Genius Hour

Term 2's Genius Hour has been completed!

After presenting their projects, Room 1 reflected about their learning during Genius Hour.
Here are some of the comments:
  • Genius Hour taught me about teamwork
  • I had lots of challenges which made me frustrated but I showed resilience to get my work done
  • I learnt how to manage myself which is one of the key competencies
  • I learnt lots of things from the person I was working with
  • I learnt how to use a website called Vibby which I will use again
  • I can't wait to do Genius Hour again, I will do things differently next time, like something that impacts on more people
Here are Room 1's Genius Hour presentations.
