Genius people are of great demand in all places which means people with
exceptional intelligence, creative mind, brilliant and exceptional skill in a
particular area.
Every one is genius in one or other thing but many are unaware about it as they
are not allowed to explore their passion with the education system that prevails.
When one does a work or study a thing
according to his/her interest/passion
surely it will be a great success. Here
comes the importance of “Genius Hour”.
“If you are working on something exciting that you really care about, you
don't have to be pushed. The vision pulls you.” - Steve Jobs
Genius Hour was first introduced by Google to its
engineers where they are allowed to spend 20%
of their time to work on projects in which they are
more interested and passionate.
This has resulted in increased productivity and
main thing to be noted is that about 50% of
Google’s projects have been created in this time
period.
Many organizations have adopted the same.
This is a nice idea to be implemented in education.
In education, Genius Hour is a student-
driven learning where students are
allowed to explore their passion and
learn interested topics.
This will enhance the learning ability of
students and enable them to think
beyond the curriculum.
Students will be able to think on their own,
do their own research, rise questions and
get into a conclusion for producing an
effective result.
The mentor/ teacher has to make sure that
the session enable the students to learn
joyfully.
Teachers need to guide and converse with
students who have trouble in creating and
producing a concept or a thing to stimulate the
creativity in them.
Students has to be encouraged to create,
explore, solve problem and construct their own
learning in Genius Hour.
It is a creative time period where students
are permitted to think and perform an action
independently for gaining better output.
The freedom given to the students motivates them to
explore innovative ideas and take ownership of their
learning which means they can become life long
learners.
Practicing Genius Hour in classroom will make students
enthusiastic.
Why can’t you try it for your students?
