30-Day Blogging Challenge: Day 24: Passion, Choice, Voice and Creation

Day 24: Which learning trend captures your attention the most, and why?

I love Passion-Based Learning, Genius Hour and the Maker Movement.

Giving students voice and choice in their learning and having them create, innovate and share is so incredibly powerful.

I enjoy finding ways to creatively allow students to have choice in what and how they're learning, all while being accountable to the curriculum. When students own their learning questions, tasks and outcomes, they really realize that they matter. They see that their learning does not take place in the classroom only, but that they can be life-long passionate learners.


  1. "Long life passionate learning" what students really want to explore. They want to explore and own their learning through their personal journey too! I love that you give them a chance at passion based learning through Genius Hour.

  2. I also love these three trends, but am constantly looking at how to give students this control over their learning, while also linking the learning to the curriculum expectations. How do you do both? I'd love to know more about how you integrate these ideas into the classroom.
