For this week’s MIEE TV blog post we’re going to take a look at some of content from the latest edition of the MIE Minute newsletter, sent out to members of the Microsoft Innovative Educator community earlier this week. As well as the three shareable items from the newsletter that we normally feature in these posts, we are also able to include details of a Tweetmeet hosted by one of the Microsoft team members behind two of our most popular applications within education.

This is an opportunity for educators and school leaders to interact with the creator of both OneNote and Sway. Wonderfully innovative, ineffably approachable, and incredibly passionate about education, Chris has been with Microsoft for 20 years and is responsible for some of the most innovative tools used in schools today. The Tweetmeet will be taking place on Tuesday 7th July at 5pm GMT (9am PST), and using the hashtag #MSFTEdu, you’ll have an opportunity to ask him questions (Tweet to @ChrisPr), get insights on his journey in tech and education.
