Not Doing Genius Hour!
1.What is the point of doing genius hour?
"During genius hour students of all levels are empowered to explore their own passions. Discover how to transform your classroom into a place where students want to come in and learn." But from my point of view is that this project is a waste of time. We all know a little about our passion. People said that
2.What does genius hour teach us?
Well you might say genius hour teaches us more about our passion that we might not know much about, and I know it could but we could all find out what we want to know on our own time. I think it is a big waste of our time. Also genius hour puts more stress on all the kids when we still have work and other school work to on.
3.Why does google use genius hour?
"The search-engine giant, Google, allows it’s engineers to spend 20% of their time to work on any pet project that they want. The idea is very simple. Allow people to work on something that interests them, and productivity will go up. Google’s policy has worked so well that it has been said that 50% of Google’s projects have been created during this creative time period. Ever heard of Gmail or Google News? These projects are creations by passionate developers that blossomed from their their 20-time projects".I think genius hour that was created by Google was a big mistake. Google has a lot of good things but this is not one of them. Lots of the kids agree with me . They are just doing the project for a good grade . Google should let there workers explore new things with genius hour because they invented it. Teachers should NOT let there students do genius hour though . Genius hour just puts more stress on the students. You may say that it will do the same for the workers . But the workers invented genius hour.So if they invented genius hour they should use it . Most kids would not like this idea because we have work at school and at home and we would not like to have more work. I think it's a very bad idea and I would not like genius hour to stay around .
