This learning experience is for campuses and districts that want educators to be able to implement passion-based learning in the classroom with confidence. Below is a sample of what this academy might look like. This learning experience can be purchased as a 2 or 3-day package. These days can be consecutive or spread over time. It is fully customizable depending on the needs of the campus or district.
Day 1 will be an introduction to Genius Hour and the 6 Ps (Passion, Plan, Pitch, Project, Product, Presentation). Educators will experience technology tools that make Genius Hour both manageable and meaningful and begin thinking about what Genius Hour will look like in their classroom with their learners.
Day 2 will provide teachers with tools and ideas to take Genius Hour to the next level by gamifying the 6 Ps and making Benefit Mindset a priority. We will explore how to encourage learners to design projects that will make an impact and create change as well as address how and why the standards can and should be woven into Genius Hour.
If a campus or district opts for Day 3, I will stay on campus and be available for questions, coaching, and additional support. (You could also opt for this to happen on Day 2 if you would like to condense the training into two days.)
