Last November, more than 700 school leaders, educators, and reporters gathered in Washington, D.C., to celebrate the promise of innovative teaching and project learning to change global future. The event was the Microsoft Partners in Learning Global Forum, and its purpose was for educators worldwide to connect, learn, and collaborate on some of the most exciting innovations in education, particularly in the use of technology. In many cases, the teachers who come to the forum have never left their home country before, have never stepped out of their villages, have never gotten on an airplane. The result is "an amazing global community of teachers," says Anthony Salcito, vice president of education for Microsoft. From a virtual travel agency to a school-based music studio to a real-world advertising pitch, the ideas highlighted, from seven amazing teachers, represent inspired teaching at its best. The author also suggests ways a teacher can bring innovation to his/her own classroom.
