Yesterday, September 15th was International Dot Day – a day to inspire creativity globally. http://www.thedotclub.org/dotday/ Today our grade 3’s and one of the classes in Kindergarten (our Tech Buddies) are going to be participating in Dot Day activities. My colleague @K5_RP introduced me to Dot Day over the Summer. She tweeted me “We need to do this!” Coincidentally this meshes so well with the Genius Time concept. When I heard about Dot Day I knew instantly I wanted to have my class participate and it was before I had even heard of #geniushour. Perhaps, it was reading about this event and following @DotClubConnect that opened my mind to the concept of following your passions and letting creativity direct you. That’s really what Genius Time is.
Anyway, look for more updates later today. Happy Dot Day and maybe try it out this week. Because as it says on the International Dot Day website,
Guess what? Dot Day is every day you honor courage and creativity.
