Ten Tips for Creating a Culture of Innovation - Education Elements

Ten Tips for Creating a Culture of Innovation - Education Elements | library life | Scoop.it

Recently it seems that innovation is a buzzword on the tip of everyone’s tongue. Need happier employees? Innovate! Need bigger profits? Innovate! Need better leadership? Innovate!

Over the past six months I’ve explored hundreds of news stories, white papers, and blog posts focused on why and how leaders might foster a culture of innovation. Unfortunately, innovation is too often be touted as a silver bullet solution without even defining what innovation is. Some folks have taken a stand against innovation, given its use as a catchall strategy. Yet I stand firmly in support of innovation as a focus for making better organizations and happier teams. I believe that what is most important is not that we “innovate” for innovation’s sake, but that we create cultures of innovation in our organizations -- cultures that supports risk-taking, reflection, and real collaboration. Out of the hundreds of strategies for and stories of innovation, I believe there are ten key lessons we can draw out to support us in creating cultures of innovation in schools and districts. Why ten lessons? David Letterman, obviously.

Taxonomy Of eLearning: Does eLearning Need A New Taxonomy?

Taxonomy Of eLearning: Does eLearning Need A New Taxonomy? | library life | Scoop.it

"How do we measure success? The accomplishment of one’s goals, right? So, how do we measure success in eLearning? That would depend on who is asked; teacher, student, school manager, or vendor? It is easy to see how this question, then, could cause confusion. Do we then need a new taxonomy of eLearning?"

How to create your own iPad recording booth for the classroom.

How to create your own iPad recording booth for the classroom. | library life | Scoop.it
The creative power of an iPad in the classroom is limitless with its ability for students to show their learning in a multitude of creative ways that look professional. My students love nothing more than to share their knowledge in the form of an iMovie or by using a digital storytelling tool such as Tellagami or Chatterpix or narrating a keynote presentation. But the number one issue we have in the classroom is the background noise when we record these presentations. There is nothing worse than having a fantastic visual product that is let down by poor audio quality, but in a noisy school situation that is a difficult proposition to overcome. So this year we are using our own homemade iPad recording booths.

mrsjgarcia's curator insight, February 7, 8:48 AM
This is a great idea. Sound is always an issue at our school when recording on iPads. You could even use regular boxes, cover them in cloth and experiment with different materials to line them with as part of a STEAM project.

It is not the schools that fail. It is people running schools and deciding what should be done in each classroom. Not only do they fail the children, they fail teachers. We confuse reform for transforming schools.

The TIM associates five levels of technology integration (i.e., entry, adoption, adaptation, infusion, and transformation) with each of the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments. Together, the five levels of technology integration and the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments create a matrix of 25 cells as illustrated below.
