We're excited to announce that our first TweetMeet of the new year will be on the important topic of Student Privacy and Security. We'll be addressing this crucial issue with some very special partners: MediaSmarts, an organization that promotes Digital and media literacy in Canada. The experts from their team will be on-hand to share their expertise on the ways that teachers and parents can support students as they navigate the digital world, and especially how educators can help safeguard their learning experience.
If the digital world is an integral part of your students' lives, you don't want to miss this chat! Join the conversation by following the hashtag #MSFTEduChat on Tuesday, January 8th at 7:00 PM EST, and share your questions, concerns, ideas, and insights.
What are #MSFTEduChat Canada TweetMeets?
Every month, Microsoft in Education Canada organizes a social event on Twitter for Canadian educators. The hashtag we use is #MSFTEduChat. A team of topic-specialists prepares and hosts these TweetMeets together. They craft questions around a certain topic and share them on Twitter, then our digital attendees strike up a conversation around the topic.
All you have to do is keep an eye on that hashtag and contribute any insights, ideas, or expertise to the conversation. Or you can just listen in. It's a great way to connect and learn!
The easiest way to keep on top of the conversation is by using TweetDeck. Our friend Marjolein Hoekstra created a quick tutorial to help her OneNote Education TweetMeet attendees. It's a great resource to help you follow the hashtag #MSFTEduChat during the conversation.
We can't wait to connect with Canadian educators during our Student Privacy and Security TweetMeet. Join us on Twitter on Tuesday, January 8th at 7:00 PM EDT. If you have any questions, connect with the Microsoft in Education Canada team on Twitter by sending a Twitter message to @MicrosoftEduCA.
We'll see you at the chat!
