Marg joins forces with Microsoft
THE Hamilton and Alexandra College’s head of information services, Margaret Simkin, was recently selected from educators worldwide to be part of an innovative technology program.
The MIE, or Microsoft innovative educator expert program, has been created to recognise global educator visionaries who make use of technology to pave the way for their peers.
Of 6000 educators selected worldwide, nearly 90 of these are from Australia.
This is the first time that Ms Simkin, who is now in her 40th year of teaching, has been involved with the program.
As part of her application for involvement in the MIE, Ms Simkin was required to put together a two minute film clip, highlighting what she planned to do differently if selected.
