TAP Stage Three: Exemplars

Okay, so I have to come clean: this is by no means an original idea of mine. While I’ve created this short online course to teach teachers how to implement their own Awesome Project, plenty of information is already out there for teachers that just want to click around and build the project on their own. For Stage Three, spend about thirty minutes clicking through the following sites:

Genius Hour

20% Time in Education

I’d also recommend the lecture posted here. While it’s not professionally recorded, it does cover just about all of the major areas of concern that a teacher might have before embarking on a project like this.

To complete Stage 3, you need to do a different sort of task. Have a conversation with a member of your community – parent, colleague, or administrator – about ideas you have encountered thus far in the course. Post the reactions / thoughts of your community member below.


Respond thoughtfully to the ideas of another learner who has already posted in the comments by asking them a clarifying question or building on their ideas. (Or if you are the first learner ask me a clarifying question in the comment section.)

Alright! You’re getting ready to see what’s behind the curtain in Stage Four: Design Principles. Click on the lightbulb to move forward.
