Genius Hour

Genius Hour Unit 3: The Pitch

You want to “sell” your idea in a creative and interesting way. Think about this as a commercial for your idea that unveils your genius plan! You will have 1-2 minutes.

Include the following:

  • Your name
  • Reasons you chose the project (story, history, definition, interest, etc.)
  • Materials/resources/technology tools needed
  • First three steps to get started
  • Obstacles you may face in the process
  • Explain how the project enhances learning.

Your presentation may be formatted in one of the following ways:

  • A Prezi, Google Slide presentation, Adobe Spark Video, iMovie or i Movie trailer, or another digital format that is at least 60 seconds, but no longer than 2 minutes
  • Minimum of 6 slides but maximum of 10 slides. Use the bullets for items to include as a guide.

TEC21 Challenges

1. Develop and incorporate a digital assessment activity to use with your students in a lesson or unit you’ll be teaching before we meet again in January.

2. During the week of December 9–15, have your students join millions of students around the world by participating in an “Hour of Code” (An awesome activity to engage your students in during the craziness of December.)

3. Post to TEC21 Educators Group on Facebook. It can be a comment, an answer to someone’s question, a resource, a picture of you teaching and/or your students learning, or a sample of a digital assessment you used with your students.

4. Be a resource–an inspiration–to one of your colleagues.

5.  Registration for the TEC21 Workshop Program for the 2020/2021 school year opens on January 2, 2020. Please encourage a fellow teacher to join us next year! Share with them the value of connecting with other Lutheran school teachers and the impact it’s had on you and your students. Thank you in advance for supporting our mission and vision and being an ambassador for TEC21 whenever you can! #TEC21lcms #LutheranSchoolsThrive #LuthEd
