Embracing the Core of Innovative Teaching and Learning Now and Moving Forward

Sanée Bell says the following; “Students should have rich, relevant, and authentic experiences at school, across the board.” Starting with this thinking, what are some of the ways that we can “innovate inside the box” to immediately empower our students and educators to create those experiences within the school while understanding there are constraints and barriers in education? Although teaching face-to-face is different than in a remote or a hybrid learning situation, the core values of what is important should stay the same no matter the environment. How do we ensure that we support our educators, communities, and students while we are all feeling overwhelmed? How do we embrace the “Innovator’s Mindset” when innovation is no longer optional, but necessary for all learners? The “core of innovative teaching and learning” focuses on four areas where we need to deepen and push our thinking to create an environment within education to develop our students as the leaders of not only tomorrow but give our students opportunities to make an impact on the world today.
