Students Creating with their Genius.

In this episode of My Disney Class podcast, Howie and Ryan share their Passion Based Classroom projects. This is part 3 of the 3 part series on Passion / Genius hour projects.  Come along with us as we wrap up this series on the magic behind allowing students to pursue their passion, to create, to problem solve, and to make mistakes without fear.

 

To start us off Ryan continues his discussion on what 20% time looks like in his classroom.  He shares pictures of his students during various stages of the project and explains what they are doing in each one.  We also address concerns in meeting curriculum requirements and classroom discipline.

 

In the second half of the show, Howie shares his PBL-STEM Project : "Imagineering Classrooms" Design a Theme Park Attraction.  Listen and find out how to get a FREE copy of his e-Book.
