Really great learning happens when things get a little messy. As a homeroom teacher, I like that. But, there is a delicate balance between messy learning and learning that turns into a mess. My goal is to keep learning meaningful and fun for my students while also manageable for me. Though I was always pulled to Genius Hour, part of me felt pushed away from it at the same time. I knew my students would LOVE researching their interests, but my worry was that they would all miraculously have the same interest: Minecraft! I wanted my students to push past that to find an abundance of authentic interests, and in turn have meaningful learning experiences. Thrively helped me to do just that!
In the screencast below, I will share the benefits of using Thrively.com to successfully kickoff Genius Hour.
