Let’s have a global and multilingual conversation on Twitter to discuss Feedback and Motivation. How are you using Microsoft tools such as OneNote, Flipgrid, Forms, in addition to Microsoft Teams features such as Assignments, Praise and Insights to support your students in taking ownership of their learning? We’d also love to know which Microsoft Partner solutions and other edtech tools you use for this purpose.

Discussion questions 

We’ll discuss five questions. Now is a good time to start preparing your answers: 

Q1. What role do feedback and motivation play in education? 

Q2. What factors contribute to successful feedback? 

Q3. Which guidelines do you follow to provide motivational feedback? 

Q4. What types of feedback do you find more effective? 

Q5. Which tools do you recommend to motivate and give feedback to your students? 


What are TweetMeets at @TweetMeet? 

TweetMeets are monthly, global, and multilingual conversations on Twitter around a specific topic relevant for educators. TweetMeets are also slow chats, which means that if our event hours are less convenient for you, you can join the conversation at a later time that suits you best. 


How can I join? 

The main account to follow is @TweetMeet, where we publish tips, challenges, and resources. 


At event time, the @TweetMeet account will start publishing the five discussion questions 10 minutes apart. All participants can then respond to these questions from their perspective.
