The HMW question inspired me to think about the innovation teams in my district and how they've put routines in place that encourage innovation. This short video showcases three of our teams. As you listen to the team leaders talk about their innovations, take some notes about the routines that they've put in place to nurture a culture of innovation.
The Project CASTLE team implemented passion-based learning and worked with a "loose and tight" structure. Students were able to pursue their passions, but routines were in place in the classroom to allow them to be successful. Students were able to learn with mentors and they created amazing projects which were shared with the community.
