South Florida Educators Chat About Genius Hour

Gallit and I enjoyed chatting with South Florida Educators at their weekly chat on Thursday, February 11. (Or Friday morning, February 12, in Arabia Standard Time.)

It was a great conversation with passionate educator-leaders from many schools and districts in Florida. I met a lot of new folks and enjoyed hearing how they are transforming education for their students.

Here is a visual recap (via Tagxedo) of our questions and answers, along with a few of my favorite tweets of the night.

What do students love about Genius Hour?

Thanks to the #SoFlEdChat tribe for the great chat!
