The Innovator's Mindset - George Couros

George Couros will highlight some of the trends that are happening in education and the world and how we create a learning environment that is engaging for students. By giving them the ability to create meaningful learning, be innovative, and empower them with a voice, we will see students succeeding long after their time in school. His work will focus on the ideas of "fixed" and "growth" mindset, yet help educators to go a step further with these notions to create the learning opportunities that our students and schools deserve. Learning is not only consumption, but more importantly, it is what we create with the knowledge we have. In this talk, George will discuss the idea and characteristics of the "Innovator's Mindset", and how they can make a significant impact on learning, ourselves and ultimately our students.
