In this episode, award-winning blogger, speaker and author AJ Juliani talks about his passion for implementing an "inquiry-driven" educational system that places an emphasis on empowering schools to use passion and purpose to fuel curiosity in winning the "attention battle" with Generation Z students. Juliani also discusses the importance of Design Thinking and offers tips from his new book, The PBL Playbook: A Step-By-Step Guide To Actually Doing Project-Based Learning, that includes ideas and lesson plans to help bridge the gap to new opportunities for students. Finally, Juliani shares his passion for Genius Hour and 20 Percent Time with four key factors that will allow schools to move away from "recipe-based learning" that will ultimately turn beginning cooks into world-class chefs.
