This lesson was inspired from an old Policy that Google implemented for their employees. They allowed them one day each week, to work on personal projects, which led to the creation of some pretty amazing things.
How I apply it in my classroom. I usually only use this concept in my advanced classes. My classes meet every other day, so I give them 20% time on Fridays, which happens once every two weeks.
The goal of the project is to allow students autonomy and to encourage them to go deep in one certain area that really interests them and inspires them.
