6 Principles Of Genius Hour In The Classroom

6 Principles Of Genius Hour In The Classroom | Studying Teaching and Learning |

Genius Hour in the classroom is an approach to learning built around student curiosity, self-directed learning, and passion-based work.

As a learning model, it promotes inquiry, research, creativity, and self-directed learning.

"They need backup," acknowledged Cindy Johanson, executive director of the George Lucas Educational Foundation (GLEF) and Edutopia.
