What's Your I(nnovator) Q(uotient)?

Thanks to Brett Jacobsen, head of school at Mount Vernon Presbyterian School, for inviting me to join him in a conversation about bringing innovation to school. Our chat is featured as a podcast on his new site, Design Movement: 21st Century Learning and Leadership.
We'll be continuing this conversation in person next week at the National Association of Independent Schools Conference in Philadelphia. Joining us for a session on Thursday, February 28, will be Jonathan Martin, former head of St. Gregory School in Tucson. I visited St. Greg's and its Design/Build studio as part of my research for the book. It's a great example of how to make room for thinking and creative problem solving within the school setting.
Please join us if you're headed to NAIS, and let's grow the conversation about creating a new generation of innovators. Here's the podcast:
