Don your capes, fasten your seat belts and get your keyboards ready: It’s time for another #MSFTEduChat! In our Feb. 21st TweetMeet, we’ll tackle 21st-Century Learning with the help of five amazing hosts. We’ll be lucky enough to be joined by Mette Hauch, Pip Cleaves, Jason Holt, Martha Jez, and Melanie LeJeune. They’ll be sharing how the fast pace of technology has changed the landscape and learning opportunities in their classrooms.
Follow our TweetMeet with #MSFTEduChat on Feb. 21st at 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. PST to learn, share, collaborate, and tweet up a storm. We’ll be discussing key 21st-Century Learning objectives such as self-regulation, real-world problem solving, skilled communication and collaboration, and much more!
Educators have given us great feedback to refine our TweetMeets, which is why we’re providing the questions in advance. You can prepare your answers ahead of time, watch for questions you’d like answered, or send the list to a colleague – either way, we hope to see you there!
