My response to Chapter 2: The innovator’s mindset: Empowering learning, unleash talent, and lead a culture of creativity (Couros, 2015)

What keeps resonating with me is the idea that innovation is not about the stuff; it is a way of thinking (Couros, 2015). In Chapter 2, of The Innovators Mindset, Couros takes this idea one step further by describing the innovator’s mindset as the “belief that the abilities, intelligence, and talents are developed so that they can lead to the creation of new and better ideas.” (Couros, 2015 Loc 545) My reaction to this thinking is to interpret it as a call to action for educators to create something new with the knowledge that they have – to move beyond (as described by Couros) – an education that is provided for us towards something we create ourselves. Educators worldwide are taking hold of this style of learning as they participate in their own, self-created PD (blogs, social meets, wikis, twitter).
