Genius hour is a movement that allows students to explore their own passions and encourages creativity in the classroom. It provides students a choice in what they learn during a set period of time during school. Following structured guidelines and deadlines, students have autonomy to research, design, create and finally display and share their passion project. Genius Hour provides students with authentic thinking and learning and is a great platform for developing creativity, dispositional thinking and life-long learners.
