  7. What is Genius Hour? The world needs you. Stop being boring! Boring is easy. It’s time to DO SOMETHIN’ • We were made to be awesome.

  8. What is Genius Hour? • Genius Hour is a time for you to learn about what interests YOU! • How will you Inspire others?

  9. Find Your Passion!

  10. Ask Yourself… • What do I want to learn more about? • What am I passionate about? • What makes me wonder?

  11. How does it work? • You can learn about anything you want! Any topic, any subject, any area. You Choose! • You will select something you are passionate about or want to learn about. • Formulate a question….ex. How to throw like a NFL quarterback, How does coding work? How can I create my own website?, How does technology affect the human body? • Your project needs to “have legs” – Cannot be something that can be answered by a quick google search. Needs to involve research, experiments, effort!

  12. How does it work? • You will have one period each week to work on your Genius Hour Project. • To keep me and your peers informed on your progress, you will also be tasked with writing a detailed blog post on your progress every second Monday. • Sometime in early December, you will share what you learned about your topic with our class.

  13. Okay Sounds G…Wait Sharing??? • Yes! You have to share. You will share your project with others. You will present what you have learned or created with your peers at the beginning of December. • What your sharing looks like will be up to you ex. Ted Talks, Power Point, Videos, Collage, Demonstration, Model etc.

  14. Wait…Say that again…How long do we have? • You will be starting your project next week and will have one class period each week to work on it. • You may choose to work on your project out of class as well, which is awesome! • We will be shooting for an early December end date for this project. • Don’t be sad! If this goes well, we will definitely be doing it again after Christmas!

  15. How will I be marked? • The whole focus of Genius Hour is on your personal journey of learning. You control your educational learning! This means that the end product will not be graded • Instead, you will be marked on your daily effort and your progress through your bi-weekly Blog Posts • You will also be given a mark each class based on your on-task behaviour in class. • All the responsibility is on you…

  16. So really…There is only one question left…

  17. What will YOU do that will make the world AWESOME?
