Hello All! Here is a link to the Fulbright project I completed while in Finland last semester. It is a website all about project-based learning and Genius Hour. I would love to discuss phenomenon-based learning (a type of inquiry) and passion projects with any interested teachers or schools. Thanks! www.pbltoolkit.weebly.com

Greetings from Finland! I am spending three and a half months in Finland on a Fulbright grant to learn about the nation's education system, and project-based learning in particular. I hope my research will be further advocate for 20Time in our schools. I have been meeting with EdTech's, university professors, policymakers, and I get to visit Finnish schools on a weekly basis.

I've done 20 Time in my 8th grade Career and Life Planning class for 3 semesters now (It is just a semester class). I'm struggling and frustrated with several aspects of it that I have considered not doing it again. However, it is such a valuable thing that I can't seem to let it go. I would like to arrange a visit with another middle school where I can see it in action. I live in Kansas and would like somewhere nearby but could possibly persuade my district to send me farther. Does anyone know of a middle school teacher that might be willing to have an observer?

I am a 7th grade science teacher... Just had a "Genius Hour" PD last week. Starting today with my Honors kiddos to test it out first as "Genius Hour Fridays" for every Friday and then will start it with my general students. Any tips for a newbie???

Launched 20time last Friday with my 10th grade English class and tomorrow will be the bad idea factory.

My 10th grade Gifted students are currently in the middle of a semester-long 20 time project. They did one last year so they have experience, but same issues persist for some (motivation, focus, collaboration...getting traffic on their blogs).

Is anyone else currently involved in 20 time and looking for other students who are blogging? I'd like to get more traffic and feedback to their blogs so they can grow their social network.

Please let me know and I'll send a master list of blog addresses. I'll have my students reply to a number of blogs on your end, and you can do the same.

Thanks.
