"Educators are the ultimate source of empowerment ... Technology can help … but think about what the inspired teacher can do. Really,
someone who is active in teaching is the ultimate form of empowerment … in making a difference to the world.".
Microsoft was founded on the principle that people can do remarkable things when technology is within reach. Core to our mission is creating
immersive and inclusive experiences that inspire lifelong learning, stimulating development of essential life skills – communication,
collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, character, citizenship and computational thinking – and supporting educators in guiding and nurturing
student passions. We will empower students and educators to create and share in entirely new ways, to teach and learn through exploration, to
adapt to individual learning needs, so they can make, design, invent and build with technology that stays out of the way. At Microsoft, we
believe technology has the power to support learning transformation and be the trusted partner to help governments and nations around the
world to build a future ready workforce needed to fuel economies and entrepreneurship.
Join us in our mission of empowering the students of today to create the world of tomorrow.
