A group of finalists from 2011 U.S. IEF will be selected for the Worldwide Innovative Education Forum in Washington, D.C., Nov. 6-11, the software giant noted.
The teachers interested will need to complete the IEF application and submit it to the U.S. Partners in Learning IEF community. Microsoft underlines that the deadline for submissions to be accepted is May 15th, 2011, and in this regard, those interested in participating need to hurry.
A Microsoft spokesperson notes that no less than 100 participants will still be selected for the summer event at the Redmond campus. The company has already selected the first-round finalists that will attend the U.S. IEF event in July, no less than 29 teachers from 14 states across the US.
"The finalists must qualify for the event through a competitive application process and are selected based on project collaboration, knowledge building, extended learning beyond the classroom, and the use of Microsoft technology or technologies that support the project," the company explained.
