Cultivating a Culture of Innovation: 5 L.E.A.P. Tips & Voices from the Field

In my book, Take the L.E.A.P.: Ignite a Culture of Innovation, I share L.E.A.P. Tips and Takeaways, along with questions for reflection and discussion at the conclusion of each chapter. The thoughtfully crafted questions encourage educators in all roles to reflect on the essential ingredients that inspire every individual to Take the L.E.A.P. and create the conditions to empower learning. Each chapter is designed to support educators where they’re at in their journey, allowing each of us to move at our own pace and take steps to grow beyond traditional and self-imposed boundaries. Ultimately, my goal is to support you in creating the innovative learning experiences today’s learners need to flourish. This month, our L.E.A.P. tips focus on creating a culture where creativity and authentic learning experiences flourish in a school– leading to a culture of innovation. All too often I find that when educators hear the word, “innovation,” they think of technology. Although technology can enhance a culture of innovation, our goal is to identify the essential elements that develop the foundation for innovation and learning to thrive. In The Innovator’s Mindset, George Couros discusses this at length, and shares that innovation is when we design things that are […]
