Creativity is as important in education as literacy. Whether the deadline is flexible or firmer—and no matter how long they choose to work on a given topic—after they finish, a presentation is required. Most students are finished with their inquiry and ready to present at the end of six weeks. During Genius Hour presentations, students can practice giving and receiving feedback among classmates. Not only are students motivated to learn, but they also want to learn to be more effective presenters. Their peers can help them improve their presentation skills with their constructive feedback. Students should always practice well. Genius Hour empowers students to make their own choices from the beginning. Students decide what they want to learn about, create, invent, make or figure out, and then they formulate a plan to do so. Research, curation skills, and evaluating the accuracy and credibility of online information and media are important skills that Genius Hour students practice.
