I heard today (May 2, 2009) on Twitter about a day for 24 Hours of Innovation. The quote on the web site said,
Having never done anything like this, I was intrigued and am interested in participating. I don’t think it was intended for education, but if we can’t be innovative–and support our students in doing so, will there be innovators in the future?
So, if you’re reading this, do you have ideas for innovative education? Would you share links to YOUR ideas for it, or react to the ideas listed below that I may blog about?
- the iPod Touch Pilot we have going on in our school.
- meeting gifted students’ needs in a regular classroom–and how to innovatively differentiate for that.
- planning for summertime professional development that makes a difference in the level of work (regarding higher level thinking skills) that students will engage in the second half of 2009.
Thanks for any input you share.
I’ll be blogging May 15 at 11.15 pm CET or 5.15 pm EST as part of the 24 Hours of Innovation event.
