Rank #10: Radically Authentic Learning: How Classrooms Change When Student Genius Drives Learning

Podcast cover
Read more
If connecting learning to student's passions and interests is the master's skill of teaching, then a concept called "Genius Hour "may be the master stroke. Borrowed from Google's policy of allowing staff to spend 20% of their work week on the pet project of their choice, teachers are reporting profound changes in student engagement and student motivation where Genius Hour is used. Moreover, they are finding that the quality of learning is radically more authentic than learning driven solely by desire to get good grades.
