TrendDTeacher logging in from Palm Springs, CA-- the home of #cue18!
Started my day with the impressive Meredith Walker and her story about "Getting Your Hair Wet" and the creation of Amy Poehler's Smart Girls. She was an inspiring start to the day and even though my first few sessions were so jam-packed I couldn't get in, I arrived early to Kristina Allison's "Blogging: Painlessly Prodding Students Into Authentic Writing." I secured a seat and chatted her up about Genius Hour, which for me, has certainly been a journey. My students have done so well with the abstract idea of creating their own "something" and learning all about it, I will only know how it went after I see presentations. Next year should see some improvement, and I will log in later with more on this presentation!
