Are you going to share you slides?
Rosalina Blanco
24:58
I plan on practicing G.H. on my 7 year old
Denise Krebs
28:37
Yes, good point! WE have started enough new websites. I'm trying to keep sticking with the ones we know.
Gallit Zvi
31:01
I’m looking through the chat and seems a lot of folks have their chat set to just talk to the panelists…you can change it to all attendees so that everyone can see your message!
Kimberly Belleisle
31:34
How did the two of you handle not having the support from teaching partners, colleagues or even admin?
Gallit Zvi
33:03
I haven’t had that problem, Kimberly. But knowing your why and being clear about it would be the first step for me. Check out @joykirr’s live binder too…she has lots on this topic!
Gallit Zvi

Gallit Zvi
33:22
Yes! We will share the slides and recording
Gallit Zvi
33:44
Karen, lots of resources are on our website: www.geniushourguide.org
Tammy Massman
37:48
How often and how long do you do Genius Hour? (example 1x/week for 1 hour)
Kimberly Belleisle
38:12
They need to learn how to make videos!
Kimberly Belleisle
39:01
Watch baking shows and get ideas from other experts! Then put your own spin on it and create your own cooking or baking show :}
Gallit Zvi
39:53
When we are at school, we do GH once a week for about 1.5 hours. I have gone between 1-2 hours per week
Gallit Zvi
40:21
And we try to chose a Tues-Thurs since we miss so many Mondays and Fridays…they don’t like missing GH!
Cheryl Herron
40:55
How do you handle it when one or more students have completed their project and others are still working?
Cathy Robey
42:25
What could happen is that more questions arise from their original question and then they can work on a new project for the new question
Denise Krebs
42:47
Yes, definitely, Cathy! They continure.
Jaimarie Nelson
43:37
Do you celebrate progress if kids never come to completion (like the writing a novel idea)
Lindsey Bailey
43:41
How can you motivate students to take their time and dig deeper? I have some students who want to finish the first day.
Tammy Massman
44:03
Gallit, I'd like to know more about how you use blogging with your students. What do you use? How often? Topics? You can email me since it doesn't fall into this topic. tmassman@webster-city.k12.ia.us
Cathy Robey
45:05
I want the blogging info also...sounds interesting!
Jaimarie Nelson
46:26
Sharing out went ending a project is for good reflection and growth mindset lessons.
Tammy Massman
47:33
Do you know if you can use Weebly with iPads now?
Denise Krebs
48:51
Yes, Margo! Definitely. Also the speaking and listening, presenting, viewing standards. Reading, writing.
Jaimarie Nelson
49:21
I like how you put some of that on the kids to share out further. I alway feel the burden of that.
Laura Koll
50:16
Tammy M.: There is a Weebly app for iPads now.
Tammy Massman
50:33
Thank you, Laura!
Gallit Zvi
51:27
As far as I know you can blog from the weebly app on the iPad but you can’t update the rest of the website. My students prefer computers for this though…they rarely use the iPads actually…always go for the laptops, unless they need to make a movie or use a specific app.
Kathryn Joyce
52:44
Do you find that the Question Step works better for elementary school students than a “Pitch?"
Michelle Nystel

I am new to Flipgrid but I love it. Such a great tool.
Elisa Waingort
53:07
Presenting on FlipGrid is a great idea.
Denise Krebs
53:12
Live meetings, of course! I forgot.
Kimberly Belleisle
53:14
Google Meet
Elisa Waingort
53:21
Yes, @Michelle, Seesaw.
Denise Krebs
53:29
We are not allowed to have synchronous meetings, so I'm out of touch.
Andi McNair
53:47
Don’t forget to use #GHVS2020 and #geniushour to share your learning!
Catherine Townsend
54:00
Each student's video can be placed in a Google slide show for the whole class
Elisa Waingort
54:25
@Denise, you can't have synchronous meetings?? Can you call students and their families?
Denise Krebs
54:26
#arsgeniushour is a place you can see some of our projects!
Leslie Nimeth
54:26
Yes Catherine, that’s how I shared students’ April projects.
Sue Mayo
54:38
The google slide is nice idea.
Kimberly Belleisle
55:34
True learning happens in the reflection!
Kathryn Joyce
56:04
I love this!!
Jaimarie Nelson
56:22
https://tonyv.neocities.org/reflect.html This is a great link that Andi always shares for reflection.
Denise Krebs
56:31
Yes, Kimberly! John Dewey would be proud!
Kimberly Belleisle
56:56
We do not learn from experience... we learn from reflecting on experience. Lol
Elisa Waingort
56:58
I like that you don't have them do all of the parts of the rubric and that you give them choice. It could be tied to any goals they hae.
Elisha Barnett
57:04
Can you share in chat the Self Assessment link? PLEASE!
Denise Krebs

THANK YOU!!! Love it!
Michelle Nystel
58:25
How do you grade? This seems very subjective.
Cathy Robey
58:30
I love the simplicity of this process, especially for those just starting and for elementary students
Gallit Zvi
58:56
The rubric might be overwhelming for home learning if they haven’t see it before…so a 2 question approach would work really well for learning from home!!
Kimberly Belleisle
59:58
I never grade genius hour. Growth is the focus.
Cathy Robey
01:00:19
I am fortunate that my school doesn't require that I give grades for my st
Cathy Robey

STEM classes
Gallit Zvi
01:00:37
I am also very fortunate the my district doesn’t use grading anymore for elem school.
Kimberly Belleisle
01:00:42
Love having them grade themselves
Gallit Zvi
01:00:46
We focus on descriptive feedback!
