Renewal as Innovation
Very often we think of innovation as new and original thoughts, materials, and ideas, and while innovation does take place in this space, some incredible innovation actually comes from the renewal of previous ideas. It means reworking the good stuff with a new lens or new energy, so that it impacts a new audience in a positive way. These final weeks of school are a great opportunity to attempt this type of innovation by renewing and recombining bits and pieces of good ideas. It will ramp up classroom engagement and authentic learning.
