Genius Hour: Reasons & resources for bringing passion-driven learning into your curriculum

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Why take time out for students to own the learning? You'll have time during this workshop to explore resources and plan for time in your classroom or school for students to pursue their passions. We'll figure out specific ways to tackle any obstacles together.
Participants will gain:
A better understanding of just what Genius Hour IS and is NOT
Links to resources to begin Genius Hour, help struggling students, and projects that have been completed
Connections to teachers who are already using this type of learning in their classrooms.
