Have you turned on the music? #20Time

As I watched the clip on Friday, I was struck with a question,

How many teachers turn the music on for their students?

My students have been working on their 20 Time projects for a couple of months now and I can see, for many of them, the music is on every Friday. They are all smiles as they explore their passion projects, write on their blogs and comment on others. 

I have a young girl who wants to create a fashion app, but was distressed because it was going to be too expensive to hire someone to code it for her. I took a few minutes to sit down and show her some websites on coding and told her she could learn to do it herself. She is pumped to be coding and has pledged to become a hacker by the end of the year. :-)

Other students are diving deeper into their projects are are starting to see some results from their hard work. They are finally over the first hump of 20 Time and can really start to appreciate the hard work they are putting in for their projects. 

I am happy to say that 20 Time has turned the music on in my classroom and my students are dancing. 

Are you going to turn the music on for your students?
