Publisher's 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: it's about a mindset.
The Innovator's Mindset is for you if: 


You are a superintendent, district administrator, or principal who wants to empower your staff to create a culture of innovation
You are a school leader - at any level - and want to help students and educators become their personal best
You are a teacher who wants to create relevant learning experiences and help students develop the skills they need to be successful
You'll be inspired to:


Connect with other innovative educators
Support teachers and leaders as learners
Tap into the strength of your learning community
Create ongoing opportunities for innovation
Seek more effective methods for measuring progress
And, most importantly, embrace change and use it to do something amazing

Educational innovation!

Outstanding work painting a strong vision about what our public education could be through innovation. George is a practitioner, not necessarily a researcher. A must read for all educators!

A Must!

I listened to this book every time I got in my car for a week. Halfway through it I downloaded the Kindle version too and I’m now about to listen to the audio version for a 2nd time. This book is a pivotal read/listen if you’re an Educator. Everything I believe about Teaching as well as all the stuff I didn’t know I believed (!) IS IN THIS BOOK. Get acquainted with George on Twitter too - he has some really good thoughts both inside and outside of the box!
