Hi from Bremerton WA
erika from Spring, TX
STEM teacher in Doylestown, PA
Good morning, I'm from Clovis, CA
Cathy, Iowa, K-8 STEM teacher....so great to see my Twitter friends live!
Hello from Ontario Canada
Hi, Sault Ste. Marie Ontario Canada
Hello, Eastern NC K-8 title 1 school
As long as you are registered, you will receive a copy of the video. If you want the previous video, just make sure that you are registered. :)
Can people add their comments visible to attendees too?
Huntsville, AL (Rocket City!)
thank you, Kimberly! <3
you could use padlet
jamboard is great
Are you going to share you slides?
I plan on practicing G.H. on my 7 year old
Yes, good point! WE have started enough new websites. I'm trying to keep sticking with the ones we know.
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!
How did the two of you handle not having the support from teaching partners, colleagues or even admin?
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!
Yes! We will share the slides and recording
Karen, lots of resources are on our website: www.geniushourguide.org
How often and how long do you do Genius Hour? (example 1x/week for 1 hour)
They need to learn how to make videos!
Watch baking shows and get ideas from other experts! Then put your own spin on it and create your own cooking or baking show :}
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
And we try to chose a Tues-Thurs since we miss so many Mondays and Fridays…they don’t like missing GH!
How do you handle it when one or more students have completed their project and others are still working?
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
Yes, definitely, Cathy! They continure.
Do you celebrate progress if kids never come to completion (like the writing a novel idea)
How can you motivate students to take their time and dig deeper? I have some students who want to finish the first day.
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. firstname.lastname@example.org
I want the blogging info also...sounds interesting!
Sharing out went ending a project is for good reflection and growth mindset lessons.
Do you know if you can use Weebly with iPads now?
Yes, Margo! Definitely. Also the speaking and listening, presenting, viewing standards. Reading, writing.
I like how you put some of that on the kids to share out further. I alway feel the burden of that.
Tammy M.: There is a Weebly app for iPads now.
Thank you, Laura!
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.
Do you find that the Question Step works better for elementary school students than a “Pitch?"
I am new to Flipgrid but I love it. Such a great tool.
Presenting on FlipGrid is a great idea.
Live meetings, of course! I forgot.
Yes, @Michelle, Seesaw.
We are not allowed to have synchronous meetings, so I'm out of touch.
Don’t forget to use #GHVS2020 and #geniushour to share your learning!
Each student's video can be placed in a Google slide show for the whole class
@Denise, you can't have synchronous meetings?? Can you call students and their families?
#arsgeniushour is a place you can see some of our projects!
Yes Catherine, that’s how I shared students’ April projects.
The google slide is nice idea.
True learning happens in the reflection!
I love this!!
https://tonyv.neocities.org/reflect.html This is a great link that Andi always shares for reflection.
Yes, Kimberly! John Dewey would be proud!
We do not learn from experience... we learn from reflecting on experience. Lol
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.
Can you share in chat the Self Assessment link? PLEASE!
THANK YOU!!! Love it!
How do you grade? This seems very subjective.
I love the simplicity of this process, especially for those just starting and for elementary students
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!!
I never grade genius hour. Growth is the focus.
I am fortunate that my school doesn't require that I give grades for my st
I am also very fortunate the my district doesn’t use grading anymore for elem school.
Love having them grade themselves
We focus on descriptive feedback!
Helping to create self directed learners ❤️
Will you share your slides?
Thank you both for taking the time to present to us ladies! ❤️ ❤️ ❤️
I love the reflection parent feedback!
