#20 Time Round 2 #EdChat #GaETC

Another year and another great adventure in 20 Time. Last year, I was not sure if I wanted to do 20 Time again because I was so exhausted and I was worried I would never be able to recreate the environment where my students excelled. After the first marking period passed, I am so excited to see what my students are planning on doing.

I used TodaysMeet to have students share what their projects were and then we could all talk about them in class. It is a little change to the process I took last year and it worked well. The students had a bit of a harder time choosing their projects this year and I was worried about the commitment the students would have to the project, but I gave them a bit more time and they came up with some great projects.

They will have their first blog posts up next week and I will share those out. What I learned over the summer and at the start of the year by talking to students who did 20 Time was that they loved having others read their blog and connect with them. It was great to hear that and I look forward to sharing their work and seeing the connections that can be made.

Thanks for all of the support everyone and I'll keep you posted on how all of this goes.
