Microsoft’s Partners in Learning announced a strategic partnership, called “Shout,” with the Smithsonian Institution and TakingITGlobal at the 6th annual Worldwide Innovative Education Forum (IEF). This worldwide finale is the culmination of a year’s worth of country and regional events, during which 125 teacher finalists were selected from more than 200,000 to present their innovative teaching practices at this year’s IEF, taking place in Cape Town.
The partnership is designed to encourage teachers to use technology to help students explore, connect and act to address some of the world’s most pressing environmental issues, while gaining important skills such as collaboration, critical thinking and social responsibility. Over three years, Microsoft and its partners will make a commitment of more than $1 million to engage and empower a global network of millions of teachers and students coming together to address environmental issues affecting land, air and water.
