Our TweetMeet time zone announcer – updated each month – lets you check event times for your country.


Discussion questions

We’ll discuss five questions. Now is a good time to start preparing your answers:
Q1. What does well-being in teaching and learning mean to you?
Q2. In what ways can educators discover their students' emotions?
Q3. How does an empathic and resilient classroom look like? Share an experience.
Q4. What social-emotional tools and resources encourage student engagement?
Q5. What are your top tips for educators to maintain their emotional balance?


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.
