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?

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.

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.
