What’s AMPed?

I’m sure you’ve heard your child talking about their AMPed (Autonomous, Mastered, Purposeful Education) project, or just mentioning that they have an interest or a passion about something.

Inspired by Mr. Machinello and some of his students,  a couple of weeks ago, we started learning more about AMPed.

Mr. Ruthai is leading this AMPed project, also known as genius hour and he came to launch it.

The goal is to facilitate students to work on something they like, an interest they might have, for 30-40 minutes a week, so they can use their free time at home to learn more about or to work on it.

We are still at the very beginning of the process, brainstorming our favourite things to do at school and home, as well as the things/activities  we don’t enjoy so much, so little by little we are narrowing our preferences.

In addition, this project’s aim is to foster complex thinking and independent learning. Students can choose to do it individually or with a friend.

As I said, we are just at the beginning of our journey.
