Building a Culture of Innovation

Innovation is a buzzword that gets thrown around a lot. But what does innovation mean for a school? Do teachers just throw students in a room and say “be innovative” and it happens magically?
This session answers the question on how you get your group innovative¬- by taking the first step- building a culture of innovation and creativity. Everyone will leave with specific things then can implement immediately into their class environment, and how to avoid the trap of compliance and limitations for your students.   We will be reminded why we go back to these old habits of “the traditional classroom,” and how we can get school administrators to buy in. With a combination of humor, audience participation, and energizing examples of student work, Don will demonstrate how to build a culture of innovation and creativity.
