Genius Hour - where your students passion comes to life! Genius hour is a time where the students are able to explore, research and create their own activity/product/idea based on what they are deeply passionate about.
It is self-directed project based learning experience. Students are given 20% of their weekly learning time (equates to about an hour over the 5 days) to pursue personally meaningful projects that utilise their strengths and teach their own weaknesses. They will exercise critical thinking skills and create exciting new products to improve life or raise awareness.
This needs to be introduced effectively so that the students know exactly what is expected. This PowerPoint is an introduction to Genius Hour, carefully explaining what it's all about and steps that need to be take. It gives the 'rules' they need to follow and opportunity to discuss with the students what this means for them.
Lesson Plans, resources, assessments will be shared shortly - keep an eye out!
