Innovation is BUILT

Was this helpful?

Students learn to be innovative if they are encouraged. The worst thing educators can do is to create, and yes EVERY educator creates, a learning environment that is rigid, uncomfortable and overly teacher centered. Educators can build innovation into the very fiber of their class structure by establishing an atmosphere that is conducive to interactive, project based and technology enriched learning strategies. This is not to advocate that there be no structure in class but rather to use the structure to further facilitate innovation, creativity and out-of-the-box thinking for students. This is what higher level learning is all about. Thanks for a tremendous, thought provoking post.
