Whether you’re discovering the event for the first time or simply looking to rewatch a session you already attended, there’s plenty more E2 to explore:
- Day 1: We kicked off the event with a welcome address by Anthony Salcito, Vice President of Microsoft Education, followed by a keynote from Dr. Jackie Sanderlin, author of The “Why Not?” Challenge: Say “Yes!” to Success With Community-School Partnerships. Dr. Jackie talked about the importance of educators feeling empowered to be the best version of themselves to inspire young scholars.
- Day 2: After hearing from special guest, Andreas Schleicher, Director for the Directorate of Education and Skills, attendees were able to choose their own professional development path for the day. This included a wide range of sessions covering everything from student-centered learning to career development, all led by Microsoft Innovative Educator (MIE) Experts or Microsoft Showcase School leaders.
- Day 3: Following the announcement of the Tech for Good Challenge winners, our guest speakers closed the event by sharing how being a part of the E2 community has helped them become the changemakers they are today.
