Microsoft’s mission is to empower every person and organization on the planet to achieve more – and students are at the very heart of that mission.
We are committed to partnering with educators on their journey to redefine learning. Core to our mission is creating immersive and inclusive learning experiences that inspire lifelong learning. For students, these experiences stimulate the development of essential life skills like communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity. And as our economies and societies become more and more digital, computational thinking becomes of paramount importance. We are empowering educators to create environments in and out of the classroom that guide and nurture student passions, and enable students to achieve beyond their greatest imaginations – making, designing, inventing, building the future.
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.
