10 Ways to Teach Innovation | MindShift

10 Ways to Teach Innovation | MindShift | Innovative Design in Educational commons | Scoop.it

Getty By Thom Markham One overriding challenge is now coming to the fore in public consciousness: We need to reinvent just about everything. 

Whether scientific advances, technology breakthroughs, new political and economic structures, environmental solutions, or an updated code of ethics for 21st century life, everything is in flux—and everything demands innovative, out of the box thinking.

Teaching innovation means incorporating project based learning, with less focus of learning outcomes and more focus on teaching concepts.  Yippee for the move away from how much we know, to creative and solution based learning.  

Carol Koechlin's curator insight, April 2, 2013 7:56 PM

Wise approaches. Innovative teaching will no doubt lead to student risk taking, creativity and innovation.

How to Fuel the Innovation Engine in Learning

How to Fuel the Innovation Engine in Learning | Innovative Design in Educational commons | Scoop.it

Can creativity be taught? If innovation is truly the key to this country’s success, then it’s time to think strategically about engendering creativity into our education system.

That’s part of Tina Seelig’s thesis in her new book Ingenius: A Crash Course on Creativity. Case in point: In schools, when we give students math problems to solve, we ask simply, “What’s the sum of 10+10?” to which there is only one right answer. But Seelig says we should turn the question on its head, and ask, “How many ways can you add 10+10?” The question you ask is the frame in which the answers will fall, Seelig says.
