Genius Hour Chat Archive with Paul Solarz – 5 December 2019
Paul Solarz (@PaulSolarz), author of Learn Like a Pirate, led us in a lively discussion tonight. His questions had us comparing Project Based Learning and the learning that occurs in Genius Hour. The questions and discussion were both instructive and energizing.
Participants included these veterans and new #geniushour chat folks: Tim Riley, Allen Kaye, Faige Meller, Kimberly Donatello, Toby Coleman, Gretchen Dorn, Kristen Koppers, Renee Reedhardt, Stella Pollard, Stephanie Chambers, Tammy Massman, Jessica Alderman, Aaron Cole, Gallit Zvi, Denise Krebs and our moderator Paul Solarz.
As always, we also appreciate our friends who chime in later like Renee White, Valerie Lees, and Jill Canillas Daley.
