October’s #MSFTEduChat TweetMeet gets you ready to go global with #skypeathon

In celebration of the 48-hr Skype-a-Thon event beginning on November 13, our 22 educators and experts are going the extra (virtual) mile and preparing a new #MSFTEduChat TweetMeet on Global Collaboration. Paired with the resources made by our Skype in the Classroom team, this event will help you prepare your students to travel far and wide and learn everything in-between during Skype-a-Thon.

You can join our special #MSFTEduChat TweetMeet on Tuesday, October 16, at 10:00 a.m. PDT (check your time zone here) and start absorbing ideas from our hosts – they’re well-seasoned travelers as far as Skype-a-Thon goes! (Sounds great, but what’s a TweetMeet?)

In the spirit of collaboration across continents, we have 3 brand-new language tracks this month: Русский (Russian), বাংলা (Bangla) and 日本語 (Japanese). We also offer Español (Spanish), Français (French), Italiano (Italian), Polski (Polish), Português (Portuguese), Svenska (Swedish),اللغة العربية   (Arabic), sprski (Serbian), Tiếng Việt (Vietnamese), Deutsch (German) and Nederlands (Dutch).

For each language track, we have one or more hosts to post the translated questions and respond to educators. As always, we’re super grateful to all current and former hosts who are collaborating closely to provide this service.

The #TweetMeetXX hashtags for non-English languages are to be used together with #MSFTEduChat so that everyone can find the conversations back in their own language. For example: French-speaking people use the combination #TweetMeetFR #MSFTEduChat. English-speaking educators may all use #MSFTEduChat on its own.


Our #MSFTEduChat TweetMeet is getting ready to go 'round the globe with Skype-a-Thon. Join us on Tuesday, Oct. 16 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. PDT. #skypeathon #globaledClick To Tweet

Why join the #MSFTEduChat TweetMeets?


TweetMeets are monthly recurring Twitter conversations about themes relevant to educators, facilitated by Microsoft Education. The purpose of these events is to help professionals in education to learn from each other and inspire their students while they are preparing for their future. The TweetMeets also nurture personal learning networks among educators from across the globe.

We’re grateful to have a support group made up exclusively of former TweetMeet hosts, who volunteer to translate communication and check the quality of our questions and promotional materials. They also help identify the best candidates for future events, provide relevant resources, promote the events among their networks, and, in general, cheer everybody on.


When and how can I join?


Join us Tuesday, October 16 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. PDT on Twitter using the hashtags #MSFTEduChat, #skypeathon, #globaled and #MicrosoftEDU (which you can always use to stay in touch with us). To find the event time for your specific location, use this time zone announcer.

From our monthly surveys we know that you may be in class at event time, busy doing other things or maybe even asleep – well, no problem! All educators are most welcome to join after the event. Simply take a look at the questions below and respond to these at a day and time that suit you best. You can also schedule your tweets in advance. In that case, be sure to quote the entire question and mention the hashtag #MSFTEduChat, so that everyone knows the right question and conversation to which you are responding.

Our TweetMeet hosts have also assembled a great Flipgrid to help – and don’t forget that you can add your own video as well.
