  1. Hello Miss K and Class 6EK,

    Congratulations on your Genius Hr projects and all the other works you have have posted on the blog. What an array of interests and skills! Fantastic job. Well done.

    Looking forward to your hangout presentation this afternoon. However, I’m wondering if Miss K may be able to give us some pointers if it’s not too late… How do we actually watch/join the hangout? It is currently saying “no access to view” and I notice there are a few of us under “not responded”. Thanks for any help. Otherwise, hopefully it will become more obvious later as the hangout starts…

    Congrats again and all the best with your presentations!

    • In case it may be useful for anyone new to Google Hangout like me, I found that:
      (1) updating my profile on Google+ account guided me through the process of joining “circles” etc;
      (2) I could only answer the ques “Will you be watching?” within the “notices” section of the Event page; and
      (3) an App was required if using iPad, but Mac/PC was ok.

      I’m wondering though, is it essential to be listed under “watching” in order to view the broadcast? Or have others listed under “not responded” been able to view it too?

      We’re all learning! Thanks 🙂

  2. Hi 6 EK.
    Fantastic work with all of your Genius Hour presentations.
    I really enjoyed hearing about your research and I’ve learnt lots of new things.
    I think that you all presented your work very well.
    How did you feel speaking live to all of the viewers online?

  3. Dear 6EK,

    We loved watching your Genius Hour projects on Hangouts this afternoon. Thanks for presenting and allowing us to ask you a few questions. Your work was very inspiring! We love Genius Hour because it gives us choice in what we learn and to follow our interests, and we can see that you enjoy this as well. We hope that we will be able to show you some of our projects at the end of Term 2.
