Few articles are quite important in relation to this guide. They are – BlogPosting, Blog, Article and TechArticle Markup of schema.org; Basics of Schema and Genesis 2.0 Schema.org Guide.

So, the basic thing is, there are lot of variables to add. You either can add as a plugin in usual way we do (i.e. as div or span elements of HTML5) or you can use JSON.
TechArticle schema : WordPress Plugin
This TechArticle Schema WordPress Plugin is Free, under GNU GPL 3.0, in Alpha version, not recommended to use in your productive website but test blog. Please request for the zip file. Anyway, all the others, in general (we are writing for Genesis 2.0) you inject these through any plugin like Genesis Simple Hooks with PHP function enabled to execute:
This is very primitive way to get the schema markup, might break theme if not added in right place. This is actually not what is in Plugin for sure.
Another way is to modify Genesis 2.0 core and change the BlogPosting markup to TechArticle markup. You have to avoid hitting the update function to avoid over writing of the modification. I am not sure about legal aspect of such modification for a paid theme, but definitely that way to add the right markup is the perfect way simply because adding various kind of Schema actually make the Bot confused.
