Nancy White's curator insight, January 6, 2013 12:06 PM

3 excellent points in defining innovation and the importance of this in schools:

 

"...anyone knows that in order to get really good at something, we all HAD to have failed numerous times, then gotten back on that saddle, and attended more closely to where we failed in order to get better. This surfaces our first point: we must have a growth or dynamic habit of mind, one that embraces the insights gained from failure."

 

" ...we innovate and grow through a non-linear process of exploring, envisioning and enacting."

 

and

 

"..these three actions of exploring, envisioning and enacting should be what every kid in our schools can creatively and confidently "master." Unlike the learners in schools of the past, 21st-century learners will not be successful based on how many facts and pieces they have memorized. The successful learner will be able to study a problem in depth (explore), rapidly prototype radical solutions (envision), and test those approaches (enact) for failure and refining."

Google's Open Course Builder: A Giant Leap into 21st-Century Online Learning

Google's Open Course Builder: A Giant Leap into 21st-Century Online Learning | New Education Models | Scoop.it
"Google's mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful." -- About Google

Google is the most powerful nonhuman teacher ever known to actual humans. Implicitly and ceaselessly, Google performs formative assessments by collecting the following data: the content, genre and media that interests you most; when and for how long you access your external cloud brain; what your hobbies and routines are; with whom you work and communicate; who will get your November vote; and whether you prefer invigorating clean mint or enamel renewal toothpaste. By continuously refining the nuance of your sociogram, Google has already customized your next web exploration and taught itself to teach.

 

You Are Now Entering the Learning Management System

 

Months ago, Google entered the massive open online course (MOOC) space by introducing the free Power Searching with Google course to 150 thousand self-enrolled students (shocker: Google is not particularly concerned with enhancing your use of dozens of alternative search engines). More recently, Google gave away Open Course Builder -- tools that were used to construct its popular course -- and further disrupted traditional notions of who gets to play teacher (anyone) and how many students can take a class for free (1 or 100,000).
