Background & Overview

Genius Hour is an opportunity for learners to apply what they’ve learned while making an impact on the world around them.

 

Passion-based learning provides an opportunity for learners to not only apply standards, but also practice life-ready and social-emotional skills.

This institute will equip participants with knowledge and skills to answer the following questions:

  • What is Genius Hour and why is it important?

  • How can I implement Genius Hour in a way that is both manageable and meaningful?

Topics Covered

  • The 6 P's - Passion, Pitch, Plan, Project, Product, and Presentation, that make the Genius Hour process  manageable for educators and meaningful for students.

  • Technology tools for each of the 6 P's and practical ideas regarding outside experts and weaving the standards into each project.
