Announcing monthly educator “#OneNoteQ TweetMeets” in partnership with OneNote Central

Today, the OneNote Education team (@OneNoteEDU) and our partners are pleased to announce monthly “#OneNoteQ TweetMeets” for educators. These monthly events will include our incredible community of MIE Experts (#MIEExpert), Partner Product Experts (including @OneNoteC) and our Microsoft in Education engineering team.

#OneNoteQ TweetMeets will be hosted on the first Tuesday of every month beginning August 2. TweetMeets will be held live on Twitter in close partnership with OneNote Central (@OneNoteC) at 10 a.m. PDT and again at 4 p.m. PDT.

Marjolein Hoekstra, OneNote expert behind the independent OneNote Central channel on Twitter (@OneNoteC) and initiator of the OneNote Community Notebook, will collaborate with our OneNoteEDU social team to capture educator questions, provide input for TweetMeet agendas and help guide the conversation. Marjolein will also help to recap the #OneNoteQ TweetMeets in a Docs.com Collection after each monthly event.

The Microsoft in Education team is consistently amazed by the expertise, knowledge and insights our partners and educators have for our products. These events are just one way we want to connect, engage and amplify our most powerful users in our effort to empower every student on the planet to achieve more.

About Marjolein Hoekstra

TweetMeet 3My first steps with OneNote started six years ago when I needed a new home for my digital notes. The following years, OneNote’s organizational features helped me greatly during my university studies in Chinese language and culture. I started using OneNote for different purposes, resulting in multiple personal knowledge bases. Before too long I also found myself making notes about tips and tricks on effectively using the OneNote program itself.

Passionate about the product, I soon decided to set up OneNote Central @OneNoteC, a dedicated Twitter account where I could share all those tips, resources and news bytes with the OneNote community. This initiative clearly caught on and Microsoft awarded me as an MVP. OneNote Central has come to complement my work as a OneNote trainer and allows me to connect daily with many power users. Your stories on how OneNote makes you thrive are a true inspiration. I now look forward to engaging with you even more as Microsoft Partner Product Expert.
