Thank you, Karen!

Sally Cope

Karen is a great facilitator and mentor. She takes time to ensure you really understand and addresses any issues. Thank you Karen. Look forward to working with you more.

Lesli Grant

Karen is a key reason I am still here. Genius U’s wonderful complexity can challenge some of us. Karen’s clarity and continued mapping of key places, documents and how to navigate has found me jumping in and “inspired to find”. Lesli Grant

Has anyone explored "There's an app for that"? The site currently lists over 13,000 AI apps for all sorts of categories. I discovered the 'School Librarian' section that lists job tasks and against each the number of apps designed to support the task. Overwhelming and fascinating!

School Librarian - There Are 6,194 AIs For That Job

There are 6,194 AIs and 694 AI-assisted tasks for School Librarians. View the full list and take your productivity to the next level.

It’s common for teachers, after students do an individual exploration (for example: reading a short text and marking it up for keywords or questions), to ask them to form groups and compile their thinking on poster paper, which they share with classmates through a gallery walk. Why not try to create a collaborative slide deck where each group takes ownership of their slide and then this becomes a living document.

Using Collaborative Slide Decks to Promote Engagement

With a little bit of prep, teachers can set up a digital version of the popular gallery walk to foster collaboration in the classroom.

Are you tired of feeling like the 'drill sergeant' constantly reminding your child to complete their school work? I've just finished recording a masterclass on using intrinsic motivation to help tweens and teens become more self-directed learners who can take the initiative to set their personal learning goals. Let me know if you'd like to get the link to the recording by sending me a message or comment below - "Send me the link please".

One of the keys to personalising learning for your kids is to get to know how they learn at their best. Understand their genius. What great feedback from Cassie, especially on identifying the different genius types for her girls. Yes, I do believe everyone is a genius. I'm thinking of natural talents, skills and capabilities. Also, making the connection to the origin of the word 'genius'. Two Latin terms - Genii (guiding spirit) and Ingenium (innate dispositions, talents, and inborn nature). This blends the concepts of the divine and the talented
