‘Becoming Global Changemakers’ is the topic of the next #MSFTEduChat. I’m excited to share that I have been invited to co-host this chat with a wonderful group of global changemakers! 🤩🎉
This is an activity I’m very passionate about and how we collaborate at Innovation Lab Schools by Take Action Global, the non-profits I volunteer for.
2020: Decade of Action!
2020 marks the beginning of a new Decade of Action. Now more than ever, we NEED to develop and mobilise as many changemakers as possible. Rather than get into the theme of global changemakers here though, I’ll leave that for the chat! 😊
What is #MSFTEduChat?
The #MSFTEduChat is a monthly global and multilingual TweetMeet (Twitter chat) facilitated by Microsoft Education and an invited group of educators. Each month has a different theme, relevant to educators. Even if you cannot attend a live facilitated chat, you can always catch up with the conversation later and contribute, using the hashtag #MSFTEduChat.
