Episode 9 Recap

Yesterday's episode was the most jam packed one yet! Fortunately, if you missed out, I highly recommend that you enjoy this snowy day by hearing all about Genius Hour from the awesome Billy Corcoran from Loranger School in Old Orchard Beach. He is a powerhouse educator who is well known on Twitter.

We did juggle a few things around and shift some of the tools on our list to next month's agenda. But we did talk briefly about Seesaw's student driven portfolios before we wrapped up. We had a viewer last month request demos of the tools we talk about. I'm on it! I plan to have one up on our YouTube channel and posted here on Monday.

Check out episode 9 below and scroll down a bit further to check out of agenda from this week's episode. Thanks again, Billy, for coming on and hanging out with us!
