As VP of education for Microsoft, Anthony Salcito works with schools, universities, and educators around the world to help classrooms get the technology they need. And with so many schools in need of fresh technology, we thought Anthony would make an excellent judge of the Our School Needs contest.

Over the past two decades, Anthony has accomplished a lot while working at Microsoft. He helped launch the U.S. Partners in Learning program in 2003, which has helped more than 8 million teachers in 114 countries connect, collaborate, create, and share with one another. He also played a major role in creating the School of the Future - a high-tech high school in Philadelphia that now serves as a blueprint for Microsoft's worldwide Innovative Schools program. He also created the Microsoft Technology Friends Network, which links IT professionals and developers to schools and nonprofits to donate their technical expertise to aid with technology support.

Currently, Anthony oversees the global execution of Microsoft's vision for education - including the Our School Needs contest. To learn more about what he's been up to, check out his blog.
