AubreeNoelle2 Student choice. Choice in how they show me what they know, choice in the projects they partake in, even choice in what they read can spark that curiosity. CHOICE. twitter.com/dougeb00/statu…

bakerleft A6: Teachers and administrators need to say “yes” more and “no” less. Just as students should be allowed to take chances in learning, teachers should also be allowed to take professional chances.

markemoran A7: I’ve created a course that drives student passion-based innovation & creates a culture of mattering throughout the school. The student materials are about 3 hours of video plus activities & reflection. bit.ly/C2MCourse

A7 Challenge teachers and staff to PRUNE individual goals and priorities instead of just adding to an already large list. Then encourage scheduled time (on the calendar) for reflection, collaboration & brainstorming. Model this as an administrator

A8 We can communicate the value of an innovative culture by sharing and celebrating examples of it whenever we can. Newsletters, social media, short talks at faculty and parent meetings - Constantly amplifying with words & media!

via Twitter Web Client

markemoran @dougeb00 A6. Authentically celebrate their achievements. Not just inside the school - call local news, include it in the newsletter / social media. Encourage them to take the next step and dream bigger.

@teachonyourtoes I agree with this 100% and so does @sfryer. Morning meetings can be HUGELY helpful in shaping classroom culture and building classroom community! twitter.com/teachonyourtoe…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to teachonyourtoes

teachonyourtoes A4)I make time for a morning meeting it takes time but is so valuable to my classroom community. It encourages them to share ideas and listen. Offer ideas and encourage others. Some of the most teachable moments come from morning meeting or closing circle.

AubreeNoelle2 Stole this from my mom, for elementary level. We have a marble jar that is JUST for “beautiful brain work”. Anytime a student tries something, makes a helpful mistake, perserveres, thinks outside of the box they put a brain work marble in. twitter.com/dougeb00/statu…

@tutaleni I don’t think we’ve formally defined innovation in this chat, but have definitely shared different ways to encourage & celebrate it! So I’d say innovation is being defined independently most likely in many different ways :-)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to tutaleni

ejbband21 A5) Letting Ss input on things. If there’s something I don’t like in marching band and I’m thinking of changing. I tell the Ss what I’m thinking and get feedback. Sometimes their ideas work better and gives them ownership of the product.

A6 Amplify local innovation by inviting students to share short presos at upcoming school board meetings. Ask students to share short stories of innovation at faculty meetings. Record a “quick edit video” with each student & share on social media! showwithmedia.com/quick-edit-vid…pic.twitter.com/zxb7tyhNMQ

via Twitter Web Client

A6 Create a “learning showcase” blog to amplify examples of student / teacher creativity & innovation at school! Would love to see more websites like this, using social media to TELL and SHARE our stories with constituents. More on: oklaed.us/about/

via Twitter Web Client

A5 Permit more open access to Internet websites at school. All social media & interactive websites should NOT be blocked at school. Support a learning culture of accountability & responsibility, & support positive choices by students as well as teachers.

kennethdward A3 Makerspaces, PBL, Group work all great but we have to move the culture towards these activities. Move away from requiring a certain number of grades & we must move away from chasing grades. We must chase learning instead!

kennethdward A2 Late checking in. Create environments where failures are seen as growth opportunities & their are incentives for T’s to be innovative. But most of all we have to cre8 situations where T’s have time to think of ways to be innovative instead of just surviving!
