2014 Educators Workshop (15th - 16th April 2014)
Education can change the world. At Microsoft, they believe that education is the single most important investment in the future of individuals, communities, nations, and the world - that it is vital to sustainable social and economic success. It is also a fundamental human right. But the reality is that education globally faces a crisis; a crisis of resources, time, and support.
The CILL (formerly through VCILT) has been very active and engaged with Microsoft Indian Ocean Islands and French Pacific in capacity building endeavours for educators throughout the country at all levels. 35 Educators participated in a two-day training on the Microsoft PIL Network. The theme of the training was "Building Educator Capacity". The workshop was conducted at the University of Mauritius on 15-16th April 2014 and it was led by the VCILT team. The workshop was supported by Microsoft Indian Ocean and French Pacific once more. Two educators received a Windows phone offered by Microsoft through a lucky draw.
