Genius Hour

Two weeks ago, Middle S started a new project: Genius Hour. Based on the concept of "20% time" (a google innovation), students are provided with an hour a week to learn about the things they are most passionate about. The idea is that this time improves students engagement and productivity.
Some students are designing and creating experiments or games, some are researching topics they are interested in. No matter what they are learning about and becoming genius' in, they are all expected to reflect on, record and share their learning - with the class and also with YOU.

On that topic, what do you like learning about the most??

  1. Fantastic way to learn Middle S. I will be interested to read your reflections.

  2. What a fun way to learn about all of the things that interest you!
    Can't wait to hear about the volcano.

  3. What a great way to spend time at school looking into and researching something that you are interested in. I am sure that you have all enjoyed being able to do this. I have enjoyed reading about Madeline's topic today. I really enjoy learning more about cooking and new ways of doing things. Sometimes I learn new things, find out quicker or easier ways of doing things or sometimes I just enjoy reading or learning about different types of food from different countries. Keep up the great work, Suzi
