If you attended the TDSB’s Google Camp 3 on Saturday you will have heard the keynote by Canadian educator George Couros. The Library has copies of Couros’ 2015 book titled The Innovator’s Mindset: Empower Learning, Unleash Talent, and Lead a Culture of Creativity. 

From page 120: ” Innovation is a mindset – a way of thinking that creates something new and better.”

The book has 4 parts:

Part 1: what innovation is and isn’t; mindsets and characteristics of the innovators’ mindsets

Part 2: creating a culture of innovation; importance of relationships; shared vision for learning

Part 3: making the change happen in particular by harnessing technology; “technology invites us to move from engaged to empowered” (p. 140)

Part 4: creating the culture where innovation and change  constantly moves us forward “today’s innovation could be tomorrow’s norm” (p 216).
