On June 29, 2015 I had the pleasure of presenting at ISTE 2015. ISTE, or the International Society for Technology in Education, puts on a major conference every year. This most recent one was in Philadelphia, PA, and I was so excited to be able to share my Snapshot presentation on Genius Hour there.
Snapshots presentations are meant to be about 30 minutes long and provide quick overviews, or a snapshot, of an educational topic. I kicked off my presentation by sharing the picture book The Most Magnificent Thing – a great way to introduce students to the idea of independent learning. Then I discussed why Genius Hour is important and how teachers can introduce Genius Hour in their classrooms.
The lovely people at ISTE recorded the session and were kind enough to give us permission to present it here. After you’ve browsed the Genius Hour Guidebook site for a bit, check this out!
