Learners Preparing for the Challenges of Tomorrow
Genius Hour

Student Centered learning has been enshrined in many of the new curriculum ideals. Allowing students to explore their own learning process while being supported by their teachers is being used across the province. Many Districts, like Surrey and Comox, have adopted a process called Genius Hour. The idea came from Google who allows their employees to use 20% of their time to work on any project that peeks their interest. This process has worked so well that proportedly 50% of Googles projects have roots in this process!
