Why Innovation Is Tough to Define -- and Even Tougher to Cultivate by Knowledge@Wharton, the online business journal of the Wharton School.
Chris Long's insight:
This resonates with me- "The danger is that schools don't allow, or encourage children to fail. "How many kids in school are being given the message that it's OK to try things that are different and then fail because you're going to recover versus how many are told: `Don't take a course you might not do well in; you've got to have a high grade point average?'"
Great overview of the what and the why of culture shift, with some good suggestions for getting started. My favorite - "Educators must be empowered to learn from each other and to change their current practice to move toward a learner-centered environment."
Design Thinking is a mindset. Design Thinking is the confidence that everyone can be part of creating a more desirable future, and a process to take action when faced with a difficult challenge. That kind of optimism is well needed in education.
