Another Power Hour is in the books! This show was all about firsts. We talked to teachers using Google Classroom and CS First for the first time, and also heard how first time EdTech Coaches are rolling out Google Apps in their district. We learned the first thing we should do after uploading a video to YouTube and how to emulate ThingLink with Google Drawings.

Below is the video of the show and here is the agenda which includes links to the things we discussed.

We start crowdsourcing the agenda two weeks before the show and you can join #GEGNJ here even if you aren’t from New Jersey because not everyone can be perfect. See you for our last show before summer break on June 13th!

Until Next Time,

GLHF

Applying the Genius Hour in the Classroom

In the end, genius hour proves “genius” for motivating students to investigate and take ownership of their learning. It is easy to incorporate Personalized Learning, meeting students at their “just right” level and pace. It also compliments Inquiry Based Learning, as it uses a guiding question to lead the research.
