1 Valerie Hannon: The Innovation Unit, England 2008 Curriculum Corporation Conference Melbourne, Australia November 2008 ‘Only Connect’ Learning Innovation

2 There has never been a better time to embark on a complete rethink of our priorities

3 The dream of wellbeing dreamt until now by a few is not sustainable for all. We have to change. We have to learn how to live better, consuming fewer environmental resources and regenerating the contexts of life. Ezio Manizini Poitecnico of Milan

4 real lives processes values ideas organisations

5 The beginnings of a research field…

6 An emerging UK field of thought leadership…

7 …with an exploding array of exemplary social innovation organisations…

8 …and an inspiring catalogue of social innovation practice

9 Idea set #1: Von Hippel, Leadbeater, Shirky profound changes have arisen in business and social enterprises because ICT enables mass collaboration, and self organisation on a massive scale users are developing products/services with companies freely and open-sourced: democratised innovation a different model of social change: transformation by many small steps

10 Idea set #2: Clayton Christensen Disruptive innovation is what is needed to transform learning/schooling D.I. is a positive force: it’s the process where an innovation transforms a market where services are complicated and expensive into one characterised by simplicity, convenience and accessibility D.I. disrupts the upward improvement trajectory Often poorer, initially, than conventional service; so not attractive to market leaders and their customers

11 the principles of social innovation…. open collaborative free with (not ‘to’ or ‘for’)

12 Connect learning ecosystems!

13 engages children in growing and celebrating food twin concepts of the open classroom and expanded faculty brings together gardeners, artists, cooks, teachers, and the local community “to know our world through a plot of land”
