Microsoft Achieve 2013: EduTech Family Summit - 1/26/13 @ UMASS BOSTON - pre-registration required

Microsoft Achieve 2013: EduTech Family Summit, in collaboration with BATEC and YouthSpark, invite you to join us and explore how we can best support our students in their quest for academic and career success by using innovative technology to learn and achieve. We're expecting over 2,000 students, educators, community leaders and local government representatives to participate in this exciting one-day event at University of Massachusetts Boston on Saturday, January 26th!

We know education is a journey that opens doors for students. It connects them with exciting careers where they have the power to change their lives, our communities, and the world. But how do we help our students tap into creativity, innovation and productivity in our classrooms to earn that degree, start that career and make it happen? And how do we ensure they achieve their full potential?

At the Boston EduTech Family Summit, we will discuss how using technologies like Microsoft Windows, Office 365, SkyDrive, Bing, Skype in the Classroom, and Kinect enhance not only what our students learn but how they learn. Also discover how Microsoft's Partners in Learning Network and the Innovative Educators program support making our classrooms dynamic and fun learning environments that increase student engagement.  

Our theme for the Summit is Achieve. Our keynote speaker, Victor Ortiz-a protégé of Oscar de La Hoya and one of the brightest stars in boxing today-exemplifies what it means to Achieve. Overcoming a difficult childhood, Victor aims to inspire, mentor and support our youth to believe they can achieve great things.

We want you to be part of the summit and make your voice heard. Don't miss out! 

Microsoft will be offering special event prizes to social media friends, so join the conversation on Twitter at #Achieve2013 and follow Microsoft at @Microsoft_EDU.
