With FHU's Project Development, one of our objectives has been to promote/facilitate innovation in the classroom.

Sometimes it is difficult to put into words ways/means on how to do this and get "non-digital native" users on board with innovating their learning/teaching styles with and without the use of technology.

Here is an interesting article stating Google's 9 Principle's of Innovation:

I can agree with and relate to several of these principles. It's great when you work for a company or institution that supports these ideals. In my opinion, FHU is quickly becoming such a place.

Innovation is not really a hobby.

Remember that famous quote by John Dewey? - "Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself."

Innovation is a habit and a lifestyle. Doesn't innovation by definition fall in line with one of the major philosophical tenets of most fields in academia?

What are you doing to help promote innovation?

Innovation is everything, because without innovation we are nothing.It's the root of revolution and evolution.
