By: Couros, GeorgeMaterial type: TextTextPublication details: [S.l.] : Dave Burgess Consulting, 2015Description: x, 237 pages 23 cmISBN: 9780986155499Subject(s): Innovators | Educational change | Innovation | Educators | DDC classification: 653.3 COU Online resources: Click here to access online Summary: Kids walk into schools full of wonder and questions. How you, as an educator, respond to students’ natural curiosity can help further their own exploration and shape the way they learn today and in the future. The traditional system of education requires students to hold their questions and compliantly stick to the scheduled curriculum. But our job as educators is to provide new and better opportunities for our students. It’s time to recognize that compliance doesn’t foster innovation, encourage critical thinking, or inspire creativity—and those are the skills our students need to succeed. In THE INNOVATOR'S MINDSET, George Couros encourages teachers and administrators to empower their learners to wonder, to explore—and to become forward-thinking leaders. If we want innovative students, we need innovative educators. In other words, innovation begins with you. Ultimately, innovation is not about a skill set but about mindset.
