Summertime is for relaxing and reconnecting with family and friends. It is a time to hit the beach, go hiking or do whatever it is that you do to clear your mind and energize your spirit. But it is also a great time to read books on education, catch up on some blogs (reading and writing), and connect with folks on Twitter about educational topics of interest to you.
Hopefully you have been getting in some great R&R, but you probably have also been doing some learning. Right? So have we! We love reading new books over the summer, and of course, we are always keen to check out new posts about what folks have been doing with Genius Hour and what their plans for next year’s Genius Hour blocks are.
Since together we are smarter, we thought it would be a good time of year to compile some of our learning into one space. Please join in by answering the following in a comment below:
- What are the best ideas you have learned this summer that you will use during Genius Hour this upcoming school year?
Please share your learning and any links that you think would benefit the Genius Hour community, especially if you have any recent Genius Hour blog posts you’ve written. If you have a twitter ID, please add that too so that we can credit you if we bring up your idea(s) in one of our future #geniushour chats (our next chat is on Thursday, August 3rd at 6 pm pacific/8 pm central/9 pm eastern).
Thank you in advance for sharing your ideas with the Genius Hour community. And don’t be shy with your ideas! Remember, what is obvious to you may be amazing to others.
