Part One: Introduction

In part one of the workshop, I ask participants to share the story of a photo they have stored on their phones.

Part Two: Unveiling Passion

In part two of the workshop, I ask participants to share what they would do if they didn’t have to work as a way to explore tapping into personal interest.

Part Three: Genius Hour

In part three of the workshop, I describe Genius Hour – seventeen hours per semester for students to embark on a learning journey of their choice.
