This a gentle, simple introduction to the notion that innovation skills can be developed. Our urban myth is that innovation and creativity belongs to the select few. Creativity and innovation skills can be learned. Like all skills they take time and effort. Like all skills the initial stages are satisfying but also sometimes frustrating.

How to Design a Classroom Built on Inquiry, Openness and Trust - @wrightsroom Mind/Shift

How to Design a Classroom Built on Inquiry, Openness and Trust - @wrightsroom  Mind/Shift | Transformational Teaching and Technology | Scoop.it
Teachers who are interested in shifting their classrooms often don’t know where to start. It can be overwhelming, frightening, and even discouraging, especially when no one else around you seems to think the system is broken.

A question I’m asked often is, “Where should a teacher begin?” Should teachers just let students go or is there a process to good student-centered inquiry? I’ve reflected on this a fair amount, and I think small strategic steps are the key. I think letting students “go” without any structure will likely create failure, especially if students haven’t spent much time collaborating. Skills need to be modeled.

Via John Evans
Chris Carter's insight:

All effective teaching is relational at heart. Without a modicum of trust that the teacher has the students' interests in mind, there is no ability to effectively communicate. In place of trust is an adversarial relationship in which the students attempt to protect their sense of self from the teacher.

A very good article that focuses on new possibility of VR use cross classrooms and countries. 

VR platform offerings could result in a curator or artist guiding a group of thousands around a museum exhibition or cultural site, or an actor or professor leading a virtual master class in real time with students from all over the world.
