K-12 Education Transformation Framework

The Microsoft Education Transformation Framework is a guide for education leaders to navigate the complexity of transformation impacting every aspect of their mission. It facilitates the process of envisioning what’s possible and developing a strategy to achieve it.

The growing role of education as the engine of economic change makes the work happening to transform our schools and classrooms fundamental to global progress. For me it starts with mindset. We need to first inspire students to embrace a limitless future and to see their learning as purposeful to what they can make and do.
