Critical for school leaders, administrators, and teachers alike, ideation—imagining, finding, evaluating, and developing ideas—is a skill anyone can learn and improve. In this workshop, participants will explore and test “idea storming” and sorting frameworks, as well as practice rapid-prototyping as an evaluation strategy. Ideas rarely appear out of thin air. Learn how to remix and reuse, how to generate ideas through purposeful observation, and how to build a team of idea hunters in order to create an ideation culture in your schools and classrooms.
Key Questions Covered:
- Where do innovative ideas come from?
- How do we identify and act on the best ones?
- What are the attitudes, habits, and skills I need to become an idea hunter?
- How might I leverage small experiments and pilots to build innovation muscle?
