“Our inborn genius is our innate and indelible connection to the otherworld of great imagination, original thought, and endless renewal.”
– Michael Meade, ‘The Genius Myth’
The next few weeks mark the launch of two new, personal initiatives about which I’m really excited:
i. ‘Genius Hour with Michael Maser’ on Outschool.com (audience = kids, 10-15 years)
‘Outschool’ is a really interesting initiative offering a wide-ranging marketplace of online classes for kids. Every weekday kids can choose to enroll in classes on just about anything you can imagine! ‘Comic Book Writing’, ‘Discovering Archeological Forgeries’, ‘Hands on Fun with Rational Numbers’ are but three examples of many of Outschool’s offerings.
And now the class offerings include ‘Genius Hour with Michael Maser’! in which I’ll be leading kids to discover and nurture their own genius.
I led classes of this title previously through SelfDesign Learning Community and they were a hoot.
To learn more, see ‘Genius Hour with Michael Maser‘
ii. ‘Personalizing Learning’ certificate course through the Personalized Learning Academy
I’ve been incubating this project a long time and now it’s coming to reality! In November, I am co-leading a course on ‘Personalizing Learning’ via the SelfDesign Learning Foundation. Completing the 10.5 hour course will lead to a certificate in PL from the SDF. My co-pilot for the course is Kandi Horton, an award-winning, PL-oriented teacher in the Wheatland School District, Burlington, Wisconsin.
To share more about the course, Kandi and are I hosting a free information webinar on October 17th; details are available here: Personalizing Learning Information Webinar
And here’s where you will find details about the Personalized Learning Certificate Course.
I’m grateful to everyone who has contributed to helping me launch of these two projects, and maybe I’ll cross paths with you on the journey.
