District[x]

 The District[x] Innovation Catalyst

 

In the summer of 2016, I was officially accepted into the Google for Education Certified Innovator program. Attending the Toronto, Ontario Innovator Academy in October 2016. The following is my culminating and resulting project and work.

 

 

The Vision

The vision of the District[x] Innovation Catalyst is to facilitate and support a culture of growth and innovation across an entire school district while creating a model of shared ownership & leadership distributed from bottom to top.

The Solution

The monumental shift that is needed from the traditional, content driven classroom to one that focuses on innovative learning experiences requires a complete transformation in culture across all aspects of the school and district. This goal of this Innovator Project is to create a learning model/framework for district administrators/principals to lead innovation across their schools/district while growing the culture and mindset of their teachers, students, staff, and community.

 

The Project

Attempting to synthesize my work over the past year with my local Loveland[x] team, I’ve organized the work of this project into the following format. My ultimate hope is that this work helps you and your organization establish a community and culture of innovation and growth within your district.

  • The Loveland[x] Innovation Team: Detailing the work that took place locally implementing the District[x] Innovation Catalyst framework.
  • District[x] Resources: With this work taking place in many forms, I’ve organized a collection of resources that should be advantageous in your own pursuit of a District[x] team.
