Session Detail

Utilizing Genius Hour to Make Learning Meaningful

What if students could learn by exploring their passions?  What if we gave them time to produce, create, and make while still learning the standards?  In this session, I will share specific strategies to implement Genius Hour into any classroom.  I will also share technology tools that will make Genius Hour meaningful for students and manageable for teachers.  

Important Session Information:

This learning experience will be virtual. The morning (9:00 am - 12:00 pm) will involve connecting via Zoom as we share and learn together.  The afternoon will be an opportunity for educators to reflect, plan and collaborate what implementation might look like in a specific content area or with a specific grade level.   

G/T and Enhanced Curriculum Co-op members attend at no additional fee.
