The 20% Project Google Style

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The 20% Project is an idea developed at IBM and later adopted and expanded by Google. Google employees are encouraged to spend 20% of their work time dedicated to "passion" projects that ultimately improve upon and expand the Google brand of service and product offerings as well as venture into new R&D projects and community based philanthropic projects. The concept of The 20% Project as applied in the classroom is a means for students to explore their own fascination and passion surrounding academic content standards. Learn how the 20% project was developed for classroom use in the Google CAPE (Computer and Programming Experience) Summer program. As the Faculty Advisor for Google CAPE I was able to modify this for school use and eventually launched The 20% Project in my Algebra and Technology classes in middle school. In this session I will share the experience from CAPE and my 3 years of classroom practice and together we can brainstorm how you can adopt such a project for your own classroom. You will leave this session with a wealth of useable ideas for classroom practice and find new ways to utilize Google Tools to manage such a project.
