Genius Hour Video
What is "Genius Hour"?
Genius hour is a movement that allows students to explore their own passions and encourages creativity in the classroom. It provides students a choice in what they learn during a set period of time during school. (Source: http://www.geniushour.com)
The narrator, Chris, used a quote of mine with permission in the middle of this video (1:13 - 1:21).

While checking out the tweets of one of my Twitter colleagues, @MrsMorgansClass, I noticed that she used Remind to send out text messages or emails before each #2ndchat and so I decided to do the same for #5thchat. (Turns out it was @BevLadd who started the idea with #2ndchat.) Ben Brazeau blogged about doing the same for #sstlap here: http://timetravelingteach.weebly.com/sstlap/balancing-expectations-with-engagement
