Genius Hour is the hot new way to get students involved in your classroom with Project Based Learning, by utilizing technology, and by letting students control their learning and creation. Learn to develop and research a question for just a few minutes of each class period that leads to a culminating project and presentation. Teachers will leave with ready-to-use Genius Hour documents they can modify to fit their classrooms as needed, they will learn about the why and how of Genius Hour, and above all they'll gain knowledge about increasing student achievement and critical thinking through the use of Genius Hour.
