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

Inspiring and Thought Provoking

Having already read The Innovator’s Mindset a few months ago, I was excited to see that there was an audio version available. I downloaded it, started listening to it and was instantly inspired. I felt the energy coming from George as he read it, the passion in his voice and message transpires through the pages. As I listened, I also noticed that there were added stories from George! I’d highly recommend this audiobook to anyone interested in learning and growing.

Innovation is not about the stuff, it is a way of thinking.

The Innovator’s Mindset is the go-to resource for teachers and leaders looking to create more meaningful learning experiences for students and staff. George Couros will challenge your thinking about how we currently “do school” and open your mind to new possibilities. So often, frustrated educators talk about throwing out the current model to create something totally different, but that is not possible. Instead of wishful thinking, learn ways to innovate “inside the box” and make a powerful impact on learning. George's ideas also fit beautifully with the bold school transformation movement happening across Texas through the creation of Districts of Innovation. Listening to George will help you understand why we must provide new and better learning opportunities for our students. He will inspire you to make (and lead) the needed changes in today's classrooms. If you are looking for inspiration and strategies to move innovation from buzzword to reality at your school, this audiobook is for you!
