#HewlettListens Tweet Chat Themes

Ideas for how grantmakers can support educators who strive to continually improve their teaching practice and foster deeper learning in the classroom.




We're spending 2018 talking to people to understand what has worked and where we could do better in our grantmaking.

Our program director, Kent McGuire, talks about who we’re hoping to hear from, what we are hoping to learn, and why education matters to him.

A tweet chat is a conversation that takes place on Twitter on a specific date and time. 

Everyone participating in the conversation uses the same hashtag (#HewlettListens) in their tweets. To make it easier to follow along, use Twitter or a tool like Tweetdeck or Hootsuite.

The host will pose questions on Twitter. These tweets will start Q1, Q2, and so on. You then answer the questions by posting a tweet that starts A1, A2, and so on, and also includes the hashtag. At any point, you can ask us questions about our education strategy refresh. Share your ideas and questions at any time — just be sure to use the #HewlettListens hashtag in your tweets.
