Celebrate your changemakers at Microsoft Education Exchange 2019

We are pleased to announce this year’s Microsoft Education Exchange (E2) event will be held in Paris, France, from April 3 through April 4, 2019, with the support of local and international governments.

According to the French Minister of Education, Najat Vallaud-Belkacem, “School needs to teach people that everyone is part of one community and that we are all free and equal.”

If you’re not familiar, E2 serves as an opportunity to come together and explore industry trends – including emerging technologies that support teaching, skills development, modern pedagogies, safe school environments, and predictive analytics that identify at-risk students. It’s a great event for invited education leaders who help transform today’s teaching systems into learning organizations. You have the chance to be at the event in Paris by participating in the MEA E2 competition below.
