Genius Hour Presentation from #edcampwaller

I presented a session on genius hour at #edcampwaller on 4/27/13.  The presentation is a step by step process of how to implement genius hour into your classes.  The presentation hits the highlights of all my genius hour blog posts and answers just about every question that you may have about genius hour.  If any other questions come up I’d love to continue the conversation in the comments section.

My only regret is that I was a little more prepared with some resources like the Livebinders link and that never got back around to dropping some names of other fantastic Genius Hour teachers.  I don’t want to leave anyone out with a list here, but you can find all of them at the hashtag #geniushour on Twitter.  You can also look through the genius hour blogs list

Enjoy!

    Hi Chris, great information- love the concept of Genius Hour and believe educators are on to something big here. I have recently been reading the information you have provided and others and am curious to know if there is information out there on “school-wide” implementation? I’ve notice several individual classes have success- any entire schools doing this? I will be principal at a new HS in MA and we have built into our schedule 1hour every other week where kids and teachers are free for about 1hour. My vision is to make this a Genius hour school wide. Also considering allowing our teachers to have their own Genius time if I can schedule that correctly. Please advise.
