Each year, Microsoft selects MIE Experts to be part of an exclusive global community that is paving the way for their peers to share ideas, try new approaches and learn from each other. This year, Microsoft selected more than 800 thought leaders in innovative learning who possess technology and desire to amplify their reach and voice and as the school library technology specialist, I am fortunate and thrilled to be one of them!!! I have been recognized by Microsoft as global leader in using technology to increase productivity and transform education for my excellence in using technology to help students learn and achieve more – and ultimately succeed in a mobile-first, cloud-first world.
