#Geniushour Chat Archive with Guest Host Dave Quinn, 6 December 2018

Dave Quinn (@EduQuinn) was our guest host tonight on the #Geniushour chat. Dave is a PhD candidate at the University of Rhode Island, researching the experiences of teachers who facilitate Genius Hour with middle and high school students. Dave came with compelling questions and the participants kept up a lively discussion. The archive just has the Q&As, so if you want to read more, follow the conversations on individual tweets.

Besides our host Dave, we had a lot of others who kept the conversation going. Some new #geniushour friends (at least to me) were: Mary Alicia Lyons, Garreth Heidt, Mrs. Sizemore, Virginia Cares, and Amy Borio. Veteran Genius Hour community members were Andi McNair, Jill Canillas Dailey, Jennifer Barnes, and your moderators Gallit Zvi and Denise Krebs.

Here are a couple of questions where we would like to continue the conversation and help one another:

  • Q4 What’s one personal or structural challenge that you feel we might need to address as a #GeniusHour community?
  • Q6 What recommendations would you make to teachers who are just beginning the #GeniusHour process?

If you have anything to add to these questions, let’s keep talking. Please add your thoughts to the comments section below.
