  • Genius Hour begins August 18!

    Posted by Becky Ashe at 8/17/2014
    After empathizing and ideating with students, parents, and teachers last year we arrived at the prototype schedule that will kick off the test phase on Monday, August 18.  We're so excited to bring Genius Hour to the students and teachers of the L&N!
     
     Genius Hour is several things.  It is:
    • a direct response to students asking for a "brain break" and opportunities to participate in clubs even if they ride school buses,
    • a response to parents asking for teachers to be able to incorporate and share "passion" interests and projects to enrich students' lives,
    • a model based on a Google practice called "20%."  The idea is to encourage employees to spend 20% of their time on passion projects, this way when they return to their normal tasks, they are more energized and even more creative after stretching that other side of the brain for a spell,
    • an opportunity to bring the educational strategy of "Genius Hour" (look it up on Twitter) to our student body in their own way,
    • a way for us to offer small group tutoring and intervention to students who need it during the school day,
    • a chance to do test prep training for high stakes assessments like the ACT and SAT,
    • finally, a strategy to allow teachers to group by subject areas on a regular basis for their own content planning to enhance instruction.
    For all these reasons, we're looking forward to watching students "feed their genius" by participating in a variety of activities.  Does it look different from other schools?  Yes.  Does it require a level of maturity and accountability on the part of every student?  Yes.  Do we think our students are up to it?  YES YES!  Stay tuned for tweets and posts about how our grand experiment looks as we kick it off this week!

    Current Students

     

    All returning students and their parents may come from 10:00 – 11:30 a.m., 2:00 – 3:30 p.m., or 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. to receive their 11” MacBookAir for next year on the dates below for your grade level.  Students should bring an appropriate case or bag to protect your device to take it home.  Because you’ve successfully been issued and returned technology previously, a parent may pick up the device for you by attending; however, the student will be required to complete the orientation at another date in order to keep the device once school starts. 1 PARENT MUST ATTEND WITH EACH STUDENT.

    June 13 – Rising Seniors

    July 12 – Rising Juniors

    July 19 – Rising Sophomores

    July 25 – make up for anyone who missed your grade’s deployment date

    All Newly Enrolled Students AND their parents must attend a technology orientation. Each student will be issued an 11" MacBook Air at the orientation (in case you haven't already heard, we will no longer be using iPads). Students MUST bring an appropriate protective case, sleeve, or bag for the device to the orientation. Without a protective device, MacBook Airs will be dispensed when the student presents a case, sleeve, or bag.

    I WILL CANCEL ANY REGISTRATION FOR AUGUST FOR STUDENTS ATTENDING JULY 25. I WILL RELEASE SLOTS FOR THE 8TH AND 11TH TO TRY TO GET ALL AUG 16TH STUDENTS MOVED TO AN EARLIER DATE. I WILL NOTIFY THOSE REGISTERED FOR THE 16TH BY EMAIL.
