I made this because I think there is an important distinction between learning to code and coding to learn. I think the focus with students doing coding in schools should be coding to learn. Bill Ferriter’s graphic called what do you want kids to do with technology was the inspiration for my graphic. I created this for…
As the world economy shifts away from manufacturing jobs and towards service industry and creative jobs, there’s a consensus among parents, educators, politicians and business leaders that it is crucial students graduate into university or the workforce with the ability to identify and solve complex problems, think critically about information, work effectively in teams and communicate clearly about their thinking.
"I have had a lot of interesting conversations about the notion of “The Innovator’s Mindset“, and this graphic sharing the characteristics (courtesy of Sylvia Duckworth):
One of the things that have to really see is that innovation in school is not about a day, a week, or a class. Although creating those experiences are great, if you look at these characteristics above, how can we promote them through what we do everyday in school?"
The news of Jay Cross's passing away on 6th November came as a bolt from the blue to his scores of admirers. Jay has been an icon and a huge source of inspiration to most of us in the learning community. We, at Learnnovators, were fortunate to interview him a couple of months ago for our "Crytsal Balling With Learnnovators" series. True to form, Jay was brutally honest with his answers and didn't mince words while expressing his views on the state of L&D and its practitioners.

With the result that as we grow older, we stop asking questions. Yet asking good questions is essential to find and develop solutions, and an important skill in innovation, strategy, and leadership. So why do we stop asking questions – and more importantly, why don’t we train each other, and our future leaders, to ask the right questions starting from early on?"
