Pure Genius: Building a Culture of Innovation and Taking 20% Time to the Next Level Because innovation deserves more than one hour a week. You've heard the complaints too many times: When am I ever going to use this in the real world? Why are we learning this? When are we going to learn about something interesting? But what if your students came to class excited? What if they were passionate about their projects? What if they grasped the connection between today's work and tomorrow's careers? In classrooms across the nation, innovative teachers are employing passion-based, open-source learning to improve their student's education. In Pure Genius, Don Wettrick encourages teachers and administrators to collaborate--with experts, students, and one another--to create interesting, and even life-changing opportunities for learning. You'll discover: Innovation brings a fresh approach to solving real problems Creative ways to work within the constraints your current budget and system Courses that offer relevant content can inspire students to learn beyond the classroom Collaborating with experts and mentors improves the learning experience for students and teachers Students must be taught and entrusted to appropriately use social media Social media is an incredible resource for inspiration and professional development Innovation is the key to equipping today's students for tomorrow's marketplace. By incorporating the concepts Don explains in Pure Genius, you can empower the next generation to be free thinkers who can create new concepts and products that can change the way we live.

Review:

"Wettrick has incorporated a range of creativity-generating concepts into his teaching and turned his classroom into an innovation factory. This book teaches you how to do the same and still maintain rigorous educational standards. You'll be amazed by his students' accomplishments and eager to put his ideas into practice."
Daniel Pink, author of DRIVE and A WHOLE NEW MIND
 

"Schools are failing our students and are in desperate need of a reboot. Don Wettrick provides compelling examples of innovative practices that create a culture of learning that is relevant and authentic.  His book is a call to action to create an education system that inspires students to learn in ways that not only inspire, but provide skill sets that the real-world demands."   
Eric Sheninger
Author, Digital Leadership

"Level up your learning by understanding the pure genius of having one class dedicated to innovation, making, and the pursuit of student interests. Don Wettrick gives you the definitive guidebook on this transformational method of teaching and transforming school to a relevant place where students want to learn."
Vicki Davis @coolcatteacher, author Reinventing Writing
 

Don Wettrick has turned the traditional classroom experience on its head, allowing the students to take control of their own education. The results are stunning! This book should be the blueprint for the future of education."
