Passion projects or independent study opportunities give students voice and choice in their learning. How can instructors find the time to fit these strategies into their classrooms? See how you can set up your own passion project assignment using Google Classroom to guide students through steps that they "unlock" as they work at their own pace. Topics include: introduction, samples, planning, 'help desk', research skills, digital citizenship, searching for information, organizing research, and final project ideas. Students can get asynchronous help using digital feedback tools and individualization with all work being done independently by students from home.
