20% Time is a simple concept that every teacher can execute successfully. The concept was taken from Google’s 20% Time model and applied within a K-12 educational setting. Students are given 20% of their time to work on student-designed projects, which align the curriculum with their passions to help to identify their career path. Under the guidance of their teacher, students create their own goals and assessments, which truly makes for a purposeful and collaborative classroom environment— a piece of the pie that made Google enterprises so successful!

20% Time provides students with more freedom over their learning, hence sparking curiosity and increasing innovation and intrinsic motivation.
