10 Ways to teach Innovation

http://blogs.kqed.org/mindshift/2013/04/10-ways-to-teach-innovation/

I read this article early this morning and loved the concept!  I just podcasted about it!  A few of the things that really stood out to me were:

* Move from projects to Project Based Learning

* Teach concepts not facts

* Make skills as important as knowledge

*Form teams not groups (seems like a small change- but  I predict it really matters!)

*Reward discovery (I plan to focus on this much more!)  I like the idea of also rewarding challenge and effort.

* Make reflection part of the lesson

*Be innovative yourself (I can always improve on this)
