to oversee the worldwide execution of Microsoft’s vision for education, in addition to its partnership and technology outreach efforts. Having started at Microsoft in 1992, I’ve had the opportunity to aid in the launch of several successful education programs and partnerships such as the Microsoft Educator Network, as well as actively lead Microsoft’s efforts to support and increase technology’s role in the classroom.With the modern workplace constantly evolving, so too should our classrooms – and technology integration is absolutely crucial in this matter. I believe it has the power to tap into student potential and provide them with the tools they’ll need to be successful in our technology-centric job market. Technology has the ability to impact learning environments and enhance student achievement, and after working closely with education institutions and partners around the globe, I’ve witnessed first hand how transformative technology can be.
This is an exciting time for education. I’ve been inspired by the great leadership and innovation I’ve seen, and this blog is meant to serve as a celebration of these achievements. My hope is that this blog will also serve as an inspiration for you so that you can continue to make a real impact in your own learning environments. So please, have a look around. And thank you for joining me on this journey to reshape the future of learning.
