Genius Hour in the Classroom

Because every learner deserves the opportunity to pursue their passion and purpose during the school day.

Genius Hour Academy - A Professional Learning Experience

The 6 Ps of Genius Hour: A Framework for Implementing Passion Projects in the Classroom

Genius Hour changed everything in my classroom.  I had lost every bit of my passion for teaching.  I was preparing to leave education and had decided that I had no idea how to engage today's learners and make learning meaningful. Then it happened, I learned about Genius Hour, took a risk, and EVERYTHING changed.  

My classroom became a place that I wanted to be, it became a place that my learners wanted to be, and most importantly, it became a place that real learning happened.  

If you and your learners need something different, you have to give Genius Hour a try.  When done well, it has the potential to help learners make connections and practice life-ready skills as they learn by doing.
