Director of Innovation and Learning Technology Dean Pearman and Junior Years Teacher Georgina Bishop have both recently been selected again as Microsoft Innovative Educator Experts, joining more than 7600 educators in the MIE Expert program worldwide. Each year, Microsoft selects innovative educators to share ideas, try new approaches and learn from each other as a global community dedicated to improving student outcomes through technology.
As MIE Experts, Dean for the third year and Georgina for the second year running continue to build their capacity to use technology in both the classroom and curriculum to improve student learning. They are both inspired by the opportunity to transform teaching and learning, harnessing technology to help students achieve their full potential.
“Microsoft Innovative Educator Experts are inspiring examples of educators applying new ways of teaching and learning in their classrooms that motivate students and empower them to achieve more,” said Anthony Salcito, Vice President, Worldwide Education, Microsoft.
Students at Peninsula Grammar learn by doing, engaging in various activities together that seek to develop the noncognitive skills of creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, communication, problem finding and solving. Technology is a great leveller — it doesn’t discriminate, it empowers all learners to do things they couldn’t do before. Peninsula Grammar seamlessly integrates technology into the classroom environment so students can continue to learn, grow and flourish.
