The global Skype-a-Thon event is almost here, so we’re having no fewer than 16 Skype Master Teachers come together on November 21 to help everyone participate. Skype-a-Thon shows what can happen when students bring their ideas and passions together, no matter where their classrooms are. Through sharing stories and projects, playing games, and collaborating on similar subjects, we hope to lay the path for the next generation of upstanding global citizens.
Our Skype Master Teachers will be hosting the #MSFTEduChat TweetMeet, sharing their advice on how to connect your classroom with guest speakers, students and other classrooms from all over the world – and even with product experts from Microsoft. Our goal is to empower global classroom collaboration with Skype in the Classroom to open hearts and open minds for all students. (Ok, but what’s a TweetMeet?)
Our #MSFTEduChat TweetMeet is on Tuesday, November 21st from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. PST. Check event times for your location.
Whether you’re a Skype in the Classroom expert or just learning about the potential of connecting your class using the Microsoft Educator Community, our community of Skype Master Teachers, global educators and MIE Experts are here to share their tips, resources and experiences with you, live on Twitter.

Every month Microsoft Education organizes social events on Twitter targeted at educators globally. The hashtag we use is #MSFTEduChat.

Then, before the event, they share these questions on social media. Combined with a range of resources, a blog post and background information about the events, this allows all participants to prepare themselves to the full. Afterwards we make an archive available of the most notable tweets and resources shared during the event.
