Empower Hour is an hour dedicated to empowering students to drive their own learning. It's a chance to follow their passions and ideas through projects of their own choice. The TV was thought of by a 14 year old and the and the ice-pole was created by an 11 year old. Imagine what our students could do with their ideas. And believe me, they have a lot of them.
Students get to choose how they learn as well. They might watch a youtube video, email an expert or even find an expert in the classroom. They might do an online course or they might just learn by doing.
Teachers work alongside the students making connections to the learning that takes place in every day classes.
The results.... students are engaged, their wanting to learn and they are seeing the point.
