Welcome to the first ever MIDDSOUTH INNOVATES!
The objective of this newsletter is to share the innovative ideas, lessons, and techniques from around the school, the district, and the world. In each issue, we will showcase both a tech and non-tech based strategy for you to integrate into your classroom. We are always looking for new ideas, so if there is something you have been doing in your classroom, please share it with us!

The Innovator's Mindset
“In a growth mindset students understand that their talents and abilities can be developed through effort, good teaching and persistence. They don’t necessarily think everyone’s the same or anyone can be Einstein, but they believe everyone can get smarter if they work at it.”
George Couros expanded on her work to define the Innovator's Mindset: "the belief that talents, intelligence, and abilities are developed so they lead to the creation of new and better ideas." The core to this is not just that we can learn new things, but that we can create something new from that learning.
Key questions to ask yourself when adopting an Innovator's Mindset:
- How might you create a learning environment that encourages risk taking?
- What risks might YOU take in creating this learning environment?
- What are some ways that you get in the “middle” of learning to understand the needs of those that you serve?
