Microsoft announced the winners of the "2010 U.S. Innovative Education Forum," an event in its sixth year recognizing innovative teachers who creatively and effectively use technology in their curriculum to help improve the way students learn.

"Cheryl Arnett from Sunset Elementary School in Craig, Colo., and Rawya Shatila from Maskassed Khalil Shehab School in Beirut, Lebanon, won first place for their international collaboration. They'll go on to represent the United States at the Worldwide Innovative Education Forum in South Africa this fall, joining nearly 500 other teachers from 60 countries who won similar events in their regions," informs Microsoft.

The two teachers, who had never met before, used technologies such as wikis, blogs and online mapping tools to share stories and activities to help students increase global awareness of similarities and differences between children from different countries.
