Genius Hour, or 20% time, is a concept that has been around since the mid 1900s. During this time, an employer—such as 3M® or Google™—allows their employees to focus on a passion related to their job for 20% of their work time.
This process proves to be an effective way to encourage creativity and innovation, and, as a result, many schools have adopted this concept to explore personalized, inquiry-based, and project-based learning.
